Set at the recently renovated Westin Grand, Hendricks Resto-Lounge is Vancouver’s newest hotel bar with a rock ‘n roll edge that’s sure to delight locals and tourists alike. Celebrate spring with a 2-for-1 deal on the Like Clockwork cocktail.
There is a lot to like about Hendricks Resto-Lounge, the vinyl record bar motif, the slick marble surfaces, lots of brass details and a generous sprinkling of rock ‘n roll edge (check out the love is my drug neon lights on the wall). It’s no surprise that the room, and entire hotel, was designed by Los Angeles-based designer, David Hill, who’s worked on some of the coolest hotels, bars and restaurants across California.
The menu spans the globe with to-die-for cauliflower tater-tots, a mouth watering seafood Ceviche and a toungue-in-cheek twist on General Tso’s chicken called naughty bits. Executive Chef Chris Savino’s lighthearted take on exquisite lounge fair hits all the right notes.
Need more to get you through the crosstown traffic? Take your little wings, float over to the bar and say Hi to the lead bar manager, Simon Hawley.
