The glass-covered heated courtyard patio at Brix and Mortar is the epitome of date night. White tablecloth-clad tables are surrounded by romantic vines, garden lights, and a giant chandelier. Doesn’t get much better than that.

Where: 1137 Hamilton Street

CRAFT English Bay

A fairly recent addition to the city, CRAFT English Bay offers a whole new way to take in the beach no matter the season. Located on the second floor, this heated patio even features a retractable roof, twinkling garden lights, and of course, all the amazing happy hour deals we’ve come to know & love at CRAFT.

Where: 1795 Beach Avenue

Ready to feel like you’re sitting at a Parisian cafe? Well, one of the easiest ways to do that is at Marche Mon Pitou. The South Granville location (just a stone’s throw from the Public Market) has a few cute little outdoor tables, with heaters overhead, for you to kick back at and watch folks as they go about their day.

Where: 1387 W 7th Avenue

LOCAL Public Eatery Kitsilano

Long hailed by university students and residents alike, LOCAL in Kits is the place to go after a day at the beach in the summer. However, we’re letting you know that their patio (and the ocean views it affords) is open year-round, and is a wonderful option on those chilly winter days.

Where: 2210 Cornwall Avenue

If it’s one thing that the Glowbal Group knows best – it’s how to create an amazing patio dining experience. And The Roof at Black + Blue is no exception, with one of the best patios in the city. With hanging vines and delicious sips all around you, it will definitely keep the summer vibes going.

Where: 1032 Alberni Street, 3rd floor

Seasons in The Park

Maybe one of the most iconic patios in the city, Seasons in the Park offers incredible views no matter where you’re sitting. Perched in Queen Elizabeth Park, you’ll be treated to an unrivalled vista of the city as you enjoy your meal. Perfect for a ‘treat yourself’ dinner.

Where: Queen Elizabeth Park, 33rd Avenue

A little rooftop dining at one of the city’s most iconic spots (and Michelin-recognized)? Yeah, that sounds like a plan to us. Whether it’s your first time visiting or a monthly thing, Vij’s patio offers a relaxed and relatively secluded way to enjoy one of Vancouver’s foundational restaurants.

Where: 3106 Cambie Street

Giardino Restaurant

Speaking of iconic, Giardino Restaurant downtown has long been regarded as one of the gold standards for Italian cuisine in Vancouver. And, luckily, their incredibly lush outdoor patio only helps with the dining experience, transporting diners to the rustic charm of northern Italy.

Where: 1328 Hornby Street

Banter Room

Look no further than Banter Room for one of the best patios in Yaletown. Thanks to the ability to fully enclose, this patio offers a wonderful option for when the weather truly takes a turn for the worst. And, Vancouver in the winter has no shortage of that happening.

Where: 1039 Mainland Street

Finally, we come to one of our top picks for heated patios in the city by far. Not only did Anh and Chi usher in a new era of contemporary (and vegan) Vietnamese cuisine to the city, but they’ve also set a new standard for how you get to enjoy it – surrounded by beautiful vines, twinkling lights, and a fire pit. Our only advice here? Come hungry and do not skip out on the spring rolls.

Where: 3388 Main Street

This patio pick takes outdoor dining to a whole new level with the ultimate winter experience. Heated dome dining, innovative fall & winter-themed cocktails and treats, ornate Christmas decor, and even snow. While the experience doesn’t come cheap, it’s definitely worth splurging on for a special occasion or celebratory meal this season.

You can book a table here.

And that’s our roundup, Vancouver. We hope you stay warm in the chilly season ahead and get to enjoy some festive eats & drinks.
