From delicious drinks to hearty meals to share with friends and even a couple of unique settings, we’ve got you covered this winter.

Here are 10 of the best heated patios in Vancouver to check out.

The Keefer Yard

Easily one of the most unique concepts in the city, The Keefer Yard sits directly beside one of Vancouver’s most acclaimed bars. Here, you can enjoy incredible cocktails, delicious food, and screaming happy hour deals. And of course, there’s mini golf by donation as well!

Where: 135 Keefer Street

CRAFT English Bay

A fairly recent addition to the city, CRAFT English Bay offers a whole new way to look at the iconic beach. Located on the second floor, this heated patio even features a retractable roof, which means that it’s a great place to check out rain or shine.

Where: 1795 Beach Avenue

Marche Mon Pitou

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

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

Vij’s

A little rooftop dining at one of the city’s most iconic spots? 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

The Roof at Black + Blue

Already one of the best heated patios in Vancouver, The Roof underwent a major redesign last year, and we think it’s better for it. Goodbye, dark and moody lounge setting. Hello, light and airy setting complete with new furnishings and custom-created flower installations.

Where: 1032 Alberni 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

Anh and Chi

Finally, we come to one of our top picks for heated patios in Vancouver. Not only did Anh and Chi usher in a new era of contemporary (and vegan) Vietnamese cuisine to the city, but they also set a new standard for how you get to enjoy it. Our only advice here? Go hungry, so you can try whatever your heart desires.

Where: 3388 Main Street

Ok folks, that’s our roundup of the best heated patios to check out in Vancouver! Now, you’ve got options whether you’re feeling a light and lively after work snack or a full blown feast one weekend.
