We've got a lot of fun ways to celebrate summer here, but nothing says "summer" like Vancouver's rooftop pool patio. There's a place that does a pop-up patio only twice a week and it's perfect for sipping cocktails poolside. The pop-up patio is returning to the Westin Grand downtown and you will definitely want to meet your friends there for happy hour drinks and bites!
There are very few rooftop-style patios in Vancouver to enjoy and even fewer still that serve drinks! You have to take advantage of this summer hangout spot ASAP since they're only open for a short while.
On the third floor of the Westin Grand, this hidden poolside patio is totally chill and comfortable. You'll really be able to slow down over drinks and appies here with your friends. If you work downtown, then this is the best place to go for happy hour in the summer.
Their pop-up patio menu features summertime favourites like sliders, watermelon salad and fish tacos. Their drink menu includes a "Poolside Cosmo" but it's the Italian-inspired Aperol Spritz that's probably going to be the #1 summer cocktail in Vancouver.
Although the patio's opening hours are weather dependent, it's slated to be open throughout the summer on Thursdays and Fridays from 4 PM to 8 PM only. This exclusive patio space has a great view of the pool and going here feels like being on vacation!
