Vancouver: With Glowing Hearths

Vancouver: With Glowing Hearths

Although the motto of the 2010 Winter Games is „With Glowing Hearts“ this collection of popular restaurants and lounges is sure to have visitors raving about Vancouver’s glowing hearths (as in fireplaces).

Bacchus Lounge at the Wedgewood Hotel and Spa

Flames flicker, the piano man plays, wine flows. Snag a table beside the fireplace in this richly appointed lounge and watch downtown Vancouver’s movers and shakers unwind under a striking canvas (and watchful eye) of the Greek god of wine and revelry.

Yaletown Brewing Company

Vancouver’s original brewpub is home to what is arguably Vancouver’s most unique fireplace. Salvaged from a 200-year-old building in Mexico City, this wood-burning fireplace is made from Cantera stone. Order a hand-crafted beer, stand next to the hearth (fashioned from salvaged granite steps) and enjoy the snap-crackle-pop of a real fire.

Zin Restaurant and Lounge at the Pacific Palisades Hotel

Mandarin orange loveseats, overstuffed easy chairs and dark wood coffee tables set around a metallic fireplace give the Zin Lounge a fun, fashion-forward vibe. Order a sassy cocktail and nibble on innovative, artfully prepared food while enjoying the warmth of the fire.

YEW restaurant + bar at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver

With sophisticated yet approachable West Coast cuisine and over 150 wines by the glass from which to choose, visitors are well advised to get comfortable in one of the leather loveseats or dining tables that sit on either side of YEW’s floor-to-soaring-ceiling sandstone fireplace.

Gerard Lounge at the Sutton Place Hotel

Tucked in a cozy corner, with a moose head above the mantel and large leather chairs pulled close, the fireplace in the Gerard Lounge is the perfect spot to sip a martini and watch the „who’s who“ of the film and entertainment industry who frequent this clubby lounge (and who gave the moose its nickname, Herb).
