Listen, we obviously love this city (we’re called Vancouver magazine, after all) but, sometimes, isn’t it nice to pretend to be… away? When that feeling hits, that’s when we waltz through the lustrous lobby of the Hotel Georgia and ride up the elevator to the fourth-floor oasis: an open-air patio hugged by the hotel’s brick facades. Is this New York? London? Ponder the possibilities as you lounge under the pergola—draped with greenery and lights, of course, they’re not animals—and consider a quick nap on the cushy, low-slung sofas.
This isn’t the place to source a cheap-and-cheerful pitcher of beer, but if you’re looking for an indulgent, sophisticated afternoon getaway (no flight required), nothing beats this secret garden in the sky. Sip the maracuya colada ($24), an upscale take on the classic all-inclusive slushie: Black Barrel rum, passion fruit puree, coconut milk and coconut syrup just add to the transportive vibes. An equally enticing zero-proof cocktail menu makes the rooftop-ish experience something special for non-imbibers, too—the virgin watermelon mojito ($16) is a true taste of summer. Modern share-plate classics like blistered shishitos ($16) and salmon aburi ($27) will please your fellow faux travellers. Another round? rosewoodhotels.com
