A game-changing entertainment development in Vancouver is coming soon, and it’ll have plenty of Las Vegas flavor.
Parq Vancouver is set to open this fall in the British Columbian city’s downtown district, a LEED Gold Standard development that includes two luxury lifestyle hotels—Western Canada’s first JW Marriott Hotel and first-to-market Autograph Collection Hotel concept the Douglas—along with 72,000 square feet of casino space, a 30,000-square-foot rooftop park, meeting and event space and eight restaurants and lounges crafted and curated by award-winning Las Vegas-based restaurateurs Elizabeth Blau and chef Kim Canteenwalla.
Among the restaurant offerings: a Vancouver version of Honey Salt, serving farm-to-table cuisine in a warm, welcoming environment; BC Kitchen, a classic comfort food bar; the Victor, a seafood and steakhouse boasting impressive views of the water and downtown skyline; and 1886, named for the year Vancouver’s Chinatown first emerged and specializing in dishes from Canton, Szechuan, Hunan and Shanghai.
Bar and lounge concepts include D/6, an indoor/outdoor sky bar on the sixth floor of the Douglas, and Lotus Whiskey and Tea Lounge, an exotic and sophisticated destination adjacent to the high-limit gaming area.
Years in the works, the Parq Vancouver food and beverage portfolio is sure to parallel the overall experience with a distinct, multicultural voice that reflects its dynamic city.
