Last night I was invited to the re-opening of one of the nicest and secluded patios in the city, Reflections in the Rosewood Hotel Georgia. Reflections is an elegant alfresco rooftop bar and lounge, located on the hotel’s fourth floor and surrounded by the storied walls of the 85 year-old historic building. With locally-sourced menu ingredients, classically-inspired cocktails, sleek teak furniture and a striking peek-through of the Vancouver skyline.
Guests mingled over Champagne cocktails, wine and beer while eating some delicious canapés, I loved the Short Rib Beef Mini’s, Striped Shrimp Terrine, Smoked Sablefish & Salmon Croquetas and Scallop Ceviche.
On one side, six exclusive cabanas face a roaring stone fire pit, complete with plush cushions and warming heaters for cooler nights; on the other, oversized teak couches and polished tables are flanked by a gleaming chrome cocktail bar and grill, home to an exceptional team of bartenders and talented cooks.
Reflections is open daily from noon til late. For reservations please telephone 604.673.7043 and for menus and more information visit www.rosewoodhotelgeorgia.com
