Bridges Iconic Waterfront Patio Opens April 20th!

Bridges Restaurant


Glorious Summer!
To borrow from Shakespeare, on April 20th, Vancouver’s winter of discontent will be made glorious summer by the opening of our iconic Waterfront Patio! Yes, it’s true! After a miserable winter, full of sound and fury, rain and sleet, there are signs that summer is approaching! And for those who live in Vancouver, the clues that summer is nigh are not the appearance of chirping Robins nor the sound of lawnmowers, but rather the appearance of our famous patio umbrellas blossoming open like tulips on the water.

A Vancouver Patio Tradition
Indeed, for over 30 years, the opening of our waterfront patio has been a highly anticipated Vancouver tradition! It’s a collective harbinger of summer, sun, fun and some of the best comfort food in town!

Patio Pioneers
To be honest, we were pioneers in what is now referred to as “Vancouver’s Patio Culture.” We knew that locals and, let’s face it, the world come to our amazing city in large part because of our natural beauty, so creating one of the largest patios overlooking Vancouver’s breathtaking English Bay and sublime snow-capped mountains seemed like a no-brainer! Since our first patio opening, we’ve hosted tens of thousands of sun-loving guests, celebrities, and dignitaries the world-over. And we’re about to do it all again!

A Patio for All Reasons
Our gorgeous patio is perfect for any occasion. Bring the kids down for some juicy cheeseburgers and crispy fries, or celebrate your Beer League’s first win (or loss) with a round of cold ones! We’ve got a great selection of local craft and microbrew beer on tap!

Patio Love
Want something a little more intimate? There are few locations better suited for a romantic sunset dinner than our patio at twilight. Your date will be impressed with the ambiance and our culinary creations. Add a glass of fine wine and throw in one of our delectable desserts (made in-house daily), and you’ve got the makings of a magical evening! It’s no surprise that we’ve had many marriage proposals at Bridges!

Summer Classics, Old, and New!
Our summer staff is gearing up and getting ready to take your order! We’re excited to unveil some new summer menu items and bring back our classics and customer favourites!  You’ll want to try our incredible Tuna Poke Bowl, made with mouth-watering raw marinated tuna and buckwheat noodles. A perfect light summer treat! It’ll go great with our classic Nachos, topped with jalapenos and a generous serving of fresh salsa, guacamole, and sour cream. The crowd favourite right now are the Fish Tacos, made with cajun-spiced snapper, salsa, guacamole, and cilantro! We highly recommend giving it a try! And of course, our perennial crowd pleaser, Bridges’ world-famous Fish and Chips is always a fabulous choice! We’ve got the best seafood and fish menu around so you really can’t go wrong with whatever you choose!
