Last Minute Vancouver New Year’s Suggestions

No Vancouver New Year’s Plans Yet? Check Out These Spots

How have y’all been through the holidays? I’ve found it hard to come back to Vancouver after having so much going on in Kelowna and have been a bit down, and now have a cold! I’ll rally though as I always do, but we still haven’t decided on what, if anything, to do for New Year’s.  I’ve been doing a bit of research and here’s some suggestions for Vancouver New Year’s for you. All the best for 2018! Let’s rock this year!



Spend New Year’s Eve enjoying a four-course menu prepared exclusively for the occasion. Chef Ian McHale’s comforting creations are sure to send you into the New Year with a happy heart and a full belly. Seatings throughout the evening starting at 5:00 pm, giving guests the option of dining early or late. The bar will stay open until 1:00 am for those wishing to ring in 2018 with a toast.

Tickets to this exclusive New Year’s Eve dinner service are available for $89 per person plus tax and gratuity. Guests can also enjoy an eclectic lineup of Old- and New-World wine pairings selected by Wildebeest Wine Director Justin Everett for an additional $48 (3 oz.) or $64 (5 oz.) per person. Please make your dinner reservation before purchasing your ticket online.

Admission by general cover charge is available, but why not reserve a table and pop the cork on a bottle of premium vintage champagne of your choice?
