      As the patio season begins to kick-off, city-dwellers will be happy to know a popular downtown Vancouver rooftop destination has officially reopened.

      Reflections: The Garden Terrace at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia is back in business for the season, offering a bit of greenery among concrete towers.

      The rooftop lounge and bar features private cabanas, comfortable seats, and infinity water features that were introduced after a redesign in 2016.

      Several new Mediterranean-style dishes are available, including bruschetta, charred Catalan octopus, burrata pizza, and hummus with tahini and torn bread. Other share-plates such as summer-fried buttermilk chicken, cheese-and-charcuterie platter, and seared ahi tuna can be found on the menu.

      Share-plates like fried chicken are served here.

      If guests have a bigger appetite, full-sized entrees like home-made cavatelli, B.C. wild halibut, and Tomahawk steak are also served.

      Dessert options include revani (with semolina sponge, lemon curd, and pine-nut crumble) and almond panna cotta (with almond brittle and strawberries), which can satisfy sweettooths.

      This rooftop spot also has a couple of new summer cocktails, which range from the Sicilian Mule (Roca Patron Silver, Amaro Montenegro, lime, angostura, and ginger beer) to Ibiza Colada (Bacardi Maestro rum, pineapple pureé, condensed mlk, cacao beans, and PX sherry).

      Classic libations like the Hotel Georgia circa 1951 (Tanqueray London dry gin, lemon, egg white, orgeat, and nutmeg), Moscow Mule, Mint Julep, and sangria is also available. Guests will also find a selection of beer, red and white wine, and non-alcoholic beverages.

      Reflections: The Garden Terrace is open daily from 4 to 11 p.m., and will open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. starting on April 20.

      This outdoor patio will be a hot spot for those who live or work in the downtown core.
