The Veranda at The Fairmont Empress has opened for another season. The venerable grand hotel has always held a prime location on Victoria’s waterfront, overlooking the great lawn and out to the Inner Harbour. The Veranda, located under the “Empress” sign at the old front door of the hotel, is the ideal spot to leisurely spend a summer afternoon sipping a classic cocktail like the Empress 1908.
Ferries and boats come and go while the tourists and locals stroll The Causeway, double-decker tour buses wait alongside the lawn waiting to take visitors to Victoria’s attractions, watch it all from your chair in the sun under the ivy covered arches.
The Veranda isn’t just for cocktails, The Fairmont Empress Chefs have created a fine “farm to fork” menu to satisfy your desire for an afternoon nibble or evening meal. Special occasions like Canada Day add to the appeal of The Veranda with other events happening throughout the season. No matter what your occasion, make The Veranda a destination on your next visit to Victoria.
The Veranda is open from 11:30am to dusk or chilly; – whichever comes first. The Veranda provides heaters, wraps and sun shades for your enjoyment. The Veranda offeres bistro style seating and is first come, first serve; no reservations required.
