Tis the season for holiday parties, large family dinners, and big nights out. Check out these Vancouver restaurants and hotels that are offering up some exciting menus and events all in the name of Christmas.

Fancy a festive cocktail? Botanist tastemakers at Fairmont Pacific Rim are stirring up a collection of winter-inspired craft cocktails. The Lobby Lounge, located on the first floor of the hotel, is also serving up a holiday cocktail list that brings festive cheer along with a lineup of daily live music and a menu of festive libations available until December 31, 2019.

If Christmas Eve dinner at home is a daunting task, head to the Fairmont Waterfront instead for an evening of live music and a three-course dinner with festive favorites complete with sweet treats. The dinner is served from 5:30 PM for $109 a person.

It’s the end of a decade, and there’s no better way to celebrate than at a restaurant that does all the cooking and bartending for you. Ancora Waterfront Dining and Patio will flip the calendar in its signature style when it hosts festive New Year’s Eve dinner services featuring live entertainment in its Ambleside and False Creek locations on Tuesday, December 31.

If elegant brunch is how you like to celebrate the holidays, Fairmont Pacific Rim’s Botanist offers a prix fixe brunch menu beginning with a glass of sparkling wine upon arrival and a festive punch cocktail for $76 per person from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Fairmont Hotel Vancouver’s Christmas Brunch Buffet in Notch8 will include a chef attended carving station, seafood, and an array of holiday desserts.

For those avoiding the at home hosting of a holiday lunch, Ristorante Di Beppe will be serving up some authentic Italian favorites for their December lunch service. Head to the eatery weekdays throughout December from 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM to indulge in classics like meatballs ‘di beppe’, mozzarella di bufala pizza, and pasta di Pomodoro.

Looking to celebrate the 2010’s with a blast from the past? Pourhouse is throwing a ‘Roaring Twenties’ New Years Eve Bash Tuesday, December 31 from 10:00 PM to 1:00 AM. Partygoers are encouraged to break out their best costumes and go back by a century to December 31, 1919, the last high-spirited, freewheeling night before Prohibition came into effect across the United States in 1920.

Happy Holidays!
