If you’ve ever wondered where the best patios in Whistler are, you’ve come to the right place! Whistler is known for its world-class adventures and sports scene, but Whistler locals also know how to relax at the end of a hard day of play. Whistler’s apres scene is filled with epic patios, culinary delights, fantastic cocktails and local brews. With so many to choose from, we’ve come up with a list of our favourites to help you plan the best Whistler vacation yet!
Voted as the best patio, year after year, we’d be amiss not to kick off our patio recommendations with Table Nineteen at the Nicklaus North Golf Club. Located just a short three-minute drive from Whistler Village, you can come as you are, relax, and enjoy the stunning views of the mountains and Green Lake surrounding the patio. Known for its refined culinary take, Table Nineteen also offers a sense of familiarity with its menu. Locally crafted brews, BC wines, and handcrafted cocktails will make you want to linger and stay awhile. Oh yeah, did we mention the views?
If you’re craving a local’s hangout and laid-back vibe, Stinky’s on The Stroll is the perfect place for you! Owner, Jeremy “Stinky” Peterson created the sports bar to bring the old-school Whistler ski-bum soul back to life. Our favourite menu recommendation is the tater tots, yes, you read that correctly. The mouth-watering snack is perfect after a big day of hiking in the Whistler alpine. Their tap line-up is long and local – so be sure to taste some of the local offerings! Oh yeah, and the patio is fantastic! It’s situated right on the Village Stroll, so it’s the perfect spot for people watching and seeing the hustle and bustle of the Whistler Village. This is truly a local’s hangout!
The Raven Room is a locally owned and operated establishment with an epic patio, food, and cocktails. Dress up or down (it’s Whistler!) and spend an evening at the Raven Room sampling some of the finest, locally sourced ingredients masterfully prepared in exquisite culinary delights. You’ll be able to take in stunning views of the mountains from their large patio or head inside to revel in the tastefully, yet comfortably decorated seating area. Their passionate bar team carefully selected spirits and techniques to craft innovative cocktails, accompanied by a thoughtful craft beer and low intervention wine list. The Raven Room is an experience so delightful, you might find yourself wanting to come back!
