Vibrant streetscapes and busy patios are filling the summer with fun, and now everyone in Vancouver can easily find out where to enjoy a patio late into a summer evening.

We've released a map of the nearly 170 establishments with extended patio hours – some of them open as late as 1:00am – to help night owls find a spot to enjoy public space late into the evening.

About extended patio hours

This extended time builds on the success of previous years which saw approximately 200 applications approved to keep restaurant patios open later than usual.

In 2013, we launched a Patio Hours Extension Pilot Program allowing approved restaurants to serve patio customers until 12:00 midnight daily to enhance the patio experience for customers and enliven Vancouver’s streets.

In 2014, the pilot program increased due to uptake and interest, and restaurants were allowed to extend their patio hours until 1:00am.

Establishments with good track records are welcome to once again invite their patrons to enjoy Vancouver’s fresh air later into the evening.

How to apply for extended patio hours

Currently, there are more than 300 patios around the city that are eligible for the extension. 

Businesses are required to have:

  • Up-to-date insurance 
  • All fees paid in full
  • No patio noise complaints on file in the last 12 months

Your business is subject to the conditions of your liquor permit.
