Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar has moved into Waterfront Station, adjacent to sister property Steamworks. With an impressive BC beer selection, sunny patio, and poutine that looks to-die-for, it’s a hot new pub worth checking out.

Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar

Inside Rogue there is elaborate wood decor, vaulted ceilings, and one massive dining room. The food menu itself is eclectic, offering everything from mini corn dogs to Korean short ribs and baba ghanoush. Entrees from lobster mac n’ cheese to steak of salmon start at about $14.99.

    26. Lauren says:

      Yaletown Brewing has a great patio.

    27. Nat says:

      Royal Vancouver Yacht Club patio. But since it is not totally accessible, second is Local at Kits.

    28. Erin says:

      Steamworks and the Pirate Bar (Burrard Bridge Marine Bar and & Grill)

    29. Renn says:

      I like the patio at the Boathouse on English Bay.

    30. sue says:

      After a hard days work & B4 boarding the train, Ayza & I sat here shared a pitcher of White Ale and watched the great looking food go by & jug after jug of Sangria…must go back to give this a try

    31. Monica says:

      I like Saltaire’s roof top patio in West Vancouver.

    32. Max says:

      My favorite patio in Vancouver (only been there once) is at the Seasons in the Park restaurant in Queen Elizabeth park. Awesome friggin’ view of Downtown.

    33. James says:

      Love my backyard patio! A sunny day, couple of beers, and a few friends define my summer.

      Failing that, Steamworks (and Rogue Kitchen, too) has an amazing patio, same with the Spaghetti Factory!

    34. Lisa says:

      I love the Chill Winston patio best, but I like the food at the Rogue Kitchen better! Love the poutine!

    35. Lima says:

      My patio at home is pretty stellar – I love the patio at Lift too. They have these awesome bonfire pits too in case it gets chilly. Gorgeous!

      The Keg in Yaletown also has a stellar rooftop. Yay more patios in Vancouver!

    36. Marilyn says:

      We’ve had some good times on the rooftop patio at Red Robins on Thurlow at Robson. Also the Boathouse, both in kits, and at English Bay.

    37. The Boat House! You can’t beat that view and the seafood is fantastic. A pint of Killer Whale Ale doesn’t hurt either.

    38. Kate says:

      I like the rooftop patio at the Kingston – i’m partial to an off-road patio experience (imagine if we had patio-squares like in Europe.. or even Ottawa?).

      I’ll keep my favourite patio to myself though :)

    39. Ryan says:

      My patio!!! Ok, second place is the Vancouver Yacht Club, imho!

    40. Rob says:

      Local (the old Malone’s in Kits) is the oldie, but a goodie. Although I was impressed with Joey’s on Broadway (near Granville) with the enclosed rooftop patio.

    41. incredimike says:

      Havana on Commercial! Cheap Mojitos and other girly drinks!

    42. Sebastian says:

      My favourite burger, patio and staff are all at The Local in Kits…

    43. Karlie says:

      I love The Mill in Coal Harbour. Float planes, water park and a view of the North Shore. Doesn’t get much better then that!

    44. MC says:

      Definately THE KEG in Yaletown.
      I think it was voted “best patio” in Playboy Magazine!

    45. Rob says:

      Oh, and the Chicken Burger at Rogue is like a McChicken on steroids. Flavor steroids, not the bad kind. It’s awesome.

    46. Karen says:

      I love the small patio at the side of the Three Lions Cafe. Always a seat but always people on it too. It sits on Ontario Street, which divides the city (in more ways than one) but it seem to divide the quirky and the “normal” so the people watching is always fabulous. Great staff complements this space…

    47. Jeff says:

      Sounds like a nice place with good food. Would love to check it out.

    48. Diane says:

      Joe Fortes definitely has the prettiest patio and it’s really nice that it’s away from traffic.

    49. Tanis says:

      I haven’t been on many patios in Vancouver, just the Local.

      Thanks for the great giveaway!

      Local in Kits…

    53. Cam says:

      The Boathouse in English Bay

    54. Chris says:

      Can’t really beat the Local right off kits beach after a nice day of soaking in the sun.

    55. Jenn G. says:

      Private patio: Jericho Tennis Club

      Not private but surrounded by so many expensive yachts it almost feels that way: Dockside Brewing at GI

      Good, but sit away from the fence if you don’t want people asking you for change every 5 minutes: Chill Winston

      Awesome patio but meh beer selection: Kingston

      Best patio ever: it’s tiki, it’s off Main, it’s open to anyone over 19, and that’s all you get. Can’t let the word spread too far.

    56. Kathy says:

      Yum! Sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon

    57. Tracy says:

      Local in Kits!

    64. Jeff says:

    66. lori says:

      Chill Winston. Good luck to me!

    67. Duncan says:

      Jimmy’s by Library Square. Great pub, great people!

    82. Veronica says:

      Gotta agree with the Mill on the waterfront… nothing beats sitting back and watching the float planes come in/take off.

    83. Shawn Rapaz says:

      Sounds like a perfect date for my girlfriend and I. Love to win.

    84. Sharon says:

      I love the vibe on the Steamworks patio.

    104. Kevin says:

      Boathouse in English Bay

    105. jeff pierce says:

      This would be great. HST has annoyed me so we dont’ eat out as much.

    106. Bernice Balcaen says:

      Be nice to have a night out at a place that isn’t just a fast-food outlet. Not that I have anything against fast-food (I eat it too) but a change would be welcome – just to get out and dress up a bit & enjoy a quiet/relaxed meal.

    113. KissSpeedDating says:

      The Keg Rooftop in Yaletown hands-down!!

      I would love to try this pub!

    157. Bonnie says:

      Seasons in the Park — gorgeous!

    158. Jamie says:

      Jerico Yacht Club. The Mill. Sandbar.

    159. slif says:

      Crave on Main/King Ed. A great patio gives you everything you expect from an indoor dining experience (good food, good service, and the ability to enjoy both in a nice environment, free from being smacked in the face by passing buses, bussers, tourists and whatever else) – only outdoors.

      Every single one suggested thus far in the comments are for people who want to be seen by others and quite honestly douche it up.

      Crave on Main has a REAR patio that is private from the outside world, and you can relax and bask in the peace and quiet.

      While the Keg in Yaletown also has a d*mn nice elevated patio, I would rate Crave’s food offerings to be higher… and there’s a lot more free parking (as opposed to none).

    160. Akemi says:

      During the summer, Local is my favourite patio!

    161. angie says:

      Favorite patio is at the Granville Island Hotel – it’s underrated.

      Looks interesting. Never been, but I love Steamworks! Look forward to checking it out.

    163. Darko says:

      Just moved to the city so I don’t have a fave yet!

    164. Alyssa says:

      Also have to say the Local!

    165. Teresa says:

      The patios at all the yaletown restaurants are nice!

    166. […] blogs in Vancouver, besides Kitsilano.ca of course, is Miss 604. Recently Miss 604 posted a blog where she asked Vancouverites “what is your favourite patio in Vancouver?” As I scanned the over […]

    167. Janet says:

    168. cindy quach says:
