Best Patios In Victoria BC for 2015

Summer has been in full effect almost since the beginning of May here in Victoria. We’ve had a unbelievable stretch of weather that looks like it will continue into September.

The weather has surely got you searching to find out what the best patios in Victoria BC for 2015 are. You see last year we published a post on the best patios. But they are a couple of patios that we didn’t mention that opened late last summer. We felt the need to mention them because you may or may not know about them. You could be a local who doesn’t get downtown much or a visitor looking for a great place to enjoy the sun, views, food and drink.

Lure Restaurant

Lure actually opened in the early summer of 2014 but we never got a chance to check it out. That was until early this June. Sure glad we did.

It arguably has the best view of the inner harbour as you face The Empress, Parliament Buildings and the beautiful massive yachts that dock at the harbour. A couple of problems we found were that drinks were quite expensive and that it can get windy. So bring warm clothes no matter what and don’t plan to stay for too many cocktails.

They’ve got normal table seating but also couches that surround a nice natural gas fire pit. It really is something similar to what you’d see in a big city.

Steamship Grill

Another patio that opened early last summer that we never had chance to check out was the Steamship Grill. It faces out towards the Songhees area and Lure’s patio infact. What this means is that it get’s the sunsets.

We had a meal and a couple of drinks while there. The food was ok but nothing special and the drink prices were decent. It can get cold on this patio but one nice touch is they provide blankets which you can see in the photo below.

Summer nights and sunsets on the patio. #summer #victoriabc #patiotime #views #harbourfront #explorebc #innerharbour
