Dining out just got more decadent with the official opening of The Victor in the city’s newest destination, Parq Vancouver. Parq’s opening has marked a peak in Vancouver’s luxury nightlife scene, and the opening of the Victor has only solidified Parq as Vancouver’s prime entertainment hot spot. Inspired by the Pacific Northwest region, with the restaurant’s approachable menu effortlessly weaves together contemporary and classic style fare paired with a curated wine, craft beer and cocktail program. The Victor celebrates quality dining as an everyday event. The restaurant offers an elevated dining experience on the sixth floor of the DOUGLAS, accessible through the lush outdoor park and showcasing stunning views of BC Place Stadium and Vancouver’s skyline.
With inspiration drawn from the reign of Queen Victoria. Paying homage to the adage “To the victor belongs the spoils,” the room immerses guests in a rich and intimate décor, incorporating earthy tones, commanding oak tables and banquets reminiscent of the green leather benches seen in London’s chamber of the House of Commons.
The private room adjoining the wine cellar is perfect for special events. In the Spring, those seeking full immersion in nature can lounge on the elegant patio leading out to the park.
The wine list at The Victor is comprised of quality bottles sourced from around the globe, with a focus on BC, California and regions of France. This extensive selection is supplemented by one of Canada’s largest wine Enomatics; a preservation system that allows for high-end wines to be served by the glass. Craft beer selections extend a special nod to local breweries with Steamworks, 33 Acres and Postmark Brewing on the menu. Cocktail aficionados will delight in adventurous drinks separated into the categories of ‘Diplomacy’ (light and delicate) and ‘Campaign’ (strong and battle-ready), including the signature Emperor’s Sour and the Smoke and Oak house martini.
“The Victor showcases the best elements of Vancouver and the Pacific Northwest while offering an accessible, playful and exploratory dining experience for every guest,” says Grant Nelson, general manager. “Our goal is to ensure each diner receives a personalized experience tailored to their tastes, and departs with a feeling of genuine enjoyment of their experience and the space.”
The Victor is open for dinner nightly from 5:00pm to 10:30pm (11:00pm on Friday and Saturday). Entrée prices range from $18 to $79. Parq Vancouver’s eclectic assortment of restaurants and lounges also include BC Kitchen, Honey Salt, 1886, MRKT East, D/6, Lotus Whiskey/Tea Lounge and Centre Bar which debuted during the resort’s September 2017 opening.
