Fairmont Pacific Rim

1038 Canada Pl, Vancouver, BC V6C 0B9, Canada



Vancouver sets the scene for this gorgeous, botany-inspired restaurant. Located in the Fairmont Pacific Rim, this new cocktail bar and lab, champagne lounge, garden, and dining room is getting as much attention for its show-stopping presentation of food and drink as it is for its stunning atmosphere. Botanist offers all the things we look for in a destination #brunchbucketlist venue: gorgeous space, delicious food, crafty booze, awesome location.

A Food and Drink Mecca
If cinnamon pancakes, crab and avocado eggs Benedict and a glass of rosé sangria aren’t enough to get your brunch wishlist started, maybe we should just let you know that this spot serves one of their best cocktails in a bird-shaped glass. At this imaginative eating and drinking destination, expect the unexpected. From smoking mushroom rye served in a terrarium to charred octopus served on a sauce fashioned to mimic the texture of coral, you can bet your brunch at Botanist is going to be one for the memory banks.

The Beautiful Botanist
If the object of your bucket-list worthy brunch is simply to be surrounded by beauty, Botanist is all over that trick. Not only is the food presentation stunning, but the interior design by Ste. Marie Design is modern, risk-taking, feminine, and elegant all at once. Think blush pink hues complemented by lots of neutral blues, brassy elements, lively greenery, and subtle botanical pattern play. Authentic to its botany-based roots, there’s an adjacent garden with over 50 types of plant species on view. And if that’s not enough wow factor, there’s also a champagne lounge, and we all know brunch is never complete without bubbly.

A Place to Rest Your Eyes
Botanist is located inside the Fairmont Pacific Rim, just near the Vancouver Convention Center, Stanley Park and Granville Island Public Market. There’s no shortage of gorgeous, cozy rooms in this hotel and there’s a spa that’s totally worth a post-brunch treat to yourself. If you’re considering a group trek to the Canadian city, a splurge on the Prime Minister Suite and its adjoining rooms is totally bucket list worthy. Think private patios, views of the port, marble spa baths, and all the luxury you can handle.
