The Best Martini on the Coast.

Fairmont Empress is closed for scheduled mechanical upgrades and will reopen April 1, 2021. We look forward to welcoming you then. The scene is nothing less than roaring at this 21st century-chic hot spot set in our restored 100-year-old-plus landmark. Clink upstart cocktails like the Q1908 at the oversized white quartzite bar under Andy Warhol-worthy pop art starring the Queen. Curvy modern lounge chairs set off original stained-glass windows, ornate antique detailing and dark hunt club-era woods, juxtaposed with bold splashes of orchid and free-form pendant lighting. Watch the paddlers glide by on the water and let the conversation flow over microbrews, 500 labels of global vintages curated by resident sommeliers and our Empress branded indigo-blue gin. The bar hosts live music nightly. Both the harbour views and people-watching are superb.
