The Shipyards in North Vancouver is about to get a lot more fun with an extended outdoor dining coming this summer.

Vancouver-based café chain Artigiano has partnered with Salty’s Lobster Shack and The Botanist to turn their North Vancouver Shipyards location into a major patio for the entire month of July.

Artigiano has already extended their patio and visitors will get to enjoy an extended menu of delicious food and drinks.


The waterfront cafe will host the extended patio session each Thursday in July (July 8, 15, 22 & 29) from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The collaboration is described as a “mecca for patio fun by bookending the best of the Northern Atlantic and shipping it West to Vancouver Harbour.”

Eat, Drink & Enjoy

As a result of the partnership, the cafe will be offering its signature coffee drinks but also be able to serve cocktails made by The Botanist which is a Scottish distillery known for premium gin.

Their cocktails will include tantalizing flavours such as: Remy Rosé Sangria, a Cointreau Spritz with blueberries, and Botanist & Tonic with grapefruit.

This partnership is one that combines the Pacific with the Atlantic and we are happy they are uniting.

While eating and clanging your beverages, it’s always a great option to just sit back and enjoy the view at the Shipyards.
