Parq Vancouver: What To Know Before You Go

Parq Vancouver

After a long period of high anticipation, Parq Vancouver opens its doors for its grand opening celebration.

Around 11pm on Friday, September 29th, the establishment will have a celebratory “first roll of the dice” in the casino.

With 75 gaming tables, 600 slot machines, a poker room and 11 exclusive salons for private games, the Casino is sure to impress. Also, floor-to-ceiling windows promise bountiful amounts of natural light will enter the casino, making for a more comfortable experience. It will also have two very exquisite hotels.

There are a couple of things to note before heading to the venue, however.

First, Parq Vancouver is holding its opening celebration tomorrow, but don’t depend on being able to stay overnight at either of the attached hotels. Rooms won’t be available for reservation until late October, so you’ll need alternative plans.


Second, if you are planning to eat while you enjoy your time at Parq, you should familiarize yourself with the options beforehand. With so many incredible options to choose from, it would be a shame to miss out on a favorite delicacy because you didn’t know what was available.
