A Sneak Peak at the Experience
Treat yourselves to a relaxing spa treatment
There’s nothing a trip to the spa can’t fix. Unplug and enjoy a relaxing treatment at the Spa by JW. There are several treatments to choose from, including a stone massage, body wrap, brightening facial, foot reflexology and their signature manicure. After your treatment, you can sit back and relax with a cup of tea and light snacks while taking in sweeping views of Science World and False Creek.
Unwind at the aqua lounge
Further unwind by taking a stroll to the aqua lounge, which is mere steps away from the spa. The scenic rooftop lounge features a hydrotherapy tub, yoga space and chaise lounges surrounded by the beauty of BC Place and the Vancouver skyline. After being quiet at the spa, this is a great place to catch up.
Pre-drink at one of the bars on-site
There are several must-try restaurant and bars at Parq, we suggest grabbing a drink or two at Centre Bar to kick off the night. It gets its name by being in the middle of all the action. It serves as the social hub of the second-floor casino. They’ve got it all from whisky and beer to wine and bubbly. Or try one of their creative cocktails, like the Fruit Roll Up (2 oz. Ciroc Red Berry, pineapple and cranberry juice and simple syrup). All decked out with 4K televisions, it’s also a popular spot to watch your favourite sporting event.
Sports fans can also head to BC Kitchen if they are planning on going to a BC Lions game to take advantage of 15% off their bill. They just have to present their BC Lions game day ticket to score the deal.
Dress up and go for a fancy dinner
When it comes to having a memorable girls night out on the town, look no further than The Victor. Wine and dine at this beloved rooftop restaurant with BC Place as the ultimate backdrop. Grab a seat on the bustling patio or nab a cozy spot inside.
The Victor is a destination all in itself, with an abundance of steak and seafood offerings. It even has its own sushi bar in the middle of the restaurant, creating beautiful sushi and sashimi dishes as well as innovative rolls. Make sure to save room for dessert, this spot has a plethora of options, most notably their creme brulee donuts topped off with maple cotton candy and vanilla custard. If you happen to be going to The Victor on a Wednesday night, you’ll also be treated to some live music.
Hit up another bar post-dinner
Enjoy some post-drink cocktails at noneother than D6 Bar & Lounge. The iconic bar is a must when visiting Parq. The patio is tucked right under BC Place, making it the perfect place to take in spectacular views of the city with a drink in hand. Sip on a Sicilian Spritz, Ruby Sangria or Emperor’s Sour (just to name a few). They have several wine and beer options available as well. Guests will also be able to discover a mysterious bookcase that when pushed, leads to a hidden lounge.
Check out the casino
Test your luck by heading to the casino to play some table games or slot machines. The casino has it all, whether you want to play blackjack, baccarat, ruyi or blazing 7s. There are also penny, 5 cent, a quarter and a dollar slot machines on both levels two and three. For more high-stakes action, there are high limit salons and slots offering private gaming with an exclusive food and drink menu and a private lounge.
Kick back in your luxurious suite for the night
JW Marriott Parq Vancouver is the epitome of luxury. It features studio, guest rooms and larger suites that offer a bird’s-eye-view of the city. You’ll sleep soundly in one of their lavish beds with super soft sheets and fluffy pillows. Rooms are also equipped with air conditioning, a TV, WiFi and a desk area just in case you need to get a couple of things done during your stay. If you don’t feel leaving the room and you get a craving for a late-night snack, there’s always room service.
Cure that hangover with a hearty brunch in the morning
The best way to cure a hangover is by indulging in a hearty brunch (after a bit of a sleep in of course). Head over to Honey Salt for a delicious meal to get your day started off on the right foot. The charming eatery has plenty of breakfast and brunch offerings, including buttermilk pancakes, eggs benny, avocado toast and an egg white frittata. Get caffeinated with a cappuccino, espresso, latte or their signature cold brew. Honey Salt also offers smoothies and a juice bar to feel good as new (try their green goddess or citrus glow).
