Profile Last Updated: April 27, 2009
Standing proudly in downtown Vancouver’s heritage district is the latest incarnation of Century house. The Building that was built to house a bank over a hundred years ago has been transformed into a luxurious restaurant and bar with a bit of Latin culture stirred in. Vaulted ceilings, Victorian chandeliers mix pleasantly with wood and suede touches as well as a few murals of Latin American revolutionaries.
Wine and Dine
The Menu boasts a good selection of classic Latin dishes such as tacos, tostadas and enchiladas, but is not afraid to branch out with various cuts of meat from the grill or dishes like B.C sockeye salmon and Lentil mushroom ragout. Be sure to complement your food with something from the extensive wine list or cocktail menu.
Or Drinks and Dancing
If your night doesn’t end with dinner, head up to the Heist Lounge for drinks. Century is one of the few places in Vancouver with a restaurant and a lounge under one roof. Check ahead for weekly events and add a bit of history and elegance to your nightlife crawl.
Parking: Meter parking on surrounding streets
Note: Ask about the private room made from this vintage building’s old vault.
