The Lobby Lounge at The Fairmont Pacific Rim
The Lobby Lounge at The Fairmont Pacific Rim A perfect meeting place from morning til midnight, the Lobby Lounge's floor-to-ceiling fireplace and cozy leather chairs call out to sit down and relax. In the morning, custom-roasted coffee is accompanied with lollipops to stir in flavours of dark chocolate and vanilla bean and can be savored with a bakery-fresh pastry while people watching. The lunch menu features a variety of paninis, asian noodle bowls, local oysters and fresh flavorful salads. However, the trademark could very well be the specially designed Art Deco trolley used to serve afternoon artisan teas and tableside cocktails. A splash of dry ice adds drama to martinis, and the raw bar is an appetizing complement with its offerings of chilled seafood tower, oysters, sushi and sashimi. The signature menu item is a 24-hour braised beef short rib poutine with hand cut fries and a house-made thyme curd. Jazz is served nightly, Monday through Saturday, and Sunday afternoons. Fairmont has established several exciting new partnerships, including one with EMI Canada and together some outstanding entertainment will be available as part of our ongoing Fairmont Fridays - a great way to wrap up the week over cocktails and contemporary live music. Commanding centre stage in the lobby, you can't miss our Fazioli piano! Known as the Ferrari in the world of pianos the crme de la crme of ivory-ticklers, our Fazioli traveled first-class from hometown Sacile, located just 35-miles north of Venice, Italy to its new home. The piano of choice for many professional musicians, including Herbie Hancock, a Fazioli is reputed to be the best and most costly in the world. Ours cost $225,000 and has a cutout with a wood inlay that echoes the 150-long sculpture made by local origami master, Joseph Wu that soars above it.
