Bute-Robson Plaza, Vancouver’s Secret Summer Destination

Bute-Robson Plaza has always been the perfect West End oasis to relax and enjoy a reprieve from the bustle of Robson Street. And now more than ever in our constantly evolving COVID sphere,  people are seeking outdoor spaces to safely re-connect with family and friends and to enhance personal wellness.

Now is the the perfect time for you and your bubble to discover or rediscover Bute-Robson Plaza. Enjoy live music every Friday and Saturday as part of our Bute Robson Beats program starting this weekend and wrapping up Labour Day weekend. Pack a picnic, or escape the kitchen and satisfy those take-out cravings, which now can be washed down with a refreshing cocktail.
