New Restaurant ‘Beehive Kitchen & Bar’ to Launch in Kitsilano This Summer

A new casual Canadian restaurant called Beehive Kitchen & Bar will soon replace the Oakwood Canadian Bistro at 2741 W 4th Ave. I took a quick look inside the space yesterday and was told that renovations were only just beginning. The frontage has already been given a complete makeover with new branding prominently displayed. Details at this point are scarce but the expectation is that Beehive will open before the end of summer.

The Oakwood, recently closed after an 8-year run, will be missed. More details soon.

  1. That’s quite the indictment considering it hasn’t been built yet. How do you think the Canucks are going to do next year?

  2. Can confirm, I walk past everyday, the exterior changes are tacky. Everyone in the neighborhood comments on how terrible it looks.

  3. I had the opportunity to have a sneak peak this week! Going to absolutely fantastic, the Team in place is amazing. Exciting addition to a great location.
