Vancouver’s Temporary Patios, Mapped

This map points to every temporary patio that has so far been approved (and that Scout has data for in its geo-system). Keep in mind that not all of them have been built yet! If you don’t see your favourite spot listed, please let us know and we’ll do our best to include it.

Patio season is upon us, but so is a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic. Despite our yearnings to sip, sup and safely socialize al fresco, so many of Vancouver’s restaurants, cafes and breweries were never originally equipped with the outdoor spaces that could now prove so key to their survival. Thankfully, the City’s Temporary Expedited Patio Program (TEPP) permits qualified establishments to operate nonpermanent patios until October 31st, thereby allowing for greater seating capacity, safer dining experiences and, for many, hope that their business will survive this calamity.

  1. Missing Templeton’s temporary patio – only three tables, but it’s great!

  2. Can you update this to reflect those with outdoor heaters and rain shelter? Looking to continue supporting local restaurants through the fall and winter and hoping to stay warm and dry while doing so! Thanks for putting this together!
