Next summer you’ll be able enjoy a cold beer or a glass of wine at Kits Beach.
On Monday, the Vancouver park board approved a concession strategy which includes a two-year pilot to allow liquor sales at the English Bay and Kitsilano Beach concessions from May to September.
The two-location pilot will allow the park board to assess the feasibility of offering alchohol at other concessions in the next three to five years.
The locations were chosen because the concessions already have restaurant operators — Cactus Club at English Bay and The Boathouse at Kitsilano Beach — best-suited to get the program up and running.
The pilot will be conducted beer-garden style. A section of beach at English Bay adjacent to the public walkway would be roped off, while a temporary small patio would be created outside the existing concession at Kitsilano Beach.
