The City of Vancouver has so far announced that 72 restaurants around Vancouver will have their patio spaces open until 1 a.m.

“Vancouver’s summer is off to an early start, and extended patio hours are making our city home to even more vibrant and lively streetscapes,” Mayor Gregor Robertson said in a press release. “There’s no better place to enjoy Vancouver’s famed local food culture than on a patio, and this program ensures that patios at establishments with strong neighbourhood track records can stay open later on Vancouver’s spectacular summer nights.”
