Four Seasons Hotel Wine Dinner and Chartwell Private Room Announcement

Mar 18, 2008

By Catherine "Cat" Barr

The North Shore Outlook is delivered to over 60,000 homes in Canada's wealthiest communities, North Vancouver and West Vancouver, every Thursday - over 60,000 issues in print.


It's a season of change at the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Vancouver - but like a fine wine, it simply gets better with time. Last week, the hotel hosted a $350 plate dinner with some of the world's leaing wine families. This week, it was the announcement of the closure of Chartwell - Vancouver's power lunch and dinner spot. However, do not fret, because Chartwell is now a private dining room available for special occasion bookings for breakfast, lunch, dinner, weddings and more. The opening of Yew restaurant lounge earlier this year means that the rich and famous from the North Shore and beyond still flock to their doors and a new lobby and refurbished guest rooms are soon on their way.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
