The Players Chophouse
Restaurant & Lounge
Set between two entertainment venues at the end of famed Robson Street, Points West Hospitality Group and its partners opened their fifth restaurant venture, The Players Chophouse, Bar & Lounge, in July 2007.
The Players Chophouse, Bar & Lounge entices guests to come and experience an atmosphere best described as “B.C.’s West Coast with a flavour of San Francisco flare” explains Rob Ward, President of Points West Hospitality Group. “We want our guests to enjoy the best the West Coast has to offer while also providing the perfect venue to celebrate a night out, to entertain clients, or to stop in before or after concerts, sporting and entertainment events.”
Soaring ceilings, natural and elegantly subtle lighting, a lounge and bar with buttery leather booths, and elegant hardwood, invites guests to join us in casual elegance. In addition, the patio is the ideal place to dine outdoors. With warm toned Teak tables and cushioned wrought iron chairs, guests feel satisfied and relaxed.
The informal, inviting atmosphere is the backdrop to a menu boasting perfectly grilled, unique cuts of meat, prime dry aged beef and the freshest west coast seafood available, with an extensive and well paired wine list, all served alongside innovative and traditional accompaniments.
