Grain Tasting Bar is the latest main lobby attraction at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver that combines rustic and contemporary elements with chic ambiance. Local craft beer specials on game nights, wood-fired pizzas, and featured BC growers, distillers, and brewers make this new hot spot shine.

Lunch menu features are grouped by “lettuce” and “bread” categories and include dishes like Gelderman Farms Pork & Crispy Kale Salad, Seared Vancouver Island Albacore Tuna Salad, along with sandwiches like Roasted Pork, Little Farms Chicken, Skuna Bay Salmon, and more.
