Experience a fresh look at Cure Lounge & Patio at Nita Lake Lodge, which has revamped its space with splashes of bright colour and a contemporary, stripped-back, Canadiana-cabin style. “We had architects Scott & Scott work with our interior designer, Carolyn Scholz, and they had a subtle and modern vision to create an open-concept space,” said Nicole Haupt, marketing and communications manager. The rustic-chic coziness is defined by understated white and grey tones; natural oak tables and a silver fox granite bar top contribute to a brighter ambience.
“Nita Drink?” To complement the update, Cure’s Bar Manager Rhiannon Csordas has created four delicious and innovative craft cocktail themes, including “From the Garden,” “Smoke and Spice on Ice,” “Modernist” and “Around the World.” “The beautiful part of having a bar renovation is the opportunity that comes with it. I decided that if we are elevating the beauty of our space for guests to enjoy then we should also be elevating the products we are offering,” says Csordas. “And I came up with the concept of a ‘themed’ cocktail menu to offer guests.”
Harvesting produce from their own rooftop garden, the fruit-based cocktail “Refresh” uses fresh strawberries muddled with barrel-aged gin, basil, lemon, and peppercorn mixed with green tea and served over ice. For those who crave stronger flavours, savour the “Ginger Spice” cocktail with bourbon whiskey and curry-turmeric syrup, with the kick of muddled ginger and cayenne, mellowed with coconut milk.
In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, Cure will feature specialty cocktails, whisky and beer flights, and celebratory menu items only offered this summer. For a taste of tradition with a twist, try the poutine, which combines farm-fresh chicken, French fries, cheese curds and light gravy.
Whether Whistler’s summer days are cool or warm, Cure has the perfect spot for you. Cozy up to their toasty fireplace central to the lounge, or head to the patio and luxuriate in the stunning lakeside views of clear waters reflecting Whistler’s snowcapped peaks.
