Cure’s Re­fresh

Whistler Traveller Magazine - - WHAT WE LOVE NOW -

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.
