For travelers with cabin fever who are looking for a breath of fresh air, try shaking things up this spring with some outdoor dining at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. With a collection of over 65 luxury properties around the globe, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts offer more than 25 outdoor restaurants, bars and lounges in the mountains, on the beach, in the gardens, the city, or by the sea.
One option for urban al fresco dining is the seasonal patio at The Fairmont Copley Plaza’s OAK Long Bar + Kitchen. Overlooking Copley Square and architectural landmarks such as the Boston Public Library, and Trinity Church, the Oak Long Bar + Kitchen features American cuisine with a focus on local ingredients and hand crafted cocktails.
For those looking for something less local and more remote, the Fairmont recommends the Pool Bar at Fairmont Mara Safari Club. Located in the heart of Kenya’s savannah, guests can unwind with a drink while taking in views of the surrounding hippo- and crocodile-filled Mara River. The bar serves local drinks including the ‘Dawa’ cocktail.
Back in the states, a balance of city and nature can be found in the courtyard at the Fairmont Washington, D.C. Georgetown, which has a variety of plants, trees, and flowers in its gardens. Romantically lit each night, The Courtyard Juniper Restaurant serves locally sourced cuisine, much of which is infused with honey from the hotel’s rooftop hives, such as the Honey Nut Goat Cheese Cheesecake with Port Reduction, and Candied Walnuts.
The Fairmont Banff Springs in the Canadian Rockies is celebrating its 125th Anniversary. The Waldhaus Pub overlooks the valley where the Spray and Bow River meet, while the Rundle Lounge overlooks the Fairholme Mountain Range. In honor of its anniversary, the hotel will serve its Fairmont Banff Springs 125th Signature Lager.
