– Experience Wine with Us –
Burnaby, BC, August 11, 2016 – Gateway Casinos & Entertainment (“Gateway”) is thrilled to open the redesigned Alpina Wine Bar at Grand Villa Casino in Burnaby, a $1 Million renovation that has transformed this space into a sleek modern lounge.
With a design inspiration built from nature, Alpina Wine Bar is located amidst the energy and excitement of the casino floor and set against the backdrop of the North Shore Mountains, featuring carefully selected wines from all of the world’s major grape-growing regions. Each selection is driven by balance – quality, value and style.
Alpina features famous producers, local favourites, hard-to-get cult wines and a few little-known gems. If wine is not your preference you can indulge in a variety of handcrafted cocktails and an eclectic selection of domestic, import and craft brews. All of which are complimented by a delicious array of seasonally inspired small plates and meats and cheeses.
“We envisioned a space that would be both modern and inviting to everyone; Those new to the experience and wine aficionados alike. I believe we have absolutely delivered on this vision and more. ” – Rob Ward, Vice President, Operations, Gateway Casinos & Entertainment.
Alpina was originally launched as part of the Grand Villa Casino when it opened in 2008. However, it came time to update the space with a great view and a modernized theme. The goal of the renovation was to truly define a space for those guests looking for a more intimate setting to enjoy a wonderful glass of wine and a small meal with friends.
The new Alpina Wine Bar will open to the public on Thursday, August 11, 2016 at 8pm.
Starting August 12, 2016 regular business hours will be open daily from 4pm – Monday to Wednesday and from 12pm – Thursday to Sunday.
