On The Rocks Bar & Lounge

If you're dining at The Pointe Restaurant, you might plan to arrive a half an hour early to enjoy a classic cocktail, glass of wine or flight of scotches at our On the Rocks Bar and Lounge. Here we feature an excellent selection of Pacific Northwest wines, a quality range of classic ports and one of B.C.'s largest selection of single-malt scotches.

Enjoying an invigorating afternoon walk on Chesterman Beach during storm season? Come into On The Rocks Bar and Lounge to warm up with a hot toddy and comforting bowl of fresh chowder.
