OPUS Hotel gives Vancouver some local love with customized private bars


Vancouver, BC (March 6, 2017) – Award-winning boutique OPUS Hotel Vancouver celebrates its love of the local with the launch of its new Local’s Mini Bar selection this week. Featuring locally made and sourced products, the new mini bars reflect the Yaletown hotel’s fresh approach to welcoming guests to the city.

“We love Vancouver and take any opportunity to promote the city and what it has to offer to our guests,” says Nicholas Gandossi, GM of OPUS Hotel. “Our new local curated minibars bring some of our favourite products within easy reach for guests to enjoy in the comfort of their own rooms. We encourage guests to meet the makers during their time exploring our city.”

Check in and tuck into local brews and chews from Vancouver, or take some home as a memento of the stay. Local options include the Vancouver-made Frost Bites Fun Ginger Syrup or sit back and sip West Coast Pale Ale from Granville Island Brewing, made in small batches on Granville Island.
