Vancouver’s Colony bar opening Northwoods outpost in North Van


A third Colony location will launch in Metro Vancouver soon. The Blueprint-operated casual bar and restaurant will open Monday, September 17, 2018 on the North Shore in Northwoods Village.

Colony Northwoods is 4,000 square feet with seating for 130 patrons. Done in a chalet-style, the bar-restaurant will also offer a large year-round patio with seating for another 130 people.

On tap, 20 rotating beer selections, focusing on local craft brewers from our own brew-loving province.

The food menu was created by Executive Chef Karen Lyons, who recently joined Blueprint, to oversee the Bar and Restaurant’s food program. Customers will find eats focusing on local ingredients for the health-conscious West Coast palate.

“We feel we have created a unique space for the North Shore community to refuel after a long hike or bike ride, catch the big game, enjoy a great casual meal and connect with friends and family,” says Bill Kerasiotis, Principal at Blueprint, via media release.

Colony Northwoods is located at 2100 Dollarton Highway in North Vancouver, and will be open Monday through Friday from 11:30 am to midnight, and weekends from 10 am to midnight.
