Located on the site of Vancouver’s historic University and Quadra Clubs, Nightingale offers a truly authentic dining experience to nomadic travelers and locals alike. Featuring chef David Hawksworth's award-winning cuisine, Nightingale celebrates a menu made of simple seasonal dishes ­ — packed with natural flavours ­­— that focus on quality, excellence, and fun. Designed by Studio Munge, Nightingale’s multilevel interiors pay homage to British Columbia’s heritage, by bringing the late 19th Century back to life in the most respectful way. By infusing the space with a myriad of unexpected historical details - such as refurbished light fixtures featuring sophisticated brass accents and remodeled library furniture - the guest is instantly transported into the comfort and intimacy of a perfectly imperfect gentlemen’s club.

"Amongst a sea of bland, corporate eateries in Vancouver’s financial district, Nightingale is a beacon of eclectic charm and culinary cool… A modern take on a traditional gentleman’s club that seamlessly respects the original framework; white butcher tiles are tempered with light timber wood paneling, while industrial lighting, wrought iron chandeliers, and mahogany leather seating add a dash of sophistication.”


“Entering, it’s like slipping into a Coco Chanel jacket; stress departs in a big “Ahhhh.” A room such as this makes a diner look smashing, just like a bespoke jacket. You can be sure that successful restaurants not only create an interesting setting, they excel at manipulating emotions and perceptions, and even the taste of food.”
