Keefer Madness


Keefer Madness

Wonder what the Burton snowboarders are up to this week? Why they're practicing their swan dives in the rooftop pool at The Keefer, a high-end residence hotel just opened in Chinatown.

Each of the four floors comprises its own super-suite, with views over the classical Chinese gardens to the south and mountains to the north.

Rounding out the fun is the glass bottomed pool in the penthouse, specially commissioned art by Douglas Coupland, plus a sexy “Apothecary Bar” at street level serving up drinks made with Chinese medicinal herbs and tinctures.

We'll take a dose of that.

The Keefer, 133 Keefer St., Vancouver, 604-688-1983,
