Being transported back in time requires no stretch of the imagination at this new Vancouver restaurant and lounge. HJU:Z (pronounced Hughes) is inspired by none other than Hollywood legend Howard Hughes, the Hollywood lifestyle he emulated and the classic art deco style from the era of his rise to prominence. What better place to pay homage to this Hollywood icon than to have HJU:Z located in the Westin Bayshore, where he famously stayed for six months in 1972.

The throwback tone is first set by the velvet finishings, marble table tops and gold accents designed by Liv Décor. This sumptuous design is both timeless and contemporary, making for a perfect setting to take in HJU:Z’ stunning waterfront views.

Dive into the carefully curated cocktail list, or one of the wines from the globally-inspired wine list. Rare Rieslings, local favourites, and sommelier crafted pairings complement the flavours of each dish and can easily please your palate.

HJU:Z menu draws inspiration from Hughes’ infamous world tour. Russian, French, American and local Pacific Northwest flavours all find their way into HJU:Z’ cuisine. Sought-after delicacies to fresh local fare are all highlighted in their elegant, modern dishes.

To put a cherry on top of your nostalgic night out, HJU:Z provides nightly entertainment to fully transport your senses to another time and place.

Whether you’re looking to simply sip a cocktail while taking in the gorgeous décor and harbour views, or go all out to celebrate a special occasion, HJU:Z is the perfect spot for your next night out.

HJU:Z is located in the Westin Bayshore at 1601 Bayshore Drive, Vancouver. For more information, visit their website: www.hjuzlounge.com
