The Crystal Lodge: Citta’ Bistro Set to Close and Make Way for New Neighbourhood Pub

14th March, 2014
Crystal Lodge WhistlerCrystal Lodge & Suites announced today that it is not renewing its lease agreement with Citta’ Bistro as of May 31, 2014, and will be reopening a new neighbourhood pub in the same space after minor renovations and upgrades are completed.

"We recognize that Citta’ Bistro has been an iconic landmark in the heart of Whistler village for many years, so we make this decision with mixed emotions,” says Ian Lowe, General Manager, Crystal Lodge & Suites. “While we are saying goodbye to a local landmark, we are very excited about our plans for the space, and will make sure it offers the same warm hospitality and great food that Citta’ has been delivering.”

Lowe says that employees working at Citta’ will be given priority consideration when hiring for the new restaurant, still to be named, beginning later this spring.

Crystal Lodge & Suites is a 158-room independent hotel owned and operated by the Burrard Group, a family owned Vancouver based company with deep roots in the Whistler community dating back to the 1970s.

The Burrard Group thanks Citta’ Bistro for being such an excellent tenant and partner for the past 25-plus years at the Crystal Lodge.
