Beside the lower station of the Whistler Village Gondola, this spacious chalet-style bar and restaurant is a popular après-ski spot. The roaring fire provides comfort and warmth after a day on the slopes. In summer, hikers coming down off the mountains are drawn to the large patio, which offers views of the surrounding peaks.
FireRock Lounge offers a range of dining options, from bar snacks to lunch and dinner meals. Drink choices are plentiful too and include local BC craft beers, Scotch whiskies, wine, and a cocktail list that makes use of seasonal ingredients. Some dining and food tours of Whistler include a stop at FireRock Lounge, during which participants can taste specially selected dishes. The venue also hosts occasional events, including live music performances and themed parties.
