King Taps Kelowna Lakeside
Kelowna Lakeside is the second King Taps location in Canada, situated in the former long-standing Water St Bar, offering unparalleled 270-degree Lake Okanagan views.
Split between lounge and dining room seating indoors, with covered and open-air patios both upstairs and downstairs, the expansion of previously conjoined premises now accommodates nearly 500 seats, a bar with 75 beer taps, and a two-level commercial kitchen complete with a pizza station.
Material choices of light brown leather, rift-cut ash, and copper accents echo the original King Taps Toronto location; however, they also add a sense of lightness and playfulness. The staircase mural by local artist Drew Yong contributes to the “holiday” vibe, adding texture and inviting the patrons to the second floor.
