Located off the lobby at the historic Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, Emerald Lounge features Alberta meats, burgers and sandwiches, seasonal salads and shareable snacks. Many selections reflect the Fairmont’s commitment to organic produce from nearby Twin Meadows Farm, and the lodge‘s own roof top honey beehives. This is a gracious setting to enjoy a cocktail or locally brewed beer.
This relaxing, family-friendly venue is seeped in charming mountain elegance. Features include an enormous centre-of-the-room rock fireplace, incredible Lac Beauvert and Whistlers Mountain views through floor-to-ceiling windows, and rustic soft chairs and couches. The handsome bar with counter seats and the Emerald’s lovely balcony patio both overlook the lake.
