Our every meal has
its own unique story we want
to share with you

The Palms
Inspired Kitchen and Cocktails


The Palms,a re-imagined restaurant and lounge in what was formerly the Veneto space in the Rialto Hotel, opened its doors to the public on Augustt 2020 with a menu that helps keep local farmers busy and a revolving cocktail list that will change as the artwork does.


Art is a key feature of the new space. Cole and Ekstrom have forged a relationship with Rio, a French-Canadian artist from Montreal known as a bit of a phenom. Rio’s large paintings are installed throughout the restaurant, helping take it from, as Cole described it, “An old, classic dining room into a 2020 Las Vegas style place you want to come to on a date night.”.

Tradition passed thru generations


The cocktails are being designed by Bar Manager, James Bishop, and are named after the paintings on the walls; they will change as the pieces are purchased and new ones appear. A personal favourite is Crazy in Love, a refreshing mix of gin, Campari, Aperol and pineapple juice shaken on ice with a prosecco float, fresh pineapple and mint.
