It's the day many have been waiting for.

B.C.’s first King Taps location is officially open for business.

The restaurant is located at 1352 Water Street and offers 270 degrees of indoor and outdoor Lake Okanagan views across two-levels.

King Taps Lakeside offers main course and shareable menu items, family-style dining, regional wines, and over 50 rotating taps.

The original King Taps opened in Toronto’s financial district in 2017.

“We’re beyond excited to be opening our second King Taps location, and first in B.C., along downtown’s iconic waterfront. As Kelowna’s new waterfront hangout, everyone is invited to discover our outstanding service, selection and style. We’ve got something for everyone, whether guests are looking for a casual drink, elevated fine-dining or anything in between,” said Thomas Beetlestone, Regional Manager at King Taps.

Beetlestone says over 150 people have been trained and hired.

“At King Taps Lakeside, our chefs create best-in-class entrees, shareable plates, pizza-lover-pizzas, mouth-watering handhelds and more, including gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan-friendly options,” said James Bunting, Regional Chef at King Taps.

“Our kitchen team strives to make memorable, delicious food accompanied by complementary drinks, including the best in Okanagan wines. We’ve got something for everyone.”

With the restaurant right by the water nearby boaters will be able to pick up takeout items or bags of ice with the QR code.

The restaurant will offer takeout through KingTaps.com and delivery via DoorDash.

Reservations are also available online and walk-ins are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The location is open Sunday through Wednesday 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m, and Thursday through Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 a.m.
