Yaletown’s boutique Opus Hotel will switch off all its (non-essential) lights on March 26th at 8:30 pm, in honour of the 4th annual Earth Hour.

Day 24: Candlelight

Bulbs will be replaced with candles. The entire property—from the front desk and lobby to One Hundred Nights—will be romantically lit by candlelight.

At the newly opened One Hundred Nights, guests will dine in relative darkness for one hour from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm, their tables and surroundings lit only by candlelight. To compliment Earth Hour, the restaurant is offering a $45 set menu titled “Beyond the Hour” with 15% of food revenue being donated to the Japan Relief Fund.

Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy dishes like roasted asparagus served with poached egg, truffles and hollandaise sauce; house made ricotta filled ravioli with lemon, herbs and extra virgin olive oil; and fillet of certified Angus beef served with roasted barley risotto, wild mushrooms and carrot puree.

Meanwhile, over in the ever-stylish OPUS Bar, all neon and non-essential lights will also be switched off, and 15% of food revenue donated to the same charity.

OPUS Hotel Vancouver guests will be encouraged to participate and will be given flashlights upon check-in. Those who choose to enjoy a romantic Earth Hour in their rooms will also be contributing to the Japan Relief Fund as 15% of room service charges that evening will donated to support and provide aid to those devastated by the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.

OPUS Hotel is located at 322 Davie Street in Yaletown.
