Globe Café & Tapas Bar
Come explore Globe Cafe & Tapas Bar, the most unique dining experience at Big White. Inspired by the cultures and cuisines of our travels we created Globe to offer you a unique retreat on the mountain. Enjoy fast healthy breakfasts to eat in or take to the slopes, savor the finest coffee, or enjoy delicious homemade soups and gourmet paninis for lunch. Once the lifts are closed, come for apres ski and simply relax with a beer or glass of wine from our local and international selection, or linger for the evening with our menu of globally inspired tapas dishes to share with friends.
A “locals favourite” expands: Globe Café relocates to a bigger, village centre location and makes grabbing your morning Americano or relaxing over a Salted Caramel Latte even more convenient as you stroll through the village or ski off the Plaza chairlift. “Travel the Globe but feel at home right here” is the message behind the new neighbourhood café side of the 150 seat totally refurbished restaurant.
Healthier options on a ski hill are often rare, but Globe will satisfy the most health conscious of skiers with a new fresh squeezed juice and smoothie menu, and daily housemade energy bars to add to their 6 year reputation for the smoothest coffees on the mountain.
You will also be able to grab a good book from their new community lending library, charge your phone or iPad in the wall mounted USB’s with complimentary cables if you’ve forgotten yours, build up points for free coffees with their new all platform loyalty App…..or autograph their huge wall mounted map of the world to show the far flung corners of the globe that visitors come from to holiday at Big White.
New Family Menus: Globe Tapas & Trattoria expands too and adds exciting new features to its new Italian inspired family menu including “Feed the Family for $60”, to include a huge bowl of fresh pasta dishes for sharing, plus drinks for the kids and wine for the parents.
Family Dinner nights will also include table top scrabble, trivial pursuit and other board games to enjoy with the kids before and after your food arrives! No screens allowed:)
Keg Wine: Globe’s reputation for an eclectic boutique VQA wine menu continues with the introduction of the first “Keg Wine” on the mountain. In line with trends seen usually only in the big cities, Globe has partnered with the renowned Fairview Cellars Winery in Oliver, BC to create their own unique Bordeaux style blend which will be served from 50L kegs straight into your glass.
This is high quality wine, not cheap wine, and one of the many features of a Keg wine program includes the improvement in our carbon footprint, something the Big White businesses are very committed to as such a visited area of natural beauty.
Comedy Café: Globe will introduce a regular Comedy Night to the mountain this season for the first time ever. Highly reputable stand up comics from around Western Canada will have you laughing and giggling over your beer at a monthly show kicking off on Saturday December 13th.
Christmas in December: All month long there is something festive going on in and around the village and involving our local community businesses. From Christmas music from around the world at Globe with the beautiful all female vocal group “8 Misbehavin”, accompanied by mince pies and mulled wine for Apres Ski on Saturday December 7th……to a village drenched all month in beautifully illuminated Christmas trees……to an amazing village centre Fireworks display following Santa’s skilfull decent down the mountain on skis on Christmas Eve.
Big White is always magical at Christmas and this year the magic reaches new heights!
