We had drinks and appetizers at the Rundle Lounge in the Fairmont. Pretty, sunny day looking out onto the terrace and the beautiful mountains. Appetizers were great, a little pricey but worth it for the experience.

It depends on the season and time of day. When we were there in May, late afternoon, it wasn’t necessary.
