Oak + Cru Social Kitchen & Wine Bar

As an extension of the Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Okanagan Resort, and located on the lakefront in the heart of downtown Kelowna, Oak + Cru Social Kitchen & Wine Bar draws its inspiration from the bounty of the Okanagan Valley, which includes over 200 wineries and many local purveyors and artisans. You know you have arrived in the Heart of Wine Country from the moment your experience begins. The motto of “arrive as strangers, and leave as friends” sets the tone for an interactive and vibrant social ambiance. Guests will venture on a culinary journey with the panoramic backdrop of Lake Okanagan.

Oak + Cru Social Kitchen & Wine Bar’s modern yet timeless name and brand identity pays tribute to references found in the wine making process and finishes implemented throughout the space, all while speaking to the notion of gathering and socializing. The contemporary brand essence sets the tone for the menu and signage program.

The kitchen concept is built on the unique and modern presentation of globally inspired cuisine, with a local “Farm to Table” twist. The signature Wood Stone oven provides the anchor for menu content throughout each meal period, while using fresh high quality products that are locally and regionally sourced.

This is not your average Wine Bar… As an extension of the Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Okanagan Resort, Oak + Cru Social Kitchen & Wine Bar will be the city’s most popular gathering spot, driving energy as the hub of the hotel lobby. Although wine will be celebrated as a victory with locals and hotel guests, the bar will also feature a Liquid Kitchen cocktail program with the freshest local ingredients and a selection of local craft beers. We will boast the best Okanagan wine by the glass program, and a visual interactive cellar of over 400 labels. The restaurant team’s knowledge of the local beverage program and menu content will be second to none, delivering a high level of consistent service with a focus on telling the local story of the Okanagan.
