Araxi Restaurant owners reveal details of second Whistler location

Dual-concept restaurant, Bar Oso and The Cellar by Araxi, slated to open this fall



Toptable Group has revealed details of its second Whistler property, a dual-concept restaurant that ownership says will “deepen the Araxi experience.”

Headed by Araxi Executive Chef James Walt and Restaurant Director Neil Henderson, the new village venue — named ‘Bar Oso’ and ‘The Cellar by Araxi’ — will add another element to Whistler’s dining scene.

“These exciting new spaces, beautifully created by Box Interior Design, are a great extension for Araxi Restaurant and our talented team,” said Toptable president Michael Doyle in a release. “Bar Oso, located Village Stroll level, will be open daily to the public to serve sharing plates, compelling cocktails, and approachable wines.

“While The Cellar by Araxi will allow us to extend our private dining and meeting space options. We think that with their exciting décor and extraordinary food and drink, both venues will deepen the Araxi experience.”

Bar Oso will be open late daily and will offer a selection of Spanish-influenced small plates, including Iberico ham, chilled seafood, house-made charcuterie, and a range of tapas.

On the lower level, The Cellar by Araxi is designed to host intimate dinners and events and will also feature a wine wall and dedicated wine room. The show kitchen will be home to interactive chef demonstrations as well.

The new location will be at #9-4222 Village Square and is expected to open in the fall.
