Banff, 5 July 2023 – Nestled in Banff National Park, Fairmont Banff Springs’ summer-long poolside activation, Banffchella, returns this month, transforming this historic resort’s indoor and outdoor pool areas into a vibrant landscape brimming with experiential art, painted indoor arches, lawn games, and a resident DJ spinning tropical tunes.
For guests looking for something hip to sip and savour during Banffchella, Canada’s Castle in the Rockies is offering something new this year: 13 Below, a terrace bar serving up house made and locally-sourced ice-cream, as well as signature cocktails alongside its million dollar mountain view. Featured at 13 Below is Fairmont Banff Springs’ new locally-made, Wildlife Rundle Gin and Tonic. Crafted by Fairmont Regional Mixologist and Diageo World Class Canada Top 3 Bartender, Sam Clark, this pre-mixed summer libation boasts Rundle Bar’s award-winning signature blue gin accompanied with a refreshing yuzu and lime twist.
“We are thrilled to reintroduce Banffchella to Fairmont Banff Springs this summer,” said Eric Overstreet, Hotel Manager at Fairmont Banff Springs. “This colourful and immersive juxtaposition within our world-renowned castle provides an unexpected and truly memorable experience for our guests.”
Banffchella officially launches this week, with DJ sessions from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. every Friday & Saturday until the end of summer. Access is complimentary for guests of Fairmont Banff Springs.
