Vancouver - Eating, Drinking & the Nightlife (Chapter)
This chapter contains the Eating, Drinking and Nightlife chapters from Lonely Planet's Vancouver guidebook.
Vancouver’s seismic epicurean shift in recent years has delivered a rich and satisfying menu of dining options, with diversity and regional sourcing high on the list of ingredients. And with swanky new lounges springing up across Vancouver like drunks at an open bar, it’s not hard to find a drink to follow.
- follow your nose around the neighborhoods’ top dining streets, where you can’t throw a kapamaki (cucumber sushi roll) without hitting a good eatery
- ask your bar server for recommendations of local microbrewery beers worth sampling
- recover after a big night out at one of Vancouver’s great coffeehouses
- if you’re tired of the usual bar and club scene, try the letter-writing social club at Regional Assembly of Text
Coverage includes: Comedy, Clubbing, Live Music, Downtown, Stanley Park, West End, Yaletown, Gastown, Chinatown, South Main (Soma), Commercial Drive, Granville Island, Fairview & South Granville, Kitsilano and Metro Vancouver.
