The Best Bars In Vancouver
A bustling cocktail bar where two things shine through. The first: the friendliness and knowledge of the staff, especially with selecting a drink from their extensive menu. The second is the quality of their cocktails. Everything you could want from a bar and more.
A superb event space with an eclectic mix of acts and entertainers on a regular basis. Throw in some of the best craft beers in the city and quality gastropub-style food and this really is the Vancouver bar that has it all – and just keeps giving.
For over 80 years, the Commodore Ballroom has been synonymous with Vancouver entertainment and nightlife. As well as great music acts, they serve a large range of drinks with an extensive food menu. The perfect spot for a big night out.
They pour guest beers from all over the province and beyond, and pair them up with some of the very best food in Vancouver. An added bonus is all their meat, fish & poultry are either sourced locally, ocean friendly, naturally raised or free run. The staff are super knowledgeable about pairing the beers with the right foods.
Blink and you’ll miss this spot. As their website says and everybody in the know will tell you “simply look out for the red light”. Once inside, it’s a perfect small bar full of charm. A place for intimate conversations over a couple of drinks and also available to rent as a whole for private parties.
A Mecca for beer lovers. This huge open plan warehouse serves some fantastic craft beers as well as food that pairs perfectly with the drink, without being too fussy. A perfect place to come and hang out with friends after a long hard day to unwind in a buzzy atmosphere.
Vancouver’s first natural wine bar, Grapes & Soda offers a unique dining experience where an ever-changing and carefully cultivated list of natural, organic and biodynamic wines take pride of place with seasonally inspired small plates.
