Nightlife I, Yaletown
A former downtown warehouse district, Yaletown is home to a robust nightlife scene. If Granville Street’s scene targets the twenty-somethings, Yaletown skews about 10 years older, meaning that you’re more likely to find couples toasting the end of the work-week with a designer cocktail, and well-dressed friends getting together at exclusive lounges.
If you go: Consider starting your evening at Yaletown Brewing, Vancouver’s original brewpub with a sports bar vibe that heats up after dark. OPUS Bar in the OPUS Hotel is a place to see and be seen, but if you’re for something a bit more casual, check out the pub-style New Oxford and Tavern downstairs.
