Top 5 bars in Gastown, Vancouver

After a grueling day at work, you deserve a little break. Maybe catch a bite to eat and a few brews with friends, then dash off to the nearest movie plex for a few hours of cinematic bliss. There are options aplenty. You work and play in the greater Vancouver area, the largest city in British Columbia, so there is no shortage of things to do – museums, theatres, sports complexes, and, of course, great restaurants and other nightlife destinations.

Top 5 bars in Gastown, Vancouver

Known as the original settlement which later became the core of Vancouver, Gastown’s history began in 1867. Soon, it became a bustling seaport thanks to its waterfront location. Teeming with salons, sawmills, and trading posts, it has since blossomed into a virtual mecca of hipster-attracting retailers, high-tech businesses, and nightclubs galore. If bars are your “thing,” then we have some recommendations. And as you might expect, the best is concentrated along the waterfront.
