After Dark

Plenty of old-time watering holes have lined the streets of the city’s historic Gastown district. Today, most of the saloons have been replaced by hip pubs. Chill Winston has a cozy pub atmosphere with good drinks, a tasty brunch and a happening outdoor patio scene.

Rock legends like the Police, KISS, the Clash and Nirvana have all graced the stage at this popular art-deco theater. Today the venue hosts popular artists and indie bands on the road making it a staple on the Vancouver music scene.

Most references to lifts involve ski slopes, but not at this waterfront bar overlooking Coal Harbour. Guests can raise their glass at Lift and enjoy carefully picked wines and fun cocktails like the “over the hill” with gin, lemon and elderberry juice. The rooftop bar and patio offer stellar views of Stanley Park and the North Shore mountains.
