I’m going to be in Vancouver later on this week and thought someone could suggest some good galleries, exhibitions and bars to check out?

Anyone local and know of anything happening?

The local ID happenings are generally posted at
Unfortunately you just missed a big “design bbq” at one of the local beaches last Thursday. Looking back…might have been a good post in this forum.

A few suggestions for bars:

Local design hipster hangout - The Cascade Room. Main St and 11th Ave.

Great patio - Chill Winston. located in Gastown. Also very close to Inform Interiors which has a load of great design books and plenty of overpriced designer furniture.

If it rains on a Thursday (never happens - just a rumor) - head to the Yaletown Brew Pub for half price pints.

Take a water taxi ($2.50) from downtown to wander around Granville Island - home of the local design school/ public market/ more bars…

enjoy your stay…
