Vancouver's best-kept secret is located underneath a mattress store on Main Street. The Narrow has no signage, so you have to know it's there. Look for what appears to be a shady bus stop; If you see a red light on, the bar is open. Head through a metal door, walk down some sketchy stairs, and you'll find yourself in a beautiful, prohibition-style bar (yes, even though Canada never had a Prohibition). The cocktails are classic, from G&Ts to cosmopolitans.
Vancouver is one heck of a night out. There is a lot to love about this city, and its commitment to sundown activities is right up there, with neighbourhood after neighbourhood offering unique bars covering a whole lot of ground. Gastown is at the heart of it all, no great shock when you consider the saloon-centric aspect of its origins, but the entire city has plenty to offer on the booze front. You’ll have to pack your umbrella, it being the PNW, after all, but what’s a little drizzle when you’ve got the best bars in Vancouver to explore? Spend your day exploring the best attractions, fill up at a fantastic restaurant and then get ready to hit the town.
