Canadians love to vacation in Cuba, but if you don’t feel like packing a suitcase, then Havana on The Drive is the next best thing. The owners have decorated in the shabby chic style of the Cuban capital. Skip the mojito cocktail and order a glass of wine instead – it’s how Cubans break the rules.

The Cannibal Cafe

1818 Commercial Dr, Vancouver, BC V5N 4A5

Sure, you can find your favourite wine at the liquor store and enjoy it at home, but then you’d be missing out on the awesome retro decor and laid-back atmosphere at The Cannibal. The cool checkered floor, vinyl booths and punk rock concert posters give it a fun, retro vibe. If you’ve never had poutine with a glass of wine, come see what you’ve been missing.
