Enjoy a beer in Vancouver's West End

One of the most densely populated and diverse neighbourhoods in Vancouver is the West End – home to long-time residents, young families, international students and one of Canada’s largest LGBTQ communities. As such, there is no shortage of casual places to eat and drink in this established beach-side 'hood. Take in the scenery while sipping on a beer at any one of these bars or pubs.

The Fountainhead Pub

1025 Davie St, Vancouver, BC V6E 1M5

For many years, the Fountainhead has acted as the unofficial gateway for those looking to experience the Davie Village scene. The pub welcomes anyone looking for a cold beer or warm plate. The relaxed atmosphere is great for spending hours chatting with friends or just meeting for drinks before hitting the local club circuit.

Score On Davie

They have specials every day of the week, so it’s also a good spot for thirsty patrons on a tight budget.

The Pumpjack Pub

This is one of Vancouver’s most popular gay bars – the crowd here is decidedly masculine, but everyone is welcome.

Guu Kobachi

Open later than most restaurants in the neighbourhood, Guu Kobachi is a popular destination for the after-work crowd looking for delicious Japanese snacks and cold beers.

There is also a small selection of bottles and Japanese draft by the pint or pitcher.

Hub Restaurant
