Top Nightlife Experiences in Vancouver
While Vancouver has its fair share of busy bars and clubs—the highest concentration of which are on Granville Street—the city also offers some alternative nightlife activities. From craft breweries to floodlit ski slopes, here’s how to make the most of your evenings in Vancouver.
Vancouver’s craft beer scene is flourishing; you can find breweries all over town. Take an evening craft beer tour to visit several of the city’s best breweries and brewpubs in one go, and to get tips on where’s best to continue your night of craft beer discovery.
Active After-Dark Excursions
Vancouver is an outdoorsy city, so sunset doesn’t stop its residents from getting active. Speed down the illuminated ski runs of Grouse Mountain, or join a nighttime kayak or stand-up paddleboard excursion around False Creek and English Bay.
Encircled by ocean inlets and snow-capped peaks, Vancouver is one of the world’s most scenic cities. Bag the best views of the downtown skyline and the North Shore Mountains on a sunset cruise around Vancouver Harbour and English Bay; some cruises feature buffet dinners and onboard bars.
