The Gastown area of Vancouver originally began with the saloon of the founder ‘Gassy’ John Deighton in the 1870s. It seems fitting that in recent years the area has become known for its brilliant restaurants, bars, and nightclubs and is now one of the most fashionable areas of Vancouver. Gastown is home to many artists and galleries, music venues, and historic sites. Here’s our guide to ten of the best restaurants.
Situated on Alexander Street, diners at Guilt and Company are encouraged to indulge their senses. The restaurant doubles as a leading music venue in Vancouver, with regular swing and cabaret nights. The food here is all about big flavor combinations. The menu includes dishes such as bison steaks stuffed with mushrooms and goats cheese, and fried chicken wings served with mussels, chorizo, prawns, clams and tomato sauce. Ensure you save some room to indulge in their Red Velvet Cake—chocolate cake with layers of cream cheese.
