Owner description: Yaletown is Vancouver’s trendy and upscale renovated warehouse district. This fresh urban neighbourhood is just an easy walk from the centre of downtown Vancouver or a quick ferry ride from Granville Island. Yaletown’s converted heritage buildings are home to some of city’s top fashion and design shops, as well as cutting edge restaurants and bars. Old loading docks act as giant sidewalks and create a unique setting for wandering, shopping, or lounging at one of the many outdoor patios.

“Fun area, especially on weekends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Yaletown is a fun area, especially on weekends and even moreso when there is a celebration going on. More restaurants than you could ever hope for, all good in their own ways, many including patio seating. As well, some quaint shops to browse through.

“lively cool area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Great music, great bars, little back alley clubs with very low cover charges, mixed age groups and types of people, kinda casual cool. You can walk around the whole area and just drop in for a drink or two every door or two!

“Good choices for dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Easy to get to area by Canada Line. We have enjoyed dining in the area, love the choices. Even chain restaurants feel different (better menus and service) in Yaletown.

“Great place to hang out in Vancouver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Great restaurants and bars. Lots of high end shopping, spas and hair salons. I Love Yaletown! Please try Brix wine bar and restaurant when you re in Yaletown. Very romantic and the food is great, but then again it is hard to get a bad meal in this part of town, if not all of Vancouver.
