We enjoyed walking around South Granville. It was originally envisioned to be the "Nob Hill of Vancouver", referencing an elite area of San Francisco known for its mansions. South Granville is the stretch of Granville St. between West 2nd and West 16th, including one residential...More

South Granville is a vast neighbourhood. Although not technically located at the edge of the Granville Bridge and 4th avenue, it is know to start there. It harbours one of the most expensive commercial strips in Canada along Granville street (between 4th and 16th), but...More

Oh wait... that's New Hampshire. South Granville is fun too. Hang out here for a couple of hours walking through the shops, buy a chocolate from Purdy's, check out the very expensive cheeses at Meinhardt's, see a play at The Stanley, go to the only...More

Don't miss out on any part of granville. It is a very pretty place with lots to do. The weather was good to us whilst we were in Vancouver. It only rained on the day we left

This is a wonderful way to spend an hour or two. Lots of good art, antiques, and fashion stores. Along with places to heat. Being an uphill walk (depending on your direction), it is a good work out. As for parking, look on the side...More

South Granville contains many retail stores and restaurants, but locally it's known primarily for the various art and antique stores. Sure, the proprietors may come across as pretentious and snobby, and treat you like dirt if you're not wearing the right kind of shoes/clothing, but...More

General Questions of Vancouver (10 Replies)
Where is South Granville street? Is it near Yaletown? I don't have a map on me so I don't know where South Granville is located. I heard there are a lot of nice shops, any recommendations to eat around there? Which would you prefer Lynn Cannon or Capilano Bridge/Grouse Mountain? Is Steveston Landing worth a visit?

South granville is a bit boring. I would stick to robson,davie,denman,yaletown for shopping. Heading downtown from the airport you will drive right through south granville.

Good location - Broadway/Granville (3 Replies)
We're spending 3 days in Vancouver before our cruise. I've been researching hotels/rentals and found a good price on a 1 BR rental advertised as near Broadway and Granville, 2 blocks from South Granville shopping district. Would this be a convenient location? We don't mind taking public transportation and don't plan on renting a car. We want to hit the highlights of Vancover while we are there (Gastown, Granville Island, Stanley Park, etc). Or would a downtown location be better? Thanks in...More

South Granville sits on the other side of the bridge from downtown. It's a nice little area. Granville Island is actually in the same neighbourhood, so you could easily walk there. Stanley Park and Gastown (and Yaletown, and Robson Street, etc) are all across the bridge. It takes about 15 minutes to walk across the bridge, or you could take one of the many buses that zip across the bridge every few minutes. You could even walk down to Granville Island and take a water taxi across to downtown,...More

Hey guys, So far enjoying the trip to Van City. Thinking of visiting Vij's tonight possibly. I know it opens at 5:30 though do we have to be there 30 mins early on a weeknight? Like if we went around 8ish tonight (on a Tuesday) would we get seated in reasonable time (30 mins to an hour)? Are there places for cocktails as you're waiting for your seats? As well I've seen that there are several locations in the city. Which one is the best to visit? The one on Cambie or in South Granville?...More
