Main Street Nightlife

Bars, Pubs, and Lounges in Vancouver's Mount Pleasant

By

Vancouver's Main Street has a solid nightlife scene away from the frenzy of Downtown. You won't find packed dance floors here, but you can sample excellent craft beers, retro cocktails, and tasty late-night menus. Many Main Street restaurants also serve food and drink into the wee hours.

Main Street Bars, Pubs, and Lounges:

1. The Whip

Craft-brewed ales and seasonal casks are the draw at this off-Main gallery and bar. The space has two levels and an exposed-duct-and-brick industrial feel. The good bar menu delivers atypical pub fare, with organic meats and seafood.
Address: 209 E. 6th Ave.
Phone: 604-874-4687
Price-range: Moderate

2. The Cascade Room

A spacious, sultry-toned lounge is slotted with booths where patrons sit, sipping retro cocktails made from fresh juices and house syrups. Both the wine and beer lists are extensive with lots of less-common names to sample.
Address: 2616 Main St.
Phone: 604-709-8650
Price-range: Moderate

3. Portland Craft

This bar is a nod to Oregon's legendary brewing and dining scenes, with a lengthy list of rotating drafts. Tasty eats are a collection of nibbles, like wings, salted hazelnuts, and cream-filled doughnuts.
Address: 3835 Main St.
Phone: 604-569-2494
Price-range: Moderate

4. Narrow Lounge

Only a red light marks this alley establishment off Main Street, a long and truly narrow room. But despite its diminutive size, the lounge packs in a bar, piano, and standing-room-only crowds.
Address: Main Street and East 3rd Avenue
Price-range: Inexpensive

5. The Five Point

For a pub that's just a pub with reasonably priced drinks (and also hosts open-mic nights), head to this unpretentious Main Street bar. The sunny, west-facing patio is set up for easy people-watching, and the food menu has plenty of reliable options.
Address: 3124 Main St.
Phone: 604-876-5810
Price-range: Inexpensive
