About The

Hi, we’re Gastown. People often refer to us as the beating heart of Vancouver. Or a one-of-a-kind kinda neighbourhood. We’re a hub for creatives and love to push boundaries at any chance we get. Our cobblestone streets offer you impeccably curated design studios, thriving fashion boutiques, unique art galleries, speakeasy-style bars, intimate live music venues, and some of the best culinary fare in the city (if we don’t say so ourselves).

We’re also a neighbourhood full of contrasting elements, layered in legacy. You can find grit and glam, native and foreign, old and new all within our 12 iconic street blocks. We love the arts and live for culture. We’re known for being full of the unknown, which is why we prefer that no two days or nights spent with us ever be the same. We’re a place full of meaning for many – and with many more memorable moments waiting to happen. What are you waiting for?


Gastown welcomes visitors from all direction. Whether by foot, bike, or public transport, multiple routes lead you to its historic streets, where creativity, diversity, and a rich legacy await.

Gastown has over 2,000 covered parking spaces in its secure parkades, along with dedicated Evo parking at Lot 31 – 160 Water St.

Lock your bike up in certain parkades or at one of the numerous bike racks throughout the neighbourhood. Additionally, there are two Mobi Bike Stations within Gastown.

Located 2 blocks east of both the Cruise Ship Terminal and the Trade & Vancouver Convention Centre, Gastown is a 5 minute walk from both locations.



We plan, promote, and provide a ton of services to our members and the greater community. This includes public safety, events, placemaking, and so much more. In true Gastown nature, we are one of the oldest BIA’s in the city (also making us one of the wisest in the game). We are a catalyst for positive change, helping to address broader planning, economic and social initiatives – all with an influential voice. Partnerships are also an integral part of our success. We are one of 22 BIA’s in Vancouver and get along extremely well with all of our neighbours.
