Gastown Named One of the Coolest Neighbourhoods in the World

From Stylist Magazine:

“Vancouver’s answer to Shoreditch, this district was neglected for years but is now bursting with bijou eateries, quirky designers and the coolest bars. Guilt & Co do a mean red velvet cake and host a bi-monthly folk music night. The Sardine Can is a delightfully tiny and hugely popular restaurant serving up quirky Spanish tapas including smoked sardines on toast and a tongue tingling chocolate terrine with chilli and sea salt.

A few blocks away The Victorian Hotel is a design classic, with lofty ceilings, vintage furni
ture and original hardwood floors. Don’t miss art studio and boutique Athena Atelier for stunning structural leather handbags.”
