Gastown Named One of the Coolest Neighbourhoods in the World
Written by Gastown Admin
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 furniture and original hardwood floors. Don’t miss art studio and boutique Athena Atelier for stunning structural leather handbags.”
Gastown is listed amongst some of the world’s highly acclaimed “fashionable or up-and-coming” places from Paris to Amsterdam and Hong Kong. Congratulations to everyone in the neighbourhood and all the businesses who received notable mentions!
