If you’re a professional photographer or amateur and shoot on your iPhones, you’d appreciate Vancouver for its vibrant and photogenic restaurant and bar ambiance. The fact is, the aesthetically appealing eateries in town are only growing.
When next time you’re in Vancouver and looking to fill both your belly and your creative juices, head to one of these nine photogenic restaurants, and you’ll get both in one sitting.
- Reflections Bar at Hotel Georgia
This hotel bar is situated on the rooftop of the Hotel Georgia in the city’s heart Reflections, which is a popular destination for downtown dwellers seeking an urban oasis. The decor of this bar is amazing where you’ll find plenty of plants, string lights and wooden accents which creates a dream space.
Sing Sing Beer Bar
When you visit it for a drink, the afternoon sun lights the bright contemporary decor or if you visit after dark to enjoy the neon-lit signage out front, this bar in Mount Pleasant welcomes you on Main Street. Try out a new shot or satiate your hunger with a bowl of pho (a Vietnamese soup).
Botanist at Fairmont Pacific Rim
You will be confused about figuring out which is more impressive at Botanist, the cocktail list or the flora that decorates the space. The cozy oasis is expertly decorated with local leaf. It’s just like a chic arrangement that works as a bar, restaurant and also an event space.
The Coquille, located in Gastown, which means “shell” in French, is inspired by aquatic life, which is visible in its interior design. You can see pink booths with tufted backs which appears to be a scallop shell. It completely complements the extensive seafood menu.
Granville Street’s Hotel Belmont is also known as a “hotel house party” and is decorated with the kitschy wallpaper and bold color palette. The hotel is separated into rooms, like The Basement, The Den and The Kitchen, and the entire space has an at-home vibe. You will feel like attending a cool house party. The blend of flamingo wallpaper, neon signs, and graphic art will collectively make for several solid photo shots.
Blossom Dim Sum
Huge murals of cherry blossom are the excellent backdrops at the newly-opened Blossom Dim Sum in the West End. You will also see upside-down parasols hanging from the roof as well as velvet upholstery, all these make this bar Insta-worthy. You cannot miss out on the cherry blossom mural that’s shaped like giant wings at the entrance.
You can have the feel of Cuba at this bar. Havana, located on Commercial Drive not only serves you inspired eats and cocktails from the Caribbean’s largest island but the decor of the entire space is packed with exposed brick, mosaic tiles, and electric colors, making you feel like you’re miles away without leaving Canada.
All these bars will make you feel out of the world, closer to nature and multiple cultures without actually visiting those places. You’d love to spend some quality time in these bars away from the hustle and bustle of life.
