As usual the drinks here are fantastic and love that that twice a year new ones are added. Two recent ones are the 'Sangria Martini' and 'Coconut Grapefruit Margarita' are delicious and hope they can be keepers. However the only one negative which kept this from being excellent is we found that the meat and cheese boards are now only... More

We went down to this bar on the last evening of our week holiday. The waitress was kind and friendly and the food was fantastic. The beers and cocktails she recommended us were also fine and we really enjoyed the family chat over the meal in such an atmospheric bar. Good ending of the holiday. Fully refreshed and regained energy... More

I have been in a few times before for appetizers and drinks and thought it would be a good place to have my staff annual gathering. I called Grain the next day for some information and was given the managers direct line as the staff could not book a larger party. I called the number i was given and it... More

I met a friend there for drinks and a light dinner. The spinach appy was made fresh with lots of spinach, I had the bbq chicken pizza which was very good. My only complaint was there appeared to be too much salt in the dough for my liking. In terms of service, the waitress from Switzerland was very pleasant and... More

The bartender was very helpful with selecting a drink. The waitress was friendly and always seemed to be right there when we needed her. We enjoyed the raw oysters and ceviche tacos very much. The banana split dessert is amazing.

During our stay at the Hyatt (first time visitors to Vancouver), we had a pleasant light dinner and drinks in this stylish bar. The food choices were quite diverse and the drink selection...excellent! As a lover of scotch it was good to see some well priced aged single malt choices as well as a great selection of Canadian spirits. The... More

This is in a great location right next to the Burrard Skytrain Station in the Hyatt Regency hotel. We were surprised that the door was still locked at 11 a.m. which was posted as their opening time. That and the fact that we waited an hour for our meals were the only two negatives here. We were a group of... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
