Cool Shopping District

Commercial Drive is Vancouver's coolest shopping neighborhood, spanning 21 blocks of things to see and do.

Commercial Drive is over a mile long and is the home of more than 400 of the most eclectic combination of businesses in the city. Many of the businesses are single location owner-operated establishments, which makes them quite unique.

There are plenty of unique restaurants, cafés and eateries along with lots of taverns, bars and pubs to grab a bite or a beer in between shopping. The neighborhood is the home of stores that include the Barefoot Contessa, The Gourmet Warehouse, Audiopile, and Biercraft microbrewery.

If you're visiting the area on Halloween, be sure to check out Parade of the Lost Souls. If you're visiting at Christmas, the Christmas Market is a great place to gawk and shop.
