Rolling through to Van City from the 17th to the 20th and was wondering about the nightlife while I am there.

I'll be at Whistler for Thursday and Friday, and need to know what pop offs.

Restaurants, Clubs, activities.

Good looking out, and thanks in advance.

Supreme stickers for those who are down to meet up and show me and my homies around.

go checkout fortune sound club in chinatown if you have time.
If you want to see a bird's eye view of vancouver, go to Harbour Centre ( it's the disk shaped tower right outside of Waterfront Station) there's a lookout there. Check gastown too, if you want to buy some stuff go to livestock, Roden gray, and Haven. They are all in gastown just ask people if you can't find those stores.

couple suggestions for meals (approximate cost per person in brackets):

-Chill Winston ($30) - a nice lounge/bar (gets pretty packed on the weekends)
-Kintaro ($10) - famous ramen (Japanese noodle) place; good for lunch
-West ($60+) - good but very $$$
-Guu Izakaya ($20) - Japanese izakaya; might want to get there early to avoid waiting
-db Bistro Moderne ($30-40) - It's a little outside downtown; famous for their burgers
-Rodney's Oyster Bar ($20) - Go during happy hour for awesome and cheap oysters
-Cheesecake etc ($15) - best cheesecake in town

clubs:
-Republic
-Caprice

Activities:
-stantley park, capilano suspension bridge, yaletown & gastown, robson street

as far as clubs go, Please don't listen to this guy. Caprice and Republic are two of the gayest clubs in the city. Not literally gay, but they are super overpriced, and full of douche bags. I suggest you pretty much stay away from Granville street. (unless you are an affliction douche bag yourself, then by all means go for it)

For clubs, my suggestions:

-Fortune (By far the best club in the city. Best shows, best sound system, etc)
-Post Modern
-Metropole
-Barcelona (Only club on granville I can recommend, I know the owner. But be prepared to pay $$$)

And if you're into the hesh hipster skate scene, the Astoria.

Restaurants?

-Le Crocodile (High end French, the best in the city)
-Don Francescos
-Chambar
-Tojos (If you can afford it, but its probably the best sushi/japanese cuisine you will taste outside of Japan. Be prepared to pay $200 per person NOT including dranks)
-Shiro
-Les faux bourgeois

I could list tons of awesome restaurants.

If you seriously want a guide, id be down to gather a couple of my homies and show you whats up, as long as you guys are chill. I'm pretty much downtown all the time. PM me.

Did this guy just recommend Caprice and Republic?

Deadlock knows what's up. Chambar is my fav spot, I'm a shell fish fiend and great bar program. The Diamond in gastown for the best cocktails in town, great location too. The staff and owners are fam, great people. Fuck Chill Winston. Anyone that recommends that spot is either a tourist or from the suburbs. Absolute worst service in the city. Always busy and good for people watching in the summer though.
