Vancouver's definitive late night hot spot, Yaletown has steadily increased in popularity since it transformed from a warehouse district to the trendy area it is today. Often compared to New York City's SoHo neighborhood, Yaletown features chic boutiques, restaurants and hotels (including one of the city's top propertiesOPUS Vancouver). Even if you don't plan to hang your hat at OPUS, you should still plan to check out the hotel's cocktail lounge of the same name. Other top nightlife spots include Yaletown Brewing Co., Pierre's Lounge and Bar None. Recent visitors say there is something for everyone there, with a wide range of dining and drinking options in a variety of prices.

You'll find Yaletown in downtown Vancouver, about 2 miles southeast of Stanley Park. If you don't have your own set of wheels, you can get to Yaletown via the Canada Line SkyTrain; take the train to the Yaletown-Roundhouse Station. Several buses also service the area. For more information on the restaurants, hotels and events in Yaletown, visit the area's website.
