Two weeks ago, we visited the city of Vancouver to meet with new collaborators from the West Coast. We fell in love with British Colombia and the people we met there. For those who enjoy good beer and scenery landscapes, Vancouver stands out remarkably.
Here are our suggestions if you plan to visit the city of Vancouver soon. These are inclusive places and focused on the discovery of flavours, nature and landscapes. In addition, we added events frequented by LGBTQ communities in the region.
33 Acres Brewery
Their space is located near a synthesis of forest and the Pacific. Itʼs there they carved out a space to foster collectivity and fine craft beer. They hold that quality product exists in solidarity with working among friends, family, and community. It is an inclusive space; they value innovation in both their craft and design. The common area was created to align these fundamentals with the simple aesthetics of their surrounding environment.
The spirit of community sharing; Drink, food, conversation, space, and ideas.
Our suggestion: Try the 33 Acres of Sunshine.
Davie Street & English Bay Beach
Rainbow flags and sunburst banners adorn the lampposts in this lively neighbourhood in the heart of downtown’s dense West End. Known internationally for its thriving community of gay and lesbian residents, Davie Village is offers a chilled-out vibe for people watching during the day, and thumping clubs, pubs and street life at night.
Walk from there to English Bay Beach. It’s a must.
MAN UP events @ Cobalt
Man Up is a monthly gender performance cabaret and queer dance party in East Vancouver. Find them at the Cobalt on the last Friday of each month!
On March 29th, they celebrated their 8th anniversary!
You also NEED to visit East Vancouver (Commercial Drive). This is where the lesbian communities hang out. When The L Word was filming in Vancouver, Jennifer Beals (Bette Porter) was often seen at Joe’s Cafe in East Vancouver. Le quartier où passer du temps si vous voulez faire des rencontres.

Sea to Sky Gondola, Squamish
The Sea To Sky Gondola is located in Squamish, British Columbia, which is the heart of the world famous Sea to Sky Corridor.
The Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge is approximately 100 metres long and has a backdrop that falls away thousands of feet below, giving you a greater feeling of exposure and height over land. The Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge offers amazing 360 degree views of the area, both up to the high alpine of the mountains above and down to the fjord below. This feature is an exciting and thrilling adventure that all ages and abilities can enjoy.
