How to Spend an Eclectic Day in Gastown

The most exciting aspect to Gastown is the diversity in the neighbourhood. There's an incredible range of creative businesses, each offering something unique, so we thought we would share a guide highlighting which places to explore for an eclectic day in Gastown. Here are our suggestions.

Founded by the Giannakos brothers, Revolver, brings a truly unique experience to Vancouver coffee enthusiasts. Recently, they have expanded Revolver’s space, opening a new room next door called Archive. We sat down with George Giannakos to discuss the concept of Archive, changes in the local coffee scene, and how to make the best cup of coffee you’ve ever had.

There is more creative talent in the neighbourhood! Vancouver Film School’s new Animation & Visual Effects campus has officially opened in Gastown. The new 42,000 square-foot facility takes over the site from the former Storyeum with a complete redesign of the building, turning the space into a state-of-the-art animation school. We sat down with Managing Director, Marty Hasselbach, to get insight on the new campus and upcoming plans for Vancouver Film School.

The "cool" T-shirt movement is continuing to make a presence. Walk around the neighbourhood and you’ll find plenty of tees with amazing graphics, many of which are designed right here in Vancouver. We thought we would give a shout out to one-of-a-kind T-shirts designed in the city, found in Gastown. Check out the list.

When it comes to shopping and style, you can always find an amazing range of independent fashion in Gastown. With the amount of emerging talent and quality labels hailing from Vancouver, there is definitely a strong appreciation for local designs.

With a reputation of serving the best oysters in the city, Rodney’s Oyster House in Gastown is one of the hottest restaurants for Vancouver seafood aficionados. We chatted with Jarret, the manager at Rodney’s Gastown location, to spill the beans on Rodney's top-notch shuckers, famous sauces, and how they get the freshest seafood.
