The quintessential businessmen; intelligent, successful, and looks great in a suit. Here ‘s where they hangout:
Find businessmen here any time of the day. Busiest during lunch and once 4:30 hits. Also – some of the best cocktails in town.
10. Notch 8
Exotic and lively, Notch 8 Restaurant and Bar is the hot new business meeting hangout in the city and for good reason. It’s spacious yet private enough for an intimate work dinner or cocktail, has a great menu, and makes you feel as if you’ve taken a trip back to the 1930’s. (Located inside Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.)
Where you go for the best seafood in the city, and for exceptional service. Where the business men go to celebrate a successful deal, or to win someone over. Also the perfect date-night spot.
8. Giovane Cafe
We mean, it’s connected to Lobby Lounge at Pac Rim, so of course it’s going to be brimming with guys in suits in need of a caffeine boost (or midday drink.) They also have a great little patio that’s always packed the moment the sun comes out.
Another hotel lounge and restaurant, Grain Tasting Bar inside the HYATT on Burrard is a fresh, cool, contemporary West Coast hangout. It’s sleek and spacious and offers great share plates and a great view of the financial district.
Similar to Cactus Club, a preferred and popular spot for all of the corporate guys working in the surrounding buildings. The beautiful women are an added bonus and welcome distraction from their daily workload. A sea of suits between 11 and 1pm.
Great steak, a great rooftop patio, and an even greater chance of meeting a businessman at Black and Blue on Alberni because they all work hard to enjoy the better things in life.
Smack-dab in the Financial District, Cactus Club Bentall is an obvious choice for investors and financial guys. Where work meetings turn into happy hour, very quickly.
3. Pac Rim
Surrounded by corporate office buildings and right across from the Vancouver Convention Centre, Lobby Lounge at Pac Rim is where everyone in the area goes for meetings, hangouts, and after-work socials.
Who wouldn’t want to hit up the most beautiful rooftop in the city. The perfect escape after a long day at the office, with a great happy hour and host to monthly social networking events, Reflections: The Garden Terrace definitely ranks high on this list.
You’ll need a membership for this one. The hangout for all of the Harvey Specters, and Jordan Belforts alike.
