Pick-Up Wednesdays | HIPSTERS

LoadingAdd to favorites

Where do you find skinny-jean clad, plaid-wearing, hipsters in Vancouver? At any one of these venues, guaranteed.

In no particular order:

13. Lucy’s Eastside Diner 

Open 24/7, Lucy’s Eastside Diner is famous for arguably having the best milkshakes in town, in addition to a bevy of hipsters looking to share in their mutual love for burgers, mac n’cheese, and Main Street, all inside this retro-cool joint.

12. Guilt and Co.

One of the best spots for live music in the city, Guilt and Co. is an intimate, underground space with daily live performances, unique cocktails from an always rotating menu, yummy nibbles, and Jenga. The full hipster package and a one-of-a-kind experience.

11. Bandidas 

Because the majority of hipsters are vegetarians, right?  Bandidas on the Drive is a cozy, “Mexican-inspired” (real Mexican food is too out there for hipsters) taqueria-esque space with actually really delicious dishes at an affordable price.  Particularly busy on the weekends during brunch.

10. The Biltmore

A live music and entertainment venue that has been a fixture in the community for years, The Biltmore has a great ambiance that and is popular amongst not only hipsters, but the general, music-loving public – but mainly hipsters.

9. St. Augustine’s

Nachos, craft beer, and good times to be had at St. Augustine’s on Commercial Drive.  A lively and always bustling neighbourhood hangout where many a beanie, high-waisted jeans, and over-sized glasses are seen.

8. Timbertrain

There’s nothing hipsters love more than a nice pour-over, and a cool logo and at Timbertrain – they have both.

7. 33 Acres Brewing

Craft beer is a hipster’s kryptonite. Ride up to 33 Acre Brewing, grab a seat or a stool at a table or join a communal table and meet fellow craft-beer lovers.

6. The Heatley

Located in the heart of Strathcona, The Heatley is a family-run business that offers good food and drinks (Caesars are the bomb) and live music a few days out of the week. A place where everyone feels home.

5. Bestie

Because sausages + pretzels + beer = a hipster’s dream come true.  Although we can’t gaurantee you’ll find love, you will find the best Currywurst – outside of Germany and that alone, is reason enough to visit.

4. The Foundation

You won’t find anything that comes from an animal here, but who needs meat when you can have some of the best, cheese layered, veg nachos in the city?  The staff alone is as hipstery as they come. #HipsterAF

2. Revolver

Another popular cafe, Revolver offers ethical and fair-trade brewed coffee (make sure you order the espresso and any one of their baked goods to go with it) and there’s nothing more hip than ethically-sourced coffee.

1. Shameful Tiki Room 

All of the fun, and none of the shame at the Shameful Tiki Room!  Warning: You’ll go in sober, but you definitely won’t come out sober.
