Coal Harbour

Description from: insidevancouver.ca

Overview + _
Although Coal Harbour is situated in central downtown, the neighbourhood is surprisingly quiet. Starting at Canada Place and stretching towards Stanley Park, Coal Harbour is bordered by Burrard Inlet to the north and West Georgia Street to the south. The district encompasses a fairly even mix of business and residential buildings, and is marked by residents and visitors strolling the seawall, lounging at cozy cafes and restaurants, snapping selfies against a scenic marina backdrop and waving hello to cute-as-buttons harbour seals.
Dining and Nightlife + _
The Coal Harbour seawall is lined by excellent cafes where you can treat yourself to a latte or gelato, as well as waterfront restaurants boasting killer views. Try Cardero’s for casual West Coast fare served in a commanding dining room and ocean-hugging patio; or LIFT Bar Grill View for sophisticated bites and tasty cocktails. The Westin Bayshore’s H Tasting Lounge boasts a picturesque outdoor dining space with sweeping views of Burrard Inlet.

To embark on an eventful evening, visit Fairmont Pacific Rim’s always-buzzing Lobby Lounge, where live music is staged seven days per week; or head upstairs to Botanist, whose Cocktail Lab drinks are guaranteed to rack up your Instagram Likes.
Shopping + _
Small stores that line the seawall around the convention centre are your best bet for neighbourhood souvenir shopping. You can also visit the local liquor store to stock up on your favourite B.C. bevvies before heading home.
Things to See and Do + _
Convention-goers flock around the aesthetically stunning Vancouver Convention Centre, the city’s flagship meeting space – but leisure-seekers shouldn’t shy away. The building is surrounded by thought-provoking public art, bustling cafes, and interpretative plaques sharing the history of Vancouver harbour. The convention centre’s East Building is guarded by the pearly white sails of Canada Place, which house FlyOver Canada, a virtual flight-ride that takes guests on an epic journey across the country. Beside the West Building is Jack Poole Plaza, home to the majestic torch marking the 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games.

Towards Stanley Park, Coal Harbour buzzes with cyclists whizzing along the seawall, yachts and sailboats bobbing in the marina, and horse-drawn carriages rolling into the forest. Indulge in an aerial floatplane journey with Harbour Air, hop aboard a Sea Vancouver high-speed zodiac tour to zip around the harbour and see the city from a fresh perspective, or embark on a seasonal whale watching excursion with Prince of Whales.
