LEVEL Low Down: Best Date Spots in Vancouver

October 15, 2018

Whether it’s a first date or your twentieth anniversary, Vancouver has a number of restaurants and bars that are perfect for your next big date night. From our favourite restaurant to cozy up in to a swanky wine and cheese bar, read on to see our top picks that are sure to make your next date night a hit.





Cozy up at this brick-walled bodega and feel the fall vibes sink in. Indulge in warm, spice-centric dishes, or opt for classic French fare with the moules frites (available in three different flavours!). The extensive list of beers is too long to get through and the sumptuous cocktails compliment each meal perfectly. Come here for a special night out or opt for a morning get-together — this also happens to be one of Vancouver’s most popular brunch spots.





With some of the best cocktails in Vancouver, The Keefer is a hot spot to come for happy hour or aprés dinner. The narrow bar has the perfect ambiance, with candles burning throughout and a cozy seating space you may have to wait in line for. Order one of their signature cocktails and try a few of their share plates. You can’t go wrong with dishes like the steamed buns and spring rolls.


Kissa Tanto



Find Kissa Tanto tucked into the upper level of an old, unassuming building right in the heart of Chinatown. This Instagrammable gem is not to be missed: the unique blend of Japanese and Italian fare makes Kissa a stand-out amongst other Vancouver hotspots. Be bold with your date and try one dish you’d never order because there’s a good chance you’ll love it.


Alibi Room



Alibi Room is the perfect place for after-work drinks. With over 50 beers on tap, you’ll want to try as many as possible by ordering their signature beer flights. If you find yourselves hungry, you’re in luck. The locally sourced menu is full of tried-and-tested options like chilli garlic wings and brussel sprouts with smoked bacon.


Salt Tasting Room



For something a little more upscale than a craft beer bar, venture to Salt Tasting Room in Gastown’s Blood Alley. Famous for their cheese boards and wine flights, this is a good spot to come before dinner. If you’re new to the world of wine and cheese pairings, the servers will gladly give their best recommendations based off your flavour preferences.
