Yaletown is Vancouver’s trendy and upscale renovated warehouse district. This fresh urban neighbourhood is just an easy walk from the centre of downtown Vancouver or a quick ferry ride from Granville Island. Yaletown’s converted heritage buildings are home to some of city’s top fashion and design shops, as well as cutting edge restaurants and bars. Old loading docks act as giant sidewalks and create a unique setting for wandering, shopping, or lounging at one of the many outdoor patios.

Not much to see during the day, but a great place at night with lots of interesting bars and restaurants.

Small and close to Yale sky train station. Here you can walk around, have lunch, there are lots of small shops, get your hair blow dried, and then for dinner go to fine dining or yaletown brewery It will keep you busy all day. The Keg is great too.

The former industrial warehouse district of Yaletown is indeed now Uptown. Mostly urban high-rise condo's and their support businesses (groceries, pet stores, and restaurants). It does include part of a great waterfront seawalk around False-Creek (another story). Well worthy of a day stroll, outdoor pub visit etc.

Yaletown has exploded over the past years. It's now full of high-rise apartments with more going up all the time. The nice thing is there are also parks and lots of open space, as well as restaurants and coffee shops in the area.

This is another great place to experience in the downtown area. If you like shopping or dining this great place to come to. If anything just go for a nice casual stroll during anytime of the year!

This former rail terminal and warehouse district got transformed during the 1990s to what has become perhaps the hippest area in Vancouver. High-rise glass condos cluster together while myriad restaurants, from fast food to world-class; upscale boutiques; and beckoning small parks spread below. I always see a mostly young crowd on the streets and in the shops. During my most... More

On a recent trip to Vancouver, Yaletown turned out to be a nice surprise. If you’re looking for shopping, restaurants, bars, or just a cup of coffee, wander down to Yaletown. On a rainy Saturday morning, we enjoyed the walk around this area. We strolled all through Yaletown on our way to catch the Aquabus to Granville Island.

Staying in Yaletown & False Creek North

Neighbourhood Profile
Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row' might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant, stylish hotspot with a view. Its youthful vibe owes to the many young families and young professionals who live there, bolstering nightlife and restaurant variety along its cobbled streets. It is the flagship neighbourhood for modern revitalization, and the It-Spot for boutique hotels and modish eats.
