Located south-east of downtown Vancouver along Main Street (between E 5th Avenue and King Ed), this hip and happening neighbourhood is home to some of Vancouver’s best independent boutique shopping (local designers, record stores, book shops, vintage clothing), with eccentric cafes, restaurants, and lounges. Very art school chic and great people watching.

Mount Pleasant is a charming place in Vancouver, lived by local people. Aside Broadway avenue, there's a lot of beautiful wooden houses on trees streets. You'll find also the best shops to buy adventure equipments in the city!

Is a gorgeous part of the City to walk around. Grab a local beverage and people watch. Nice local shops and clean and friendly vibe.

Staying in South Main

Neighbourhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
