Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and
has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs
and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the
city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday
nights are the most popular and lively, with young
revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping
the party going until late. Granville Street, being
mostly open to pedestrian-only traffic, has a healthy
social life along its main thoroughfares, even outside
of its cafes and pubs, spilling onto the sidewalks.
The locals are chatty, the shops at its expansive
Pacific Centre Mall are trendy, and the whole area
seems to be on a sugar rush: in a good way. Exuberance
and camaraderie classify this neighbourhood.
