Grocery or Supermarket
“This is a relatively low priced grocery store compared to the rest of downtown. It's open until 3 am everyday (I know, the convenience of living downtown right?). I get basically all of my groceries here, one stop shop for everything. They have one of the biggest selections downtown and also have health items for those on specific diets! :)”

Pub
$$
“You simply can’t beat Darby’s rooftop patio during this nice sunny weather, and it’s even better with a refreshing beer. Darby’s has 32 craft, imported, and domestic beers on tap, so there’s plenty of choice. Enjoy the consistently good 33 Acres beer on special on Sunday nights, specifically the Echo beer – a seasonal blonde India Session Ale, with notes of citrus and pine, and a smooth finish. Surprisingly good place to grab a drink but also a bite. The food here is pretty much pub food - think burgers, fries, and wings. They have daily specials as well as after hours (10 pm) specials. Plenty of seats inside and on the patio. I would recommend the burgers. ”

“Steamworks has been a convenient place to grab a bite with a local beer for a long time! Right next to the skytrain so you can easily plan your evening without finding a designated driver! The food here isn't amazing but it's not bad and the drinks are fine. Prices are average as well. You come here to have a few drinks with friends and not expect too much. The place is huge and it's certain a plus that they have a pool table as we love playing pool while we have a few drinks. Been here multiple times over the years and have never really had a bad experience”
