Hot ‘Hoods: Lower Lonsdale

The hustle and bustle of dockside living was once connected to shipyard workers, pubs for weary sailors and storefronts stocked with fishing gear. These days, Lower Lonsdale in North Vancouver is still a destination, but one with a new chic narrative.

Small businesses thrive in the close-knit community that spans from the waterfront, north to Keith Road, and from St. Davids Avenue to Berwicke Avenue. Whether it’s newer businesses like The Juicery Co.—a family-owned cold-pressed juice and nut mylk shop—and the popular Finch x Barley, which entertains with weekly musical acts and serves up mouth-watering food and delicious cocktails, or more established ones like Skoah and the always popular Thomas Haas Chocolates & Patisserie, there is no shortage of friendly, vibrant spots to catch up with friends and family.

Finding the motivation to head out for a night on the town isn’t difficult with the great restaurants and pubs sprinkled throughout the area. Pier 7 Restaurant + Bar, located just off Shipbuilders Square,  offers a great selection of West Coast fare, and an intimate space to enjoy stunning sunsets and unparalleled views of Vancouver’s skyline. Also, Tap & Barrel is opening its third location later this year right at The Shipyards, which means the list of places where you can take advantage of life on the waterfront continues to grow.

With another West Coast summer just around the corner, Lonsdale Quay Market, which first opened its doors in 1986, will once again be a popular gathering space for people to enjoy a day visiting the 80 local vendors, retail shops and artisans that make the Market a must-visit destination for residents and visitors alike. 

The perfect blend of past and present, the breathtaking views and the many amenities that cater to all lifestyles, make Lower Lonsdale a unique waterfront destination.
