Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy counter-culture. Straddling the line between sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups, and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit of self-aware graffiti, Commercial Drive has resisted gentrification in favor of continuing to build a thriving den of affordable multiculturalism. Once known as Vancouver's "Little Italy," it has also been the immigration point for Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Portuguese to the city. The resulting hodgepodge makes for poetry readings in espresso cafes, social debates in early-open bakeries, and eco-activism posters pinned up in the many multi-ethnic markets in the area. Commercial Drive is where you go to feel like a local, and if you have them, bring the kids – The Drive has a number of bookshops, toy stores, and attractions to get them involved too.

We wanted to see some theatre and so we scootched around the net and found The Cultch and their performance that night was Creeps - it was written in 1971 and explores abilities within the disabled community - at a time when we still used terms like Spastic! To be clear - we had no idea what the play was...

We haven't bowled much in recent years (since 10 pin houses went out of vogue). I remember when Grandview Lanes first opened it's doors in the late 1940's. I understand that the facility is still owned and operated by the 3rd generation of the businesses founder. An added attraction is that food and beverages are available in house.
From the time you walk in the door the owners and staff make you feel so at home. The atmosphere was very romantic but casual and ethnic. The food was some of the best we have ever had! We highly recommend taking time to visit this restaurant!!!!!! Can’t wait to go back!
Dined at Kishimoto on the recommendation of an international magazine and were not disappointed to say the least aside from the ambiance or lack thereof and non-reservation policy. The superb Japanese cuisine overshadowed these malevolent issues.
Arriving at the establishment at 6:30 pm on a Sunday night, our group of four waited close to one and a half hours to...
It's been awhile since I've had Indian food this tasty. Rich, delicious, just the right levels of spice (you can choose - we got our vindaloo HOT, and the butter chicken medium). Small place, good service, but it is the food that is the star here. We loved the lamb - it was rich, not just spicy, and the meat...
We ate there on a Tuesday evening. It started off with only us there, which worried me, but soon filled up. The decor is interesting and beautiful- lots of water features and artwork. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. I highly recommend the lamb saag and the daal. Both delightful! We'll be back
Excellent food along with a magnificent selection of whisky. I really appreciated the ocean wise, organic, local and vegan options, it's nice to see a place accomplish many different things well. I would come back here again just for the food! My wife (who hails from Tennessee) loved the Southern dishes :)
