Whether your go-to spot has started feeling a little less special or you’re just craving something new, Vancouver’s South Granville neighbourhood is full of awesome date-worthy destinations that will suit pretty much any relationship status (or appetite). So if you’re looking for that perfect casual get-to-know-each-other spot, or something a little extra, here are three date destinations you can try out this weekend in Vancouver.
JamJar - 1488 W 11th Ave
Looking to spice things up? Jamjar tells a story of communal living and sharing food as a means to connect. The idea originates from the heart of Lebanese culture based on hospitality and generosity. At Jamjar you can expect an elevated take on traditional, folk Lebanese food, including Halloumi, Hummus, Grilled Meats and absolutely excellent Olive Oil. It’s decadent, it’s sumptuous and it’s the perfect start to a romantic evening out. Food is meant to be shared with the ones you love and this is definitely a great place to do just that.
Goodge Place - 1523 W 8th Ave
This might just be the perfect date spot for busy couples in Vancouver! Goodge Place is a lifestyle boutique that boasts extraordinary gifts, homewares, books, flowers and the Goodge Cafe, which features an elegant selection of Milano Coffee and and Beaucoup Baked Goods. Goodge Place’s curated selection of house and home brands allows couples to indulge in shared daydreams of a beautiful homelife complete with exquisite decor and furnishings, all while enjoying some food, coffee and, most importantly, time together.
Small Victory - 3070 Granville St
At Small Victory you can savour freshly baked treats and fantastic coffee, artisan baked treats, plus breakfast and lunch dishes, making this the perfect low-key date spot for people just getting to know each other. With a few over-the-top sweets, this is a great destination for first dates, as anyone with the word “foodie” in their dating profile is sure to enjoy it. If the date’s going great, Small Victory also makes for a nice starting point for an afternoon spent strolling the shops, boutiques, restaurants and cocktail bars peppered through the South Granville neighbourhood. So enjoy your caffeine buzz (or are those just butterflies in your stomach?) and see where the day takes you!
Centrally located uptown from the south end of the Granville Street Bridge to 16th Avenue, Vancouver's stylish South Granville neighbourhood boasts some of the best lifestyle experiences in town.
