Notable’s Best of 2013: Vancouver

Since the year deserves a proper farewell, we’ve rounded up the Best of Notable 2013 for you to have a look back at the year that was. Don’t linger in the past too long, though, ’cause we can’t wait to start turning 2014 into our most memorable year yet! And we hope you’ll be right there with us making it happen. Here’s what went down in Vancouver…

Vancouver saw the opening of a notable new spot to dine seemingly on a weekly basis – something we’re definitely not complaining about. From top West Coast seafood establishments to swanky restos and everything in between, 2013 certainly was a foodie’s dream. 

The Top 5:

The Stable House Bistro
Chewie’s Steam & Oyster Bar
Tappo Restobar
The Parlour Restaurant
Cactus Club Coal Harbour

The nightlife scene in the city went up a couple notches this year with the addition of beer halls, distilleries, perfect places to catch the game and red carpet-worthy lounges. Here’s where we spent our time after work…

The Top 6:

The Emerald
The Wine Bar (TWB)
The Long Table Distillery
CRAFT Beer Market
Cabana Lounge
The Blackbird

Our social calendar was a revolving door of options on any given night of the week, ranging from the charitable type to swanky soirees and celebrations of the culinary kind. It was a challenge to divide our RSVPs, but we definitely made the most of the city’s scene.

The Top 7:

Diner en Blanc (Victoria
Deighton Cup Weekend at the Races
Diner en Blanc (Vancouver)
Dine Out Vancouver 2013
Projecting Change Film Festival 2013
