Top 5 Bars in Kitsilano


If you’re feeling a little cheated by the summer this year, you’re not alone. It never really felt like it got going until mid-August, and as soon as we got used to morning coffees in the garden, afternoon swims in the sea and evenings at the beach, it was the first week of September and things seemed a little greyer.

But… the good news is the forecast is looking up. We’re hearing we could be enjoying an Indian Summer over the few weeks.

In Kits, we are lucky to have a fantastic choice of bars, pubs, and restaurants that cater for all tastes, and weathers. So in anticipation for the Indian Summer, here are our Top 5 Bars in Kitsilano.

Local Public Eatery

Not only one of the best bars in Kitsilano, but one of the best in Vancouver. Local is located directly across from Kits Beach, so it’s the perfect place for fresh air and people-watching.

What we say: Book a table outside when the weather is good! It gets busy.
What they say: “…kind of like your living room, with better food and people to serve you beer.”

The Kitchen Table

One of the newest restaurants and bars in Kitsilano, The Kitchen Table is fast becoming a neighbourhood favourite.

Sunset Grill

Something of an institution here in Kits, the Sunset Grill has been a go-to place since 1989. Just a block from Kits Beach, it’s a fantastic spot after an afternoon lazing by the water.

Some say dive bar; some say neighbourhood pub. The Fringe Café is one of the oldest bars on West Broadway – they will be celebrating their 27th anniversary this next year.
