best of kitsilano neighbourhood according to georgia straight


There were a ton of Kitsilano award winners in the Georgia Straights 2013 Best of Vancouver Annual Vote (in this week’s edition). This list once again proves that Kitsilano has more than meets the eye. We’re not going to name them all, but here is a random selection of the favourites..

Best Music Store:

Zulu Records. Well deserving, this locale has the most knowledgable staff, a great selection and sells concert tickets. Every music fiend already know about this place.

Best Restaurant in which to Dine Naked:

Dark Table in Kitsilano! I haven’t had the honour of trying it, but the concept it very cool.

Best Animal Hospital:

Cypress Street Animal Hospital (at Cornwall). For all the Kitsilano Pet Lovers out there, it’s nice to know that one of the best isn’t too far away. If you’re looking for a pet friendly condo in Kitsilano, take a look at the current listings.

Best Place to Score a Slice of Pie:

Aphrodites Pie Shoppe. A Kitsilano Legend still earning high marks from Vancouver residents, and for good reason. With the holiday season  coming up, I’m sure I’ll be indulging in this goodness soon!

Best Demonstration of the Thriving Local Music Scene:

Khatsalano! Music + Festival. It was a great day, with great bands and lots of community spirit.

Best Cheese Store:

Our very own Les Amis du Fromage (I love how their website is!), the mecca for all things cheese and appetizers. Another solid holiday party planning destination.

There are tons of good places to go in Kitsilano to enjoy (and I don’t just mean the beach!). Check out our list of the “Best of Kitsilano” and let us know if you have any questions about real estate in each part of the neighbourhood.

Go check out some of these places this weekend, after visiting the Kitsilano Open Houses during the day!
