This historic district, which is where you may find the true origins of Vancouver, is home to many of the city's chicest restaurants, along with funkier venues. Art galleries, gift shops, antique stores, jazz halls, and nightclubs line the cobblestone streets.
The Pacific Centre
This Vancouver downtown shopping mecca offers over 165 shops including two large department stores - The Bay, Sears, and Holt Renfrew.
Vancouver's answer to Rodeo Drive is located a few short blocks from Fairmont Pacific Rim. In this trendy Vancouver shopping district you will enjoy designer shops such as Tiffany & Co, Hermes, Louis Vuittton, Gucci, Betsey Johnson, St. John's as well as numerous sidewalk cafes, restaurants and bars.
Just over the Granville Street Bridge, this 10-block stretch of Granville Street--from Sixth Avenue up to 16th Avenue--is where Vancouver's old-money enclave of Shaughnessy comes to shop. Classic and expensive men's and women's clothiers, and houseware and furniture boutiques predominate. This Vancouver downtown shopping area is also the heart of the city's gallery row.
Just a few minutes away from the doorstep of Fairmont Pacific Rim, the young, well-heeled and hip are taking Vancouver, BC shopping to a whole new level. In place of the area's former warehouses you will now find a lively digital district filled with stylish brick and beam offices, lofts, boutiques, trendy dining, clubs and microbrewery pubs.
