SUMMER IN PARADISE

Posted By West Five On

There’s nowhere better to take in Vancouver’s legendary summers than sunny, beautiful Kitsilano.

As anyone who has spent some time in Vancouver can attest to, there really isn’t anything quite like a West Coast summer. West Five is located in the heart of the action in Kitsilano, an established, lively neighbourhood more commonly referred to by locals as “Kits”. For summer lovers, Kits has a little bit of everything: diverse restaurants and patios, first-class beaches, outdoor activities galore and of course, Vancouver’s world famous nightly sunsets. With the official first day of summer kicking off on June 21st, here are a few of our favourite ways to spend our summer days in West Five’s lively neighbourhood surroundings.

KITS BEACH

Recently anointed one of the top ten beaches in the world by National Geographic, Kits Beach is a long stretch of sandy coastline in the very heart of Kitsilano. Watch sailboats and stand-up paddleboarders navigate the waves, join in on a spirited beach volleyball match or better yet, just spread out your towel and soak in the rays. For swimming enthusiasts, check out Kits Pool, a world-class salt-water pool over 137 meters in length situated directly on the beach.

GRANVILLE ISLAND

Located a short walk away from West Five, Granville Island is home to Vancouver’s best public market. From premium local food shopping, top-notch restaurants to artisans and galleries, there truly is something for everyone at Granville Island. If you feel like having an adventure, hop on an AquaBus – with multiple stops around False Creek, who knows where you might end up!

KHATSALANO STREET PARTY

Situated on West 4th (Kitsilano’s main street and hub), Khatsalano Street Party is Vancouver’s biggest free music and arts festival, happening annually each mid-July. On July 11th, check out trendy local bands and artists as well as a variety of food options, bustling patios, special activities and licensed beer gardens.

LOCAL PUBLIC EATERY

Any bonafide Kits resident knows that if you want to see and be seen, there’s nothing quite like “The Local”. Situated directly across from Kits Beach, Local Public Eatery is teeming with beach goers, Sunday Funday enthusiasts and just about everything in between. This spot is especially busy during NFL and NHL games – just make sure you head down early to grab a seat.

Neighbourhood Eats

Posted By West Five On

West Five is located in the heart of trendy Kitsilano, a neighbourhood well renowned for its world-class beaches, beautiful people and great restaurants. Here are some of our favourite places to eat, drink and caffeinate just a short walk away from West Five.

 

Trattoria
1850 West 4th Avenue

This community favourite offers pastas, pizzas and traditional Italian fare in a sleek room filled with warm, friendly faces. At Trattoria there’s something for everyone, from businessmen having lunch to families enjoying share plates.

 

Fable
1944 West 4th Avenue

Using only the freshest local ingredients, Fable’s farm-to-table concept has been a hit since the minute it opened. Come for their seasonally-inspired dinners or one of their famously delicious (and mimosa-friendly) brunches.

 

Local Public Eatery
2210 Cornwall Avenue

As it is affectionately known, “The Local” is the place to be on a warm Kits day. Located directly across from the beach, this casual spot is known for its sunny patio, great views and chilled-out vibe. It’s also a fantastic place to watch hockey and football games.

 

Sejuiced
1958 West 4th Avenue

Health-crazed Kits is filled with juice bars and cafes – and Sejuiced was one of the first to embrace this local trend. Check out this spot for smoothies and fresh juice as well as vegetarian-friendly meals and snacks.

 

Forty Ninth Parallel
2198 West 4th Avenue

Forty Ninth Parallel offers flavourful espresso and a variety of high-quality caffeinated beverages in a beautiful, light-filled café. If you’re feeling indulgent, check out their to-die-for doughnuts.

 

Whole Foods
2285 West 4th Avenue

Though it needs no introduction, having Whole Foods close by is certainly an asset. From the salad bar and fresh-made burritos to their selection of organic goods, Whole Foods makes eating well a snap for people on the go.
