Crosstown is cosily nestled between Downtown, Gastown, and Chinatown - AKA at the epicentre of all things good in Vancouver's city centre. It's also home to a selection of the city's best warehouse loft conversions, with some dating back to the early 1900's. You'll also find some amazing eateries, bars, and cafes along Beatty St, which is why we took it upon ourselves to showcase a few of the area's finest establishments.
Would any feature on Crosstown be complete without a shout-out to the iconic Chambar? We think not! This upscale locale is widely known as one of the best fine-dining spots in the city, and for good reason. Having won an array of awards for its cuisine, wine, service and design Chambar has certainly earned its reputation as the best of the best.
Housed in a beautifully converted heritage space, the interior is clad with beautiful timber beams and ceilings, exquisite artwork, breathtaking light fixtures, and more. In the summer, you can enjoy the beautiful patio complete with greenery and string lights set along the gorgeous exterior brickwork. Serving up Belgian inspired cuisine with a North African influence, everything on the menu from the brunch offerings to dinner entrees look undeniably delicious. Plus, there's an extensive Belgian beer list, a killer cocktail menu, and beautiful bar area making this a great late-night date spot as well. We were, albeit, a little bit full by the time we arrived, but that didn't stop us from enjoying their signature blue cheese poutine. Served up skillet-style with Roquefort blue cheese, an amazing peppercorn infused gravy, and piled high with green onion, parsley, and vincotto, this is the crème de la crème of all things poutine.
