Uptown Village

Uptown Village has a vibe all its own. Visitors to its shady, tree-lined streets will notice a unique combination of close-knit community spirit, eclectic shops, and original eateries.

Situated just north of the downtown core, Uptown Village includes the historic neighborhoods of Arnada, Carter Park, Hough, and Shumway. Main Street acts as an artery connecting the communities, and the majority of businesses can be found concentrated around the thoroughfare. In the summer, the street comes alive with the roaring sounds of old school cars during the popular Cruise the Couve.

Start your exploration with a visit to the Uptown Food Cart Village at Trap Door Brewery. One of Vancouver’s most popular spots for food trucks, the shared patio space includes tacos and Thai food. Neighboring Bleu Door Bakery draws brunch lines with its Parisian breads and breakfast plates. Down the street, similarly European-inspired, La Bottega continues to impress guests with its Old World pasta, cured meats, and wine selection.

Local shopping finds are plentiful in Uptown; the wares run the gauntlet from hand-carved wood furnishings and repurposed antiques to stylish clothing and soaps made with local beers. Fuel your shopping trip with a dose of caffeine from the hip Relevant Coffee or the whimsical Mon Ami.
