There’s no shortage of things to do in Vancouver this August! It’s been beautifully hot this summer, so we’re torn between soaking in the rays outside, and seeking refuge in the air-conditioning while we take in a show or two. Whichever you choose, this city will keep you entertained!
FOOD CART FESTIVAL
We all know food tastes better when it comes from a truck, but what happens when you want kimchi tacos and your friend wants fried rice balls? You can leg it a few blocks and hit up a couple of different trucks, or head to Vancouver’s weekly Food Cart Fest which brings together 20 of the city’s favourite mobile food-dispensaries in the one spot! Along with filling your belly, you’ll enjoy DJs, a craft market and ping pong.

We’re so excited to be included in this Portland Monthly’s feature, “The Perfect Weekend in Vancouver B.C.” As you’ve probably guessed, we love Portland almost as much as we love Vancouver (which is a bucket-load). It’s a city that does good times, great eats, and all-out delicious weirdness in a way that we can’t get enough of. So we’re especially flattered that Portland Monthly mentioned us as not only a stylish place to lay your head, but also as offering “a taste of Portland funkiness.”READ MORE

Commitment-phobes, you might want to keep scrolling. Sure, we love a one-night stay as much as the next person: the thrill of new sheets, finding where the hairdryer is hidden, discovering a new brand of shampoo. We get it. But there’s nothing like the charms of a long-term hotel relationship where you’re comfortable enough to unpack your bags, plug in all of your gadget chargers, and put your razor in the shower.READ MORE
With our retro-cool rooms and funky courtyard, you’re probably not exactly surprised when we say we’re design nerds here at The Burrard. I mean, if you’re looking for a downtown Vancouver hotel that checks off boxes on your design list, then we have what you’re looking for. So with this in mind, we’re avid readers of Gray Magazine. If you haven’t discovered it yet, it’s devoted to design within the Pacific Northwest, which is to say, Washington, Oregon and British Columbia. Seriously, this magazine gets us hot and bothered over bathroom taps.READ MORE
