Single and ready to mingle? When you’re tired of swiping right then try to meet someone the old-fashioned way…at a bar.
Vancouver has lots of bars but some aren’t too great for meeting new people as groups tend to stay together at their tables and are a little more anti-social.
But if you want to put yourself out there a bit more, these bars are a must.
Best Bars To Meet Someone
If you’ve been to Ireland, you know it’s a lot easier to strike up a conversation with someone because everyone is super friendly and social. Therefore, heading to one of the city’s many Irish bars is a good place to start. Try the Blarney Stone, Dubh Linn Gate or The Morrissey.
Lots of singles frequent this joint in the heart of Yaletown at 350 Davie Street. Because it’s part of a hotel, it’s a great place to meet new people. Enjoy a selection of cocktails, nibbles and an ever-changing list of DJs.
This boisterous bar is a good place to go for a pint, get some wings and take in the game. It can get rowdy here so it’s easier to meet someone in a more laid-back setting where everyone is just having a good time.
