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

Irish Bars


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.


Opus Bar


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.

The Pint


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.

Bar None


A nightclub featuring DJs spinning the hottest tunes for you to rock out to, and hopefully meet someone new. It’s a great spot to hit up after dinner for some drinks, dancing and socializing with a different crowd. Check it out at 1222 Hamilton Street.

Library Square Public House


This hidden gem is a must if you’re looking to get out there and have a good time. Only two blocks away from BC Place and Rogers Arena, it’s a good spot to hit after a game or concert. Find the lively hangout at 300 West Georgia Street.


The Portside Pub


A Gastown hotspot with a fun atmosphere for you to meet new people in a laid-back setting. Sip on some craft beers and enjoy the company of others at 7 Alexander Street.

The Roxy


A known spot for singles to flock, enjoy sipping on some drinks and taking in music from local bands as you (hopefully) meet other singles you can hang out with. Check it out at 512-929 Granville Street.
