National Geographic recently named a few of Vancouver’s top late night places to visit in the city.

The hotspots appeared as part of a late night list of five, which was included in part of their top ten travel tips for the city. While the publication listed some popular must-see places and activities, some were a bit more underground.

For example, a couple of the top late night places are located on Main street, and they may not jump out as the most popular places in the city. They mention the Rickshaw Theatre’s “punk and metal shows” as well as the Biltmore Cabaret’s “indie rock and hip-hop acts.”

What’s more, the publication stated that, “savvy hipsters flock to Main Street’s gritty, authentic music scene.”

They also mention the city’s craft beer scene at Brassneck Brewery and 33 Acres. Of course, there are myriad places to enjoy craft beer in the city, so it is worth noting that these choices stuck out.

Interestingly, they also included one non-alcoholic late night spot on the list. Forty-Ninth Parallel, known for its exquisite coffee selection and mouth-watering doughnuts, was included in the round-up of five.

National Geographic also asserted that Commercial Drive is not only one of, but rather the best, of all Vancouver neighbourhoods.

In addition, they stated that Stanley Park was the most iconic place to visit in the city. Residents may think they know the park inside and out; however, this local gem has long and surprising history. In fact, there are a number of weird facts about the park that you may not know about.
