When Night Falls, Uncork or Shake It up at These Vancouver Lounges

When you don't want to commit to dinner or going to a bar, a lounge is the perfect in-between. Let these Vancouver lounges offer you a space to relax, kick back, and enjoy a few drinks.

In the mood for live music, well-crafted cocktails and a chic atmosphere? Head over to the Fairmont Pacific Rim's Lobby Lounge and RawBar. The cocktail list is chock-full of tempting options, making it hard to choose. It's great after work or later in the evening for drink and a bite to eat. Depending on the night, things can get pretty lively here.

For something way more casual, head to The Narrow Lounge on Main St. As the name suggests, the space is... well, narrow. The dim lighting, fuss-free drinks, and laid back atmosphere keep locals coming back. It can get pretty busy in there and it's better suited for smaller groups.

Urban vibes, craft cocktails and a dimly-lit atmosphere make the Keefer Bar a popular haunt in Vancouver. Their apothecary-style cocktails use a lot of their own house-made tinctures so your tastebuds are in for something different. Located in Vancouver's Chinatown, you're just a short walk from Gastown's nightlife district.

Dessert and champagne? Gastown's Mosquito brings something different to Vancouver's nightlife scene. Not only are the desserts beautiful to look at they're incredibly delicious, especially when washed down with a glass of crisp champagne. 

Whatever you're in the mood for, one of these ten best lounges will satisfy.
