West End has potential, but is currently a disgusting and dirty place to live, particularly at the corner of Davey and Denman. There is human and dog feces in every car park and park, you can hardly walk down a street without getting high off 2nd hand pot smoke, and the constant sound of sirens is a recipe for poor quality of living.
Real reform is required to invest in upgraded sidewalks and street facing infrastructure.
Take a leaf out of Kelowna's Main Street and have a crack at improving West End at all levels of Government. But more often than not the government would prefer people to take the crack.

August 9th, Canada welcomed Americans (hope they won't be sorry) and in we came. From our Marriott Pinnacle hotel location, Stanley Park was prominently (as always) high on our to-do list (as always). But this time, we veered left at Lost Lagoon to meander up the seawall's coastline, following our noses, like usual. Not that anyone ever got in trouble doing that (hah!)

If a visitor wanted to pinpoint the parameters of the West End, those landmarks/streets would be (roughly) Pacific Street which follows the coast, Stanley Park (Chilco Street), Georgia Street, and Burrard Street.

Please note here that, although Denman Street/Village has its own identity or character, it is really a subsection of the bigger West End. At the end of West End furthest from Stanley Park, Burrard Street is one of the two routes to Granville Island as well as being a dividing line between "Downtown" (i.e. CBD) of Vancouver and the diverse West End.

Coal Harbor defines its eastern line along Georgia Street.

Having put the West End neatly into a (physical) box, the out-of-the-box things that make it so special are its diversity and ethnic character and family orientation and variety of housing stock.

It is our understanding that West End/Denman Street Village is a mecca for murals and, next visit next year, that will be our quest. Street art and public murals are the poor man's art. It speaks to us. All that is art worthy is not always found in a museum.

Been almost two years since I've been down this way. Interesting to see how rapidly things change - especially vertically. This is essentially a residential neighbourhood.
Located between Stanley Park to the north and the Central Business District to the east, small wonder there is a high demand for residential space. However, lovers of history and old buildings will be pleased to know some original houses still remain to spice up the encroaching high rises. Maybe take a walk around Nelson Park to see what I mean.

I have to agree with the general sentiment of earlier reviewers: The West End neighbourhood highlights and epitomizes some of the best of Vancouver. Nestled up against the city’s bustling downtown core and financial district, the West End is bordered on the west by Denman Street, West Georgia Street to the north, Burrard Street on the east and Pacific Avenue to the south; though, for many a local, the West End basically encompasses everything from Burrard Street to Stanley Park. As such, mere area and geography alone ensures that you can experience a lot of what makes “Vancouver” what it is by exploring this rich and diverse neighbourhood.

First and foremost, what I like about Vancouver’s West End is its welcoming and warm environment. This is perhaps illustrated no better than through its diverse social and multicultural makeup. As you amble along the streets that make up this area, you’ll come across chatty senior citizens, young professionals (yuppies), immigrants, transient students and carefree spirits. They all intermingle and proudly illustrate the power of Canada’s cultural mosaic. It really is quite heartwarming and offers a stark contrast to other parts of the city.

Second, the West End is home to some of Vancouver’s best eats. Whether you’re looking for casual pub fare, healthy bites, fresh seafood, high end cuisine or sweet treats, you can find all of that and more in the West End. Denman Street, in particular, is where one may want to go for a bit of international flair and flavour. Recognized as the West End’s busiest area (though I’d argue Robson is busier), Denman carries a good mix of international establishments, including African, French, Italian, Russian, Japanese, Korean, Greek – I could go on. The point is Denman has flavours that are entirely absent from other areas of Vancouver. The Banana Leaf, Damso, Kintaro Ramen and ¾ Full Café immediately comes to mind. Not to be outdone, Robson Street – world-renowned for its shopping – is also home to a mix of lowbrow and high-end eats, including Hokkaido Ramen, CinCin and Castella. Meanwhile, Davie Street has gained a well-deserved reputation for its fun nighttime bars and clubs. Outside of the three main streets of the West End, I’d highly recommend checking out the casual, upbeat Cactus Club on Beach Avenue (home to the most beautiful servers); the always impressive Le Crocodile, which serves up classic French cuisine, on Burrard; and Sushi Bar Maumi on Bute for beautifully presented, innovative sushi snack treats. While I’m sad that the Boathouse Restaurant on English Bay went the way of the dodo in late 2018, there’s still more than enough culinary variety here for everybody. Indeed, if one wanted to summarize the West End’s restaurant offerings, I think it would be best to call it a gastronomic bouillabaisse exactly because it offers a bit of everything.

Third, the West End features some of Vancouver’s best shopping. Denman Street contains a few unique independent shops and the community-oriented Denman Place Mall; however, for those wanting to get a real fix and feel for the city’s materialist spirit, nothing can beat Robson Street. There’s everything here from the high end boutique to the major chain store. Roots Canada, Lululemon, Daniel Chocolate, Indigo Books, MUJI and Aritzia are just some of the shops and stores that dot this dynamic street. Walk along here and you’ll quickly find out why they call Robson “Vancouver’s Runway” (for more on Robson Street, see my earlier review on this site).

Fourth, did I mention that the West End is warm and welcoming? Besides the mixed demographics already noted above, the West End and, in particular, Davie Street, is recognized as Vancouver’s LGBTQ+ hub. With its Instagram-worthy rainbow crosswalks, Davie Village has become a bastion of inclusion and integral to the West End’s cultural and social identity. It is no wonder the Vancouver Pride Parade is hosted here.

Finally, Vancouver’s West End is just a physically beautiful place. The tree-lined streets, combined with some of the best beaches, make this area ultra-modern yet traditional at the same time. Walking along English Bay, you can see and observe the city’s famous Inukshuk, which inspired the 2010 Olympic logo. Similarly, Sunset Beach is home to the eye-catching “Engagement” sculpture. Indeed, the beaches cause people from all walks of life to gravitate towards the West End. Thus, people-watching is always fun to do. I miss witnessing the beautiful sunsets while dining on exceptional seafood at the Boathouse Restaurant’s English Bay location.

In short, how could anyone not rate the West End an easy 5-star experience? It demonstrates some of Vancouver’s best traits and characteristics. It’s modern, yet contains architectural elements of the city’s past; it’s deeply multicultural and inclusive; the shopping and eating is as diverse as the people who call this area home; and it has some spectacular natural scenery. I’d even suggest it is “essential Vancouver.”

バンクーバーに滞在中は度々このエリアを訪れました。日本食のお店が多いこと、水と緑が豊かで中心地に比べて落ち着いていることなどから住むのにも人気の場所となっています。

バンクーバーのダウンタウン地区の西側に広がるウエストエンド地区のロブソン通り沿いには日本人街のような場所があり、日本料理店などが複数ありました。落ち着いた雰囲気の住宅街で、夜にこの辺りにきても特に危険な雰囲気は感じませんでした。

Just had a brief time when we came to town this time, as we have family located here. Again another location where you can enjoy few restaurants.

Saturday mornings during the summer enjoy the West End farmers market. Plenty of fruit and vegetable vendors (many organic) along with bread, soup, crepes, coffee, baked goods, perogies, honey & jams, cheeses, and entertainment - and it's all free. Every year when we come to Vancouver we are committed to buying local and fresh each Saturday from this market. It's a fun destination.

Our hotel was in the West End, near False Creek. We ate most of our meals here in various restaurants, lots to choose from. Went to the museums and strolled along the many shopping areas. it's now full of modern high rises, very dense and very much a city landscape. I love it.
