Why locals love it

Heartwood is delightfully inclusive. It is a social action hub of East Vancouver, but it also manages to be a bar, restaurant, event venue, and meeting place. The goal is to keep everyone welcome, so you don't have to buy anything to chill here (in fact, there is always a "pay what you can" meal).

Why you should visit it

Heartwood is great for unwinding, enjoying a great event, catching up on your work, or hanging out with a friend (or, a few friends). Check in advance for closing times/events (notably, for afternoons/evenings). There are often tons of neat things happening after the listed closing time, and the cafe transforms into a social justice pub.

Special tip

There is free parking on the streets behind the cafe.

From Tofu festivals to Eid Celebrations, there's a lot going on after hours at Heartwood. Check out the event listings! All are welcome (with age restrictions for some events), and this would also be a great place to contact if you need to arrange a large meeting space - in an inclusive, tolerant and inviting location - in Vancouver.

I have listed this under nightlife, but be aware that there are NOT events every night. However, drinks (are usually) served, and it sometimes stays open quite late.
