Where do the cool people go in Vancouver?

Granville asks in-the-know locals for their go-to eat, drink and be merry spots in our weekly “It People” series

Kris Krüg, social media documentarian, writer, web strategist and jack-of-all-trades:


I like Nuba for the yummy, original, real food. It has a great bartender who makes creative cocktails, often classics with a modern West Coast twist.


The Greedy Pig is low-key and private—it can’t be seen from the street. Great whiskey cocktails, hearty meaty meals and friendly and flexible staff and owners.


Then there’s Guu: lively, friendly, tasty. An izakaya with a ton of heart and good energy.
