The gay community in Vancouver is centred around two distinct areas, Davie Village in the West End and Commercial Drive, known locally as “TheDrive”. The epicentre of the gay scene is the stretch of Davie Street between Burrard and Jervis, known as Davie Village with its cluster of cafes, casual eateries, pubs, nightclubs and shops offering designer clothing and sleek house wares. The beautiful beaches of English Bay and Sunset Beach are popular attractions and located just a few blocks away. Stanley Park, a huge natural reserve and is also a short walk away. Commercial Drive has a thriving gay and lesbian community and is easily accessed by car. This funky, East side neighbourhood is packed with reasonably priced ethnic restaurants, cafes, shops and services. Vancouver's gay and lesbian bar scene has something for everyone! Whether it is the Levi, leather and bear crowd at the Pumpjack or perhaps a quiet cocktail at the Oasis or even dancing all night long at Celebrities, Vancouver's gay bar scene is a diverse one.
