Gastown is my favourite neighbourhood in Vancouver. From the day I moved to Vancouver I always knew I wanted to live there. I love the cobblestone roads and the brick buildings. I don't love the high price of rent or that it costs $8 for a beer at a local bar. The good news is there are many bars that offer awesome drink specials daily to help you get a little tipsy when the mood strikes!
Wether your looking to take a date out to a nice place or you're just in for a good time with some friends, this list has you covered. From sit down restaurants with amazing views to dingy back alley bars, these places are easy on the wallet and all guarantee a good time!
If you're looking to celebrate this weekend but it ain't pay day yet, check out these 8 cheap places to drink in Gastown:

This place a great spot if you're looking to share some quick and delicious food paired with a few well priced drinks.

The Diamond // 6 Powell St
One of my personal favourite places to drink in Gastown. Located above Bill's Confectionary in the heart of Gastown, making the view one of the best in Gastown. Bottles and cans of beer start at $4. Their cocktails are a little more pricey but totally worth it.

The Cambie // 310 Cambie St
One of Vancouvers best dive bars. If you live in Vancouver and you have never been here I would be shocked. Home to one of Vancouvers few hostels and probably the cheapest drinking in Gastown, you are certain to run into a few characters at The Cambie.
