Last weekend I had the pleasure of enjoying some dishes and cocktails from Vancouver's newest, largest plant-based restaurant.

The stunning restaurant, called Nightshade, is located in the heart of Yaletown, which is a super cool neighbourhood in the city.

So much to do, so little time. Sigh... doesn't that pretty much sum up the whole semester? Actually wait nvm, that pretty much sums up every. single. day. And when you're a student, you chill for like a sec and before you know it your six midterms behind and a hundred assignments away from semester break. It's worse right now too cause we're halfway through the semester, which means midterms after midterms. 

But don't worry Vancouverites, we got you. We know that on top of school, work, sports, extracurriculars, volunteering, campus clubs, and a significant other, you also need to fit in a social life. Because as The Spice Girls say, friendship never ends! But when it can feel impossible, we're here to tell you mission impossible can be achieved.

If you've frequented Yaletown at all this passed summer, you probably know this already. But if you haven't, let us give you the update. There's a sexy AF restaurant and bar lounge in Yaletown that serves champagne from a vending machine. Yes, A FREAKING VENDING MACHINE!! It's literally like having champagne on tap...but even better!

Located at what used to be Yaletown's Romer's Burgers, is now Banter Room. This new concept combines the casual, chill vibes of a bar lounge but also the upscale class of a restaurant. The lounge itself is chic, and there's even a circular swing chair on the patio. Banter Room is serving up delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner options, as well as a Happy Hour menu that is legit the best pick-me-up after a long day at work.

It's starting to get gloomy in Vancouver with what feels like 100% rain all the time and grey skies that don't wanna budge. It's officially fall in the city and there's no denying it. But just when you thought all the sun and summertime vibes were gone, a new Yaletown restaurant pops up on your radar.

Located in the sexy and stylish neighbourhood of Yaletown, Fayuca is serving Pacific-Northwest and Mexican fusion cuisine that's bursting with flavour. And how suiting that its location is in Yaletown as the design of this restaurant is definitely bringing some heat.

Vancouver is a beautiful city, but it isn't a particularly large city. It's small enough that when the word gets out about an awesome place to go, within a short time period, you can expect to see tons of people at that place. Hype travels fast in this city, and things to do and places to go quickly become overcrowded and overrated.

Now don't get me wrong, to say a place is overrated is not to say that it's particularly "bad" in any way. I just mean that there are also many other spots that aren't quite as busy and are just as awesome. Whether it's places to grab coffee or to enjoy the Vancouver weather, there are plenty of underrated places that you can visit!
