11 Places To Go Drinking In Vancouver If You’re Broke AF

It's old news that Vancouver is an expensive city to drink in, that’s why we all have such good pre-drinking skills. For those of you born before 1995 you might not remember Vancouver without a happy hour. It was as recent as 2014 that BC finally opened its doors to the idea of our beloved 5-7pm liquid dinners.

The good news is happy hour isn’t the only time to get cheap drinks in Vancouver and luckily you don’t have to go to a really sketchy bar in the DTES either. Although I encourage you to end up at Funky Winker Beans at least once in your life.

So if your looking for something to do tonight but don’t want to break the bank, I suggest you take a look at this list of 11 Vancouver bars that will get you drunk for cheap!
