An ever-friendly hangout, the tiny Fringe is a reminder of Kitsilano's counterculture heritage, from its funky, memorabilia-lined walls to its chatty, bar-propping regulars. Russell Brewing beers – here called Ugly Boy Lager and Dirty Girl Pale Ale – are usually on special, but there's also a surprising array of international bottled brews that usually includes everything from Tyskie to Tuborg.

If you're hungry, try the Sherpa's Pie, the best of several hearty house-cooked meals on the one-page menu. And by the way, you can't dial out on the rotary phone lamps on the tables, no matter how drunk you are. This is a great spot to meat the locals, you'll overhear plenty of gossip about local house prices and the bohemian good old days.
