Narrow Lounge information
Push through the door on 3rd Ave – the red light tells you if it's open or not – then descend into Vancouver's coolest small bar. Little bigger than a train carriage and lined with junk-shop pictures, it's an atmospheric nook that always feels like midnight. In summer, try the hidden tiki bar out back for a Dark & Stormy or three.
Mac-and-cheese is the fuel-up dish of choice here, or you can just have another whiskey and hope for the best – but if the mangy bear head on the wall stars talking to you, it's probably time to call it a night. Popular with Main St hipsters, this is a great location to spot local lads and their attempts to grow full-on Noah beards.
