The best of Van­cou­ver from the city’s art-scene in­sid­ers

“Eat at Ta­cofino Com­mis­sary (2327 E. Hast­ings St.) at night­time, when the hang­ing gar­den comes alive, lit up by a light in­stal­la­tion by Van­cou­ver de­signer Omer Ar­bel.” — Wil Aballe / DI­REC­TOR, WIL ABALLE ART PROJECTS “Duplex (4257 and 4277 Fraser St.) is a new spot run by a group of artists out of their stu­dio space and al­ways worth know­ing about. To eat, go up Fraser Street around King Ed­ward or ex­plore Kingsway.” — El­iz­a­beth Zvonar / ARTIST “The new, re­ally amaz­ing pub­lic gallery in Greater Van­cou­ver is the New Me­dia Gallery (777 Columbia St.). Cu­ra­tors Sarah Joyce and Gor­don Dug­gan are pre­sent­ing smart, world-class ex­hi­bi­tions.” — Laing Brown / DI­REC­TOR, BROWNARTCONSULTING, INC. “Cloud 9 (1400 Rob­son St.) is Van­cou­ver's orig­i­nal ro­tat­ing restau­rant/ bar, and it has the best views in the city. It's slated for de­mo­li­tion in the next year, so it's the last chance for a choco­late mar­tini above the city. Don't eat food there—it's all about the view.” — Shaun Dacey / DI­REC­TOR, RICH­MOND ART GALLERY
