A three-minute walk away from Vancouver's iconic Gastown neighbourhood is the up-and-coming Railtown District. During business hours the block is bustling as the home to head offices for brands like Herschel and Aritzia as well as numerous creative agencies. Boutique coffee shops and cafes like Railtown Café and local favourite, JJ Bean speak to this creative neighbourhood's coffee culture while Alibi Room and The Settlement Building attracts an after work crowd. The Settlement Building is a 7,700-square-foot heritage building which is home to a collective of business including Vancouver Urban Winery, Belgard Kitchen, and the newly opened Postmark Brewing. Vancouver Magazine's best new restaurant 2015, Ask for Luigi, also sits at the corner of Gore and Railway Street. You'll be able to spot it with the large crowd of patrons waiting outside for a table. More is sure to come to this thriving area.
