Best patios on Commercial Drive

Apr 26 2018, 12:13 am

Vancouver’s Commercial Drive area, known affectionately as The Drive, is a celebrated historic corridor in the city, and continues to offer locals and visitors much to see and do.

When the weather warms up, several of The Drive’s top food and drink spots open up their patios so you can really soak up the local scene. Really, this is one of the city’s best ‘hoods when it comes to kicking back on a patio and enjoying the day.
