Much-loved pie shop, Lime and Moon Pie Company, has permanently closed its Downtown Vancouver shop. The Yaletown eatery, located at 1066 Mainland Street, quietly closed its doors earlier this summer. Known for their delicious sweet and savoury pies, the purveyor still operates their OG location on Bowen Island and told Vancouver customers how they can still get a taste of their addictive pies while they search for a bigger space in the city.

While it’s not technically closed, big changes have gone down at Parq Vancouver’s bougie third floor dim sum spot 1886, as it’s no longer open to the public for a la carte dining. The eatery, known for its addition of all-you-can-eat dim sum and all-velvet-everything decor, recently changed things up and is now only available as an event and meeting space – so don’t show up on the fly.

In an email, Drai’s VIP Service Manager Dave Brown said that the club’s last day of business was on September 4, 2018. “After that date, Drai’s Vancouver will no longer be offering the leading nightlife experience in Vancouver.”

Promising to bring Vancouver a Las Vegas-style party experience, Drai’s Vancouver was the nightclub’s first Canadian location.

The pizza joint, known for its stellar al taglio offerings, first opened in Gastown at 309 Carrall Street in 2017 before eventually moving to 6045 University Boulevard at UBC to make room for Di Beppe, an eatery from the same group just about a year later.
