This intimate spot is tucked away in Gastown’s Blood Alley, serving a rotating menu of freshly shucked oysters and BC wine. A hidden gem if there ever was one – Is That French offers guests a cozy, warm ambiance and stunning seafood plates that are almost too beautiful to eat. And from 6 to 8 pm every Thursday, you can enjoy some live jazz with your oysters.

La Fabrique St-George

In addition to a weekly lineup of rotating DJs on Thursdays and Fridays, La Fabrique St-George hosts rotating jazz performers every Saturday from 3 to 6 pm, and rotating pianists from 1 to 5 pm on Sundays. Doubling as one of the only wineries in the city, La Fabrique is a great spot for a glass of satisfying vino no matter the season or occasion. Sip on a wine flight from one of their many unique seating nooks or opt for a larger table if you need to get a bit of work done in between.
