Considered one of Vancouver's hottest up-and-coming areas, SoMa (South Main)--Main Street between E 2nd Avenue and E 33rd Avenue--is home to some of the city's best-loved restaurants, bars and neighbourhood nightspots.
One of the most popular nightspots in SoMa, the Cascade Room is a dark, urban bar and restaurant with a formidable array of beers and cocktails, a lively, grown-up bar scene, and a crowded game night on Mondays.
Located at the farthest edges of SoMa--past Broadway on Main and 6th Ave--lives The Foundation, one of Vancouver's best vegetarian and vegan restaurants. One of the city's best cheap eats--two people can satisfyingly share the $13 "Katered Affair"--this is a local treasure for vegetarians and vegans looking for a fresh flavours.
Located on Main and King Edward, Nyala serves regional African cuisine from Ethiopia, Morocco and South Africa--made with fresh Vancouver ingredients--in a cosy, warm, neighbourhood-restaurant atmosphere.
