What people are saying:

It's a very interesting and good old neighborhood to visit. It is a small area in the style of the industrial period. The buildings on both sides are from that time. You can look for some traces of the industrial era. There are many tourists.

Additional Information

Introduction

Don’t be put off. It’s not what you’re thinking… the namesake of this historic district at the northeast end of Vancouver’s downtown was "Gassy" Jack Deighton… and no, it’s not what you’re thinking. “Gassy” was a barkeep and Yorkshire seaman who came to Vancouver with $6, his native wife, and a yellow dog. He started the area’s first saloon in 1867, back when “gassy” meant talkative. Today, this area is a delightful mix of old architecture and a modern social and business scene. You’ll find hip boutiques and cafés in this home of the famous Gastown Steam Clock. The district’s reputation as a favorite drinking spot continues at numerous trendy nightclubs. The cobblestone streets are home of the city’s biggest tech and media firms.
