Popular with the Hollywood North set, the list of celebrities who stay here reads like a Who's Who, and even the doormen look like movie stars. If you can't afford to stay here, head over to the Opus Bar for cocktails and pretend you can.

This has long been one of my favourite hotels in Vancouver. Gerard's bar is great for martinis and star-spotting with none of the pretension you might expect.

Amazing food and service. The emphasis is not just on the food but on the whole experience of dining, from the design of the restaurant to the service to the wine list. Try the Octopus bacon and Pan Seared Queen Charlotte Halibut. One word of advice - don't be shy to ask for wine recommendations.

For something a little more upscale, head to Glowbal in Yaletown. Recently voted one of Vancouver's best restaurants, it is Yaletown's place to see and be seen. Open till 1am, the margaritas go down a little too well so be prepared for heavy heads the next day!
