Gastown at Night

Gastown, located between the current downtown Vancouver and the Downtown Eastside, was established in 1867, the same year as Canada, by “Gassy Jack” Deighton. The British settler who arrived in 1867, opened the area’s first saloon which was built for him by the local Mill workers, who in return, were served drinks which were prohibited on the Mill property where they worked. Gastown was Vancouver’s first downtown core, and was incorporated as the City of Vancouver on April 6th, 1886. On June 13th of that year, an out-of-control brush-clearing fire (now known as the “Great Vancouver Fire”) burned the city of Vancouver down, losing all but two of its 400+ buildings. Gastown was rebuilt and grew and prospered, but during the Depression through to the early 70’s, Gastown became a stereotypical skid-road area. Citizens concerned with preserving Gastown’s distinctive and historic architecture convinced the provincial government to declare the area a historical site in 1971, protecting its heritage buildings to this day. Today, Gastown is a mix of tourist-oriented businesses, restaurants and nightclubs, making Gastown one of the highlights of the nightlife in the city.
