Crosstown

Between Gastown, downtown, Chinatown and Yaletown, the blocks that make up Crosstown—bordered by Beatty St., Carrall St., Dunsmuir St. and Pender St.—provide a central location with plenty of great amenities. Within the area is International Village Mall, home to Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas; Yokoyaya123, a cousin of ultra-convenient Japanese $2-store Daiso; and popular Asian supermarket chain T&T. Food options include relaxed-luxe Belgian bistro Chambar and the craft-beer-focused Devil’s Elbow.
