M8’s urban-tropical vibe finds the sweet spot between two worlds.
“This is not fusion,” warns M8’s website. It’s a dated term, to be sure, but even looking beyond the Vancouver restaurant’s pan-Asian offerings, it’s hard to deny the blending of worlds happening. Located in a primo waterfront location beneath the Burrard Bridge, this Indonesian-jungle-meets-downtown-cool, uh, mash-up is the work of Space Harmony’s Negar Reihani.
“We wanted to create a representation of both worlds—Asian and We...
Key Party is a 40-seat lounge disguised as an accountant's office.
With the vacancy rate at an all-time low, it’s only natural that one would start to look around for more creative housing opportunities. Or at least that’s why I first began taking a closer look at the towers on the Burrard Street Bridge.
I blame the media for sparking the underground-tunnel craze. Those Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles made romping around in the sewers look so sexy and fun, and now there’s an epidemic of UBC students trying to find the campus’s legendary secret network of passageways.

As someone who has slept through Return of the King in theatres twice and had to fact-check just now that that is, in fact, the name of the third Lord of the Rings movie (which one was the king again? Dumbledore?), I admit that I am probably not the target demographic for hobbit architecture.
Will this be how you finally own property in this city?
As you probably assumed from my classy-ass tone, offshore billionaires are the primary demographic for this column (“Write what you know!” they said). So, dear readers, I know you’ve all experienced this age-old problem: you’ve got a cozy little 35-bedroom investment property in Shaughnessy but no one around to dust the chandeliers! And there are a lot of them (one for each bedroom and also one above the toilet, because you’re not a rube...
Finding out you're a dibling can be something of a shock.

When my now-husband told my parents he was going to propose, my mom and dad decided it was finally time to tell me what they’d kept from me for 31 years. My mom sat me down and went through the whole story. “It took a long time for your dad and me to get pregnant…” I already knew that part, so I was trying to figure out where it was going. I knew she wasn’t going to tell me I was adopted—I look exactl...
In a post-legalization world, the cannabis industry is chasing a lucrative new female demographic of wellness enthusiasts—but who ultimately benefits?
Back in 2016, April Pride, an architecture school grad with an entrepreneurial itch, pitched an investor group on her idea of reaching a female audience with a line of design-minded stash canisters. They were less than intrigued. “One of the comments was, ‘A cannabis smoker is a cannabis smoker. I don’t understand why you need to differentiate,...
Though a great bed frame is obviously the hero of the bedroom, the humble nightstand plays a vital role as sidekick.
Hop on a ferry to Galiano for a day trip that’s a world away.
Each dish (and drink pairing) at this Market by Jean-Georges dinner takes inspiration from the Japanese artist's work.
