Closed and closing soon: 5 Vancouver restaurants to say goodbye to

Something we do not love? Vancouver restaurant closures. The restaurant industry in Vancouver can be volatile, and – once again – the city’s dining scene has suffered some losses.

Here’s your update on restaurants in and around Vancouver that have recently closed or will do so immediately.


Bishop’s Restaurant

Bishop’s Restaurant in Kitsilano has now officially closed its doors after nearly four decades of business. The iconic restaurant served its last meal on New Year’s Eve after 36 years of operation.

Grimme Dumpling

Ugly Dumpling closed its doors in late December 2021. Restaurant 1590 Commercial Drive opened in 2018 and quickly became a favorite among both locals and visitors.

Swirl Wine Store

The Swirl Wine Store, located at 1185 Mainland Street in Yaletown, closed on December 28, 2021. The store had been offering a large selection of local wines and ciders to customers for 17 years.

After more than 25 years of operation, the 209 E 6th Avenue eatery will offer its final service on Friday, January 14, 2022. However, this is not all bad news, as the owners have hinted that there are some exciting ideas on the way to the space, and they plan to announce them “very soon.”

Storm Crow Alehouse

Alehouse is the sister place to Storm Crow Tavern, which closed its doors on Commercial Drive in 2020 after 7+ years of operation. Owners mentioned the pandemic and the SkyTrain construction as the main challenges that led to the decision to close The Alehouse. Its last day will be January 16, 2022.
