The Vancouver dating scene is not only limited to bars and clubs as there are many other funky places to meet someone special such as art galleries and even grocery stores. Check out one of these hot spots and get out there and start mingling!

The Vancouver Art Gallery is a great place to meet someone that has the same interests as you. It has numerous permanent pieces and always hosts exhibits throughout the year. If you see someone you fancy while looking over works of Monet and Salvador Dali then you can strike up a conversation about a piece they are looking at. Art is a great ice breaker!

Urban Fare is a jazzy gourmet deli and grocery store. It is a great store to wander around, sampling cheeses and other fine delicacies. You can shop for some of the best food items in the world and maybe come across your dream date. If you want to strike up a conversation then choose a gourmet product that they might be looking at and ask them if it is any good. Urban Fare is located at 177 Davie Street in trendy Yaletown.

Ginger 62 is a great place to meet other singles. It is a cozy little lounge bar located at 1219 Granville Street in the entertainment district. It is very popular with hip crowds and serves fancy cocktails. Check out the website at www.ginger62.com for more information about this funky establishment.

The Vancouver seawall is a great way to meet someone special. Walk along the seawall at English Bay and people-watch. If you spot someone you like, ask them for the time or directions and let the conversation flow from there. It is best to attempt this kind of approach in the day time!

Library Square Public House is a great bar for meeting other singles and they always feature dancing and great music. Many singles from the ages of 20 to 45 hang out at this interesting place located at the foot of the Vancouver Public Library.

Robson Street can be a great way to run into the partner of your dreams. Go shopping for the day and browse around. It is always jam-packed with locals and tourists and you just might meet a new love in one of the fancy designer shops such as Gucci or Armani Exchange.

Denman Street is a great place to stroll along and then catch a drink at one of the many cafes and bars. The street stretches from Beach Avenue at English Bay all the way north to Coal Harbour. There are always gorgeous-looking people in the area and you are bound to meet someone amazing!
