For those hoping for an A-list sighting in Vancouver, there are spots that seem to attract stars in town shooting films (a common occurrence in Hollywood North). So, where to start? Hotel lobby bars are a great place to start (especially high-end properties like the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver and Four-Star Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver). Although luxury hotels maintain the strictest confidence when it comes to their guests, order a glass of wine at the bar and keep your eyes peeled for familiar faces. (And if the celebs never show up, at least you’ve had a great glass of wine.) High-end shopping also seems to attract the big names, so perusing the racks at Holt Renfrew or the luxury shops on Alberni Street are a good bet. For restaurants, try the best names in the city, like the star-rated Hawksworth, the amazing Italian spot Cioppino’s and the lovely Blue Water Café.
