Every year, people around the world ask themselves the same, age old question: What do I get Dad for Father’s Day? Even though they might say they don’t want anything (or they might already have everything), we all know that it’s important that dads get their special day too.
So, instead of the usual Father’s Day gift guide, here are 6 Father’s Day experiences in New West for the dad that has everything.
1. Lunch at Re-up BBQ

Feeling Hungry? Visit Re-up BBQ for some finger lickin’ good eats. Located in the River Market, this place is perfect for any carnivore, boasting a menu filled with delicious southern BBQ and fried chicken eats. Dine in at the River Market or opt for take out and enjoy a meal outside in the sunshine.
2. Relaxing pamper day Downtown
We know that spa days are usually reserved for mom, but why not treat dad to a day of pampering? A hot towel shave at Agnes Barbershop or a pedicure at Limina Wellness Lounge will have them feeling refreshed and ready to go, or book a relaxing massage at the WCCMT to help dad de-stress and re-set for the week ahead.
3. Escape room at Pandora’s Locks
Having a hard time getting everyone together to celebrate Father’s Day? What better way is there to force people to spend time together than to lock yourselves in an escape room at Pandora’s Locks! Choose from three rooms and immerse yourself in a hidden world full of puzzle solving fun. With all the mystery and adventure, you’re bound to have fun (even if you don’t end up winning).
4. Beer tasting at Steel and Oak
For those who love to drink, there’s always good beer on tap at Steel & Oak. Pop by and try out a few of New West’s finest brews (which you can also pair it with a charcuterie board if you’re feeling snacky). With a rotating selection of beers on tap, there's always something new to taste!
5. Comedy Show at Lafflines

If Dad’s a real jokester, why not stop by the historic Columbia Theatre for a night of fun and laughs with Lafflines; Metro Vancouver’s Longest running comedy club? Shows run on Friday and Saturday nights, with new comedians every weekend.
Whatever you choose to do with Dad this Father’s Day, we hope it’s a blast. Share your Father’s Day plans with us using the tag #downtownnewwest.
