Downtown New West is packed with exciting activities for you and your family this August! From art to yoga, be sure to take a look at our event calendar so you don’t miss out on the fun.
If you’ve been missing live music, get ready for Music by the River! Presented by the Downtown New West BIA and the City of New Westminster with support from the Arts Council of New Westminster and Tourism New Westminster. We encourage you to come down to Pier Park on Thursdays in August to enjoy some takeout, beverages and live music on the festival lawn!
Here are our top picks for takeout in downtown:
Taverna Greka is a downtown staple located in what some people refer to as ‘Greek Town’ and it’s a great place to pick up some Mediterranean cuisine. Our recommendation is the Garlic Butter Prawns, super yummy and a great pair with an alcoholic beverage as our parks are now licensed.
There’s so many awesome places downtown to pick up sushi, make Ki Sushi your next choice! We picked sushi rolls in general as our top pick – there are so many different options and choices for everyone, get as much or as little as you need.
You can’t go wrong with pizza for takeout, it's an absolute classic. We suggest you try the Margherita Pizza, a true classic! Treat yourself.
Chiko Chicken is new to the hood, so Thursdays are your chance to check it out for the first time! All flavours are great but you hey, you can never go wrong with the original.
Chronic Tacos is a great choice for takeout, with a fun take on Mexican food here you can grab a delicious customized tostada bowl. Customize it exactly the way you want with all the delicious options they have – street, gringo or baja style!
Longtail Kitchen is a staple at River Market, just a short walk from Pier Park. We recommend the Pad Thai Tofu for anyone who is wanting something lighter. But don’t worry meat lovers, there’s plenty on the menu for you as well!
We hope to see you at Music by the River this August!
