Portobello West – New Venue

I just received the Portobello West newsletter and they’ve announced a change of venue for the November 26 & December 16 events. The new venue is a newly renovated heritage building off of Terminal Avenue, so Portobello West will be indoors for the next two events. (Map)

Here are the details (from the Portobello West newsletter):

Due to the temporary closure of the Plaza of Nations, Portobello West will be changing venues. Our new venue is indoors so everyone will stay warm and dry while shopping for the holidays. We will be at The Rocky Mountaineer Station at 1755 Cottrell Street (just off Terminal Avenue behind Home Depot), open from 11am to 6pm both this Sunday and Sunday, December 10th.

The Station is a newly renovated heritage building with a gorgeous open floor plan that includes exposed timber and brick, 35ft vaulted ceiling and large glass windows that allow natural light to stream in. There is free parking and a shuttle bus will run regularly from the Plaza of Nations to the Station for those of you who are coming in from Yaletown or South Robson. Otherwise, you can catch any Main Street bus to Main and Terminal then walk up (see the website for directions) or hop the Skytrain to Main and Terminal and walk from there!

Vancouver’s own fashion and art market makes a one-stop shop for all your Xmas holiday needs. With two pre-Xmas dates (November 26th and December 10th), Portobello West is the best place in town to find special one-of-a-kind gifts for the whole family and better yet, one for yourself! Enjoy the market’s delectable treats, coffee and ambience (with seasonal music provided by Bongo Beat) in the warmth of the Rocky Mountaineer Station.

Finally, travel by public transport and your transfer could be worth $25! Hand over your ticket/transfer at the Portobello West info booth with your name and a contact number or email address and you’ll be entered into a draw to win a $25 Gift Certificate. Click here for rules and conditions.
