Vancouver -- Support Your Local Artist -- The Dive Coffee Bar

The Drive Coffee Bar prides itself on being a part of the Commercial Drive - Little Italy community in East Vancouver.

We are more than just a coffee shop.  We are more than just a bar.

We are a small. owner operated, European style coffee bar that serves coffee, beers and wines, liqueurs and light snacks - both sweet and savory.

We are a place where the community can go and hang out and have a good time by themselves or socializing with friends and family.  Talking, texting, surfing. studying or reading. Your choice.  A place were ideas are exchanged and where the dreams of out patrons can start their path(s) to reality.

We also want to be a place where local artists - painters, photographers and musicians can display their art.

We offer our entire bars' walls to one local artist every month.  We do not charge for the honor of displaying their works and we take no proceeds from any of their sales.  The months artist is personally available one Thursday a month to give further insights to the art that they have on our walls.

We have open mic nights every Wednesday for the upcoming artist(s) and we offer our bar to local musicians on Friday and Saturday Nights.  

We make our coffee bar available to meetups, social groups and book clubs on Sunday evening through Tuesday evening, We want the community to be able to hold forums on topics that interest them in a safe and friendly environment.

We are open until 8:00 PM on 3 nights of the week, 10:00 PM on 2 nights of the week and midnight on 2 nights of the week.  Great for the students who need a place to study...

We support local vendors from the immediate neighborhood and Greater Vancouver.

We are on a major bus line and very close to skytrain.

Looking for a cool place to hang out, come by and give us a try,

Meetup and Event Space Available on Commercial Drive

We at The Drive Coffee Bar and Commercial Drive Coffee Company have been trying to find interesting groups that might be in need of meeting space for their organizational meetings, meetups or special events. 

We are a European style coffee bar that is fully licensed, air conditioned and with free wifi.

We are open 7 days a week and until 10:00 everyday.  We can stay open and serve until midnite.

Our place could be used as a meeting place for your meetups or events of 5-60 people.  We can normally close the place down for the right sized event and the bar bill will suffice as payment - there is no booking fee. Kind of a win / win proposition...  

We can do semi private or fully private events and have the ability to cater warm or cold foods.

We are still pretty new and just trying to see if we can grow our business in a little cooler way than just being a coffee joint.

We are 9 blocks from the Broadway and Commercial Skytrain Station and we have the #20 bus stop right out our front door as well as a designated taxi stop. We are very easy to get to via public transit. If you want to drive, there is ample paid public parking across the street.

We especially cater to any of the small and local groups that are looking for a cool spot to call their own for a few hours. 

Come by the bar and check it out.  I think you will love our spot and love our staff.



Vancouver Barista and The Drive Coffee Bar - Commercial Drive Coffee Company

Yes, we were reviewed when we were very much in our infancy. 
It was a nice review and I believe it helped us quite a bit.

We have grown up a lot since then.   We really appreciate all the honest reviews we've gotten and get. Good reviews or with "needs improvement", they all matter and help us grow.

Thank you to the folks of Commercial Drive / Grandview-Woodlands for accepting us. 
We are thrilled to be a part of the community.

A belated Merry Christmas to all and preemptive Happy New Year to all.

Thanks to the many, like Vancouver Barista, who take the time to visit and critique to allow us to become better.  You can check out the reviews of us and all the "other 99" here - click the picture.
