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,
