Top 5 Activities For Grooms in Vancouver

We know that oftentimes the wedding prep can be all too focused on the bride; and rightfully so - she’s a very special lady!

But worry not, we have not forgotten about our grooms. It’s a significant day for you as well. To honor the gentlemen, we’ve compiled some ideas for fun things to do with your fronds or groomsmen. All of them are local, affordable, and FUN activities that allow you and your groomsmen to add to the experience, and treat yourself to something special as well.

Don't forget, you deserve it, you are half of the wedding ;-)

Whiskey Tasting

Put your taste buds to work at the 2015 Irish Whiskey Bar of the Year Gold Medal Winner, Shebeen Whiskey House in Gastown. Or perhaps you and the groomsmen would like a wider selection. Choose your favorite whiskey from over 750 bottling at Fets Whiskey Kitchen on Commercial Drive.
