Can you name any Vancouver restaurants that don’t card?

Looking for a restaurant where my friends and I can get served without them carding us.
Somewhere in the downtown area.

Will the restaurant be open until or past midnight?
Is it really busy?
Is it a Japanese Restaurant? a Korean Restaurant? etc..
Yah thanks,
and please don’t lecture me about drinking underage etc. =]
oh they do NOT card everywhere.

Okay, I’m not from Vancouver, but I can give you hints on how not to get carded.

First off, Canada is a comparatively easy place to get served if you’re underage, as opposed to the USA which cards like crazy.

If you’re going with friends, try to act older than your age. Dress like how an adult would dress (ie: collared shirts instead of tees, etc), don’t talk about your school life, if your a girl, take it easy on the make-up, just use enough to be classy.

Also, order something adult. Don’t ask for wine coolers or Mike’s lemonade [at least not at first], go for a bottle of wine [if you aren't a connoisseur, I'd suggest a pinot noir], a pitcher of beer, or a mixed drink.

Last but not least, try lots of places. If you get served, stay; if not, move on. If you go to more upscale places, you will seem more adult and they might not card you. Avoid places that lots of young people go, because they’re used to carding people all the time and will probably card you. But either way, if you try a bunch of places you’ll probably find somewhere that will let you drink.

One more thing: make eye contact when you order and be confident that you’ll get served. Lacking confidence in your ability to get served is a give away that you’re underage because the only people who aren’t confident that they’ll get served are the underaged.

Sorry that I don’t know of any places but I hope these tips work for you.

    You kids think you’re so damn grown up until something really bad happens to you.

    Just WAIT until you’re the right age, seriously. It’s likely they card EVERYWHERE.

    If you can’t handle criticism, ask elsewhere. I’m pretty sure B.C. Police will have info.
