Osborne Village is so hip that if you were to tell it that it was a cool neighbourhood, it would be all like, “I know, check out my sweet new tattoo. It’s the Golden Boy skating down the Assiniboine River. I got it yesterday morning after embarking on a host of artisanal and sundry endeavours.”
In 2012 the Canadian Institute of Planners named it Canada’s Greatest Neighbourhood – and for good reason.
The Village permeates an artsy vibe and features some of the city’s best live music dive bars and watering holes, along with more restaurants than one can imagine. All along the main strip you’ll find swish and bohemian shopping, jewellers, cooking supply stores, a record store with a sweet collection of vinyl, yoga studios, and a gem of a theatre that is known for comedy.
