Winnipeg’s West End is alive with the rhythm of many nations and cultures. Many local families can still trace back their roots to this area, as waves of immigrants have been making their homes in the West End since its earliest days.
As a result, this ethnically rich neighbourhood contains a cornucopia of rave-worthy hole in the wall restaurants and specialty grocery stores from countries around the world – along with some colourful murals representing all the nations that now call the West End Home. With all this diversity, the West End has become a destination for gourmands looking for authentic eats and hard to find ingredients.
Live music is also big in the West End, with the West End Cultural Centre being the main hub. Located in an 80-year-old church it provides a great place to catch a live band and is one of the greenest live performance venues in Canada.
