Locals have rallied together since 1971 to keep the Heritage District alive. The Heritage District, located between the Financial District and Gastown, has slowly been rebuilding the vibe it first began with. According to owner Sean Sherwood, designer of Century Restaurant and Bar, the area is really developing as a destination for dining and nightlife. The opening of Century Restaurant and Bar, set for February 2006, will provide an infusion of energy, style and elegance to a neighborhood once celebrated as Vancouverâ��s destination of choice. The restaurantâ��s name was inspired by its location within a heritage building called â��Century Houseâ��. Built as a bank over 100 years ago, Century boasts barrel vaulted ceilings, original Victorian chandeliers, a striking marble staircase, and a VIP vault room; showcasing the distinct architecture appreciated within the district. This classic, turn-of-the-century design is what inspired the Latin theme.
