Radical Commercial Drive residents would probably re-enact the barricade scene from Les Miserables if developers ever threaten to turn this east-side bastion of down-market chic into another Robson Street.

The majority of the community here are of Italian background so it is possible to get real authentic Italian pizzas and pasta. The Commercial strip, as it is known today, is home to modern counter-culture. There are coffee bars that provide tables and seats so you can sip a cup of Italian roast coffee as you watch traffic and the world go by. You'll find that many Vancouver italian shops are located in this area.

The game soccer is very popular and is considered a conversational topic among the locals. There is an alternate store like Beckman's which is a one stop centre for folk festival wear. Look out for more stores of this kind.
