Everything has to come to an end, those are words we are all very familiar with. Unfortunately, in the restaurant world that means closed spaces. In turn that leaves communities with fewer choices on where to spend time.

In Vancouver, WA, recently several places have closed. If you look for information on who, what, and why, it’s not always that easy to find.

Welcome to that list. This is the Vancouver, WA list of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and more that have closed down. Some places are chains, others are local places that decided it was time to try something else.

The aim is to provide a somewhat comprehensive list of places that left the downtown Vancouver location. The hope is to expand the list to all o Vancouver when information can be found.

Big Town Hero

The Vancouver location of Big Town Hero closed at some point in February. On their location page, currently, it says they are temporarily closed while moving to a new location. The sandwich shop, an Oregon-based chain, was in an area that got decent traffic, but over the years has run into issues with continuing that success.

IV Tea

It was February 14, 2023, when IV Tea Company closed its doors in the space that housed Black Rock Coffee. This location provided a nice space for excellent tea blends, tea cocktails, tasty pastries, plus good lunch options. Even though they shuddered their brick-and-mortar location, IV Tea still lives online. You can purchase tea, plus other items there.

Interestingly enough, IV Tea and Big Town Hero were both in the same building and both are no longer there.
