This historic area is where Vancouver was founded. Gastown is named after the man John "Gassy Jack" Deighton who opened his saloon in 1867 on a shoestring budget. He got his name "Gassy Jack" because he talked a lot. The locals called the place Gassy's Town which was later shortened to Gastown. You can find Gassy Jack's statue at the corner of Water and Carrall Streets. In Gastown, you and your pooch can walk on the cobble-stoned streets and view the Victorian architecture. Be sure to stop by the Gastown Steam Clock, which is the world's first steam-powered clock. It blows every 15 minutes. Also in Gastown you can watch street performers or visit a dog-friendly outdoor restaurant on Powell Street like Gassy Jack's Deli or Cafe Dolcino.
