With a variety of art galleries, outdoor public art, live music venues, the museum & more Downtown Kamloops is the place to get out and explore.

Diverse Dining Scene

We’ve got the BEST selection in town for food and drink, everything from international flavours, to fine dining made with local ingredients. Not to mention plenty of options for craft brew or delicious coffee!

Exceptional Scenery

O

n behalf of the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association, I’d like to welcome you to our city and invite you to enjoy everything Downtown has to offer. While exploring our community, look forward to engaging in interesting conversations with locals, and meeting people who have both contagious smiles and warm personalities. The outstanding variety of choices available will not disappoint. Downtown Kamloops offers opportunities to enjoy everything from patio dining, to shopping, the arts, culture, entertainment, sport, natural attractions and more. I encourage you to join us downtown and let us show you why we are truly the Heart of Kamloops.

CARL’S TOP PICKS

• IN THE MORNING: Caffe Motivo- I enjoy the comfortable surroundings, friendly staff, and tasty coffee. • FOR LUNCH: The Art We Are- What a fun atmosphere! Food, drink, art, and entertainment all under 1 roof. • FOR DINNER: The Commodore- Particularly when I am hungry because the servings are significant. • TO QUENCH MY THIRST: Red Collar BrewingBecause their IPAs are ‘thirst-quenching’. • SHOPPING: Confession time…..I’m not much of a shopper. However, the window display at McAllister & Howard Clothiers is the most inviting I’ve seen, and the clothing choices are incredible.

— Carl DeSantis Executive Director, Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association

People of the NEIGHBOURHOOD “My brother and I, along with the help of many friends and family, my landlords, my staff, all helped build this little gem. I mean that literally! We tore down and built walls. We hammered open and re-concreted floors thrice. So much blood, sweat, and tears from caring people that had no stake in this business; except to want to see something special born and thrive in our city.” - Greg, Pizza Pi
