  • Commodore Ballroom, the

    Vancouver Nightlife

    Commodore is a fabulous place to see a band play, and they usually have some amazing acts that come through there. It isn't open nightly, but they have acts through there so regularly, that it is open a good chunk of the week. Acts such as Weezer, Ben Harper, Tom Waits, Moby, I Mother Earth, and so many more take the stage there. Check out...

  • Inner Harbour

    Victoria Nightlife

    Victoria has its share of pubs and if you are looking for a great beer, you came to the right place. With two world class brewpubs in Spinnakers and The Swan, you cannot go wrong. A bit newer is the Canoe Brewpub which we did not make it to. There are countless other pubs, many with great names like The Sticky Wicket and real English charm. But...

    This is a British style pub and it is certainly the one that is most favored by locals. It offers great food and drinks with ocassional live music on the rooftop patio area. Don't go away from Victoria without visiting it!! No sneakers, ID required at the entrance.

  • Blarney Stone, the

    Vancouver Nightlife

    I was a frequent flyer at the Blarney Stone (I guess if you call 5 times in a year frequent...so not so frequent). It was a great place for people that just want to go out and have mindless fun with a pint in your hand. The only beef I have with this place is the "security" staff, who are very inconsistent. One night we were blethered and danced...

  • Strathcona Hotel

    Victoria Nightlife

    Big Bad John's is a unique bar and a place that I really loved. It's hard to describe a place when you've only been there once and felt like, if you lived in that city, it would probably be your regular haunt, but I'll try. BBJ's is located in the Strathcona Hotel, and is the first place in BC to have a liquor license. When you walk in, it's like...

  • Pit Pub, the

    Vancouver Nightlife

    Founded by the famous naturalist David Suzuki the Notorious P.I.T. is the most popular student bar at UBC. I have spent many a night and many more a dollar at this not so fine establishment. So much so I think i'm a part owner. Wednesdays and Fridays are the popular nights here. Beer is cheap (pitchers of canadian/kokanee for 10 bucks), the white...

  • Legends

    Victoria Nightlife

    Personally I don't enjoy going to Legends, although many of my guy friends do. I prefer dressier clubs with mostly dance music; Legends is a VERY casual club that mixes dance music (by that I include Top 40, hip hop, R&B and some "techno") with old-school stuff from the 80s, rock, metal and even country. Cover charge has been $7 or $8 the last few...

  • Cambie Bar & Grill, the

    Vancouver Nightlife

    This was one of the first bars I went to when I first traveled to BC. Some local girls took me here and I have been coming back every time I am in Vancouver. I really dig this bar. It is pretty unique. They have big wooden picnic / bench tables that are covered in graffiti. The food is really good for being a bar, and it is very reasonable in...

  • Boom Boom Room

    Victoria Nightlife

    Boom Boom Room is known for it's amazing Monday nights- it is one of the hottest place to be. Although other nights can be kind of "iffy", their Monday nights are always packed with beautiful people who frequent other clubs from Thursday to Saturday. Drinks are always cheap and the staff are always very friendly. Cover has never exceeded $5. Dress...

  • Granville Street

    Vancouver Nightlife

    I asked at hotel reception where the best place to go on a Tuesday night in Vancouver is. I was recommended either Gastown or Granville. Gastown is pleasant enough but was pretty quiet to say the least. I then tried Granville and that was much livelier, not too bad for a Tuesday night at all. I can imagine it gets fairly mental there at...

    Darcy's Pub is at Bastion Square. Joining the harbor really. The pub is an icon it seems. During the day its busy with people enjoying the outdoor tables, the sun, and crowd watching. At night it becomes the haven for young party goes out for a night on the town. Here the drinks are expensive but the vibe is good. A pint of Guiness was costing...

  • Plaza, the

    Vancouver Nightlife

    At the beginning of the 21st century, the City of Vancouver had replanned the downtown core, changing the once nightclub streets into residential zones which therefor forced these nightclubs to shut down and re-open on Granville Street, hoping that this would revive Granville to its former glory days. Prior to the 1970's, Granville Street used to...

  • Evolution

    Victoria Nightlife

    This is one of my more favorite nightclubs in Victoria. Sure, Legends was alright, but Evolution played much better music. Me being not a big fan of dance music and more of an alternative person, this place was a welcome sight. With the drinks being good, the crowd friendly, the venue smaller, and the location away from downtown and in a city...

    Vancouver Nightlife

    Oh man. Shine. I've had quite some nights at Shine. You know something crazy's always going to happen at Shine, but you never fully know what until you get there. Whether that crazy thing means getting some attitude from their extremely-obnoxious bouncers when you've arrived at their front steps on your birthday to pick up your...

  • Hugo's

    Victoria Nightlife

    On a pub crawl some friends and I found Hugo's and Jean Pierre of the IFC was on pay for view defending his title and won. On that night everyone was glued to the big screens watching the action. It seemed like a nice place but a different sort of atmosphere on that particular night. I would like to see it as a brew pub during the day!

  • Railway Club, the

    Vancouver Nightlife

    This is one of the older establishments in the city, famous for its live music. Many locals bands get their start at the Railway Club - a venue that might hold as much as 200 on a good night. The venue's definitely cozy - kind of reminds me of a 1970's basement or a friendly pub. The reason for that is because that's exactly what it is - a tiny...

    Im from UK. Been in 4 times to the pub. Each time i waited a while to get served. I still got a tab though, which is as it should be. Not that it means much to us back home. The 5th time i had enough with all the waiting and said i was dying of thirst, and there was other people waiting. We all got served but he asked me for a credit card or...

    Vancouver Nightlife

    Vancouver has a very open and relaxed gay scene - just walk along Davie Street! One place that's hot and cool at the same time is Odyssey. It's wild without being tacky and they have lots of fun theme nights that suit not just gays but welcome all people. It has one large room for drinking and dancing with go-go boys and the like. The outside...

    Vancouver Nightlife

    Nick Moss & The Flip Flops preformed the night we were there. They are a 10-piece jazz band. Lots of energy and the lead singer can sing it right. People dancing, having a great ole time. I was even asked to get up and boogy, and I sure did. This is the place to go to listen to live music. BB King played here once. It's a must go. Casual.

  • Stone Temple

    Vancouver Nightlife

    I've been here a few times, and if you're into young obnoxious kids (young as in still in their teens, cause Canada's drinking age is lower than US's) then you might like it here. Anyway, i've found it to be pretty trashy, really loud, and the music's pretty bad. Another gross thing...they have contests for guys to chug down a full pitcher of beer...

  • it's not always starry skies

    Though a starry night at a secluded campsite is my favorite, sometimes it's nice to stay inside, go out for drinks, and a nice meal. Vic has all of this in ample quantities. Check out Spinnakers, The Swan or the newer Canoe Brewery for a drink. There are tons of great places to eat if not into drinking with many different ethnic foods represented....
