Classy Lounge ?

I have been on a quest to find a "classy" lounge...one that either play very light techno "chillax" or soft jazz. A place where people don't talk loud and have soft lighting...

I've manage to find a few place with "soft lighting" but everywhere i go ..places is always loud and have flat screen tv everywhere..

I want a lounge..not a sportsbar...but that seems to be the "thing" nowadays...

any ideas?

The decor in 0755 lounge is more modern, but they blast the music. I wouldn't call it classy. The one time I went, it reminded me more of a Vancouver Special crowd. Menu was overpriced and "meh."

Servers were attractive and friendly but clearly inexperienced. Overall experience: I'd go back on special occasion but would not suggest it if I was looking for a lounge to go to with a friend to have a glass of wine or to wind back.

I've been having trouble finding a nice lounge myself.

I've been enjoying the lounges at Fairmont Pacific Rim and George in yaletown (though it's often packed and noisy on weekends). The lounge at Terminal City Club is nice and quiet but I think you need a membership to use it.

The problem with a lot of our live music lounges is that the space is much too small. Instead of being pleasant, the music is often ear piercing loud and you have to yell for your voice to be heard.

I'd love to hear where other people are going

HK has some nice lounges, but I don't think I ever came across any in Van that didn't blast the music...

These ones are cool

I've only been there once, but I liked Hidden Tasting Bar. Not very busy the time I went.

No such thing as classy anymore even the lounges that start classy start going into the sports bar theme quickly because it's a good revenue generator especially Vancouver where majority of people are active and either love to watch sports, play sports or both

don't know if this would qualify as an actual lounge, but the cellar jazz club is a nice place with live jazz music as well when they're not playing "soft jazz". The place is pretty small so I wouldn't say the noise level will get out of control.

@0755 Went there, doubt I'll go back.
Drinks are on the pricey side, hard to justify considering the atmosphere: 1. People wearing sweats 2. Old and unfriendly staff 3. Music playlist from The Beat

Try Salt Tasting Room, it's not a lounge, but it's a more chill date place.

Also, there's a Whiskey lounge somewhere in that vicinity anyone know??

Not sure how popular it is now, but Narrow Lounge was a pretty chill place... More of a hipster vibe, but it's a speakeasy so definite cool-points to impress if they aren't aware of the place.

Pourhouse has live jazz on Sundays.

Just came back from 0755.
Nice place. But older crowd....
It was slow but it's a Sunday so didn't expect much
Drinks are pricey, staffs were nice tho
Overall it wasn't good nor bad. I liked it because music wasn't blasting loud and I could talk with my friends

I haven't been there in a while but Alphamale described it as "walking into a snuff film." I went there several years ago (before it was cool ) and they blasted music and by no means "classy" in my opinion any way. Neat place though!

I think when it comes to an upscale bar, something like a hotel's bar/cocktail lounge is best.

Yea, 'classy' isn't what I'd describe it either I guess, but it gets mad stye points for the hipster girls. High maintenance girls need not apply. Although It's kinda sketch bringing a girl there the first time coz it's in the basement of an industrial area building down a dirty sketchy looking staircase covered in graffiti.

Chop lounge in Richmond is kinda chill, I guess.
