what was you guys' clubbing experience that finally made you realize ur too old for clubbing? and dont say seeing 16 year olds at atlantis/boss cause thats normal

mine was a tie between - probably going to canvas when it first opened and they didnt have 151 and disnt know what the three/four wisemen was. clubbing turned all high class on me. or when when all those clubs became a parade of a bunch of shiny ed hardy shirts evrrywhere.

Now its "unrented office space"



If you're looking for class b rental space with a hint of must in the air, then you need to go to "unrented office space". Junkies down below, fine clientele in the pay by the week hotel upstairs and something funny about midgets, this club is for you"

There was that one in burnaby on kingsway by Tim Hortons that got leveled for another condo tower too.

Now: strip clubs.

NBI is still there, no longer a show lounge and no longer NBI. Mugs closed and re-opened in Surrey. Um...that one in East Van that wasn't the #5...had the sleazy "hump your stripper" hotel upstairs.

Dammit..can't remember the name. We only went once and it was horrible.

My best memories are from the Fraser Arms, that time when they had the stripping waitresses, $8 pitchers, and $2 appies. At midnight all 4 waitresses would go up on the stage at the same time.

I can't stand dance clubs though. Went to a bunch when I was 19-20, pretty much always sucked. Not for me.

Lots of mentioned already but I'll name a few that I remember

Mars - Remember I was a teenage in HS and randomly tried to get in one night
Viva - oh Richmond
Purple Onion - Good ol early days of clubbing
BBB (Big Bamboo) On W Broadway across from BP - Turned into something else after that was a a hot spot for black people. Lots of shootings at BBB back in the day

The only club I ever really enjoyed was the Red Room on friday nights. It had a different name before that but I can't remember.. Madisons? something like that

Very mixed/eclectic easy going crowd who were just there to have fun. I don't think that happens in Vancouver anymore does it?

My friends and I actually miss Fraser Arms quite a bit. It was a 5 min drive from our house, no cover, they had toonie time ($2 for food), and strippers all be it they were not usually that great but we didn't go for the girls anyways but the food. If the girls were decent it was just a bonus.

Bar None is a good club for hanging out, with easy going people Good DJs, good times. A good diverse crowd. The down side to Bar None is steep $18 cover charge.

Fortune Sound Club has by far the best sound system. -good high energy, crowd. No douchebags there.
