Attended the Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark concert. Saw them in 2011 and now in 2018 at the same location. OMD was awesome both times and the venue was great too. The cover band Gold was pretty good too. It’s a smaller, cozier place where...More

Wonderful voice but ruined by the way too loud backing. Couldn’t hear her lyrics Sound way too ambient for her voice. The Venue was better they tell me

I went to this venue for my first time. It was easy to get drinks, seating was a little more ticky but everywhere you were you could see the band. I'd happily go there again.

Probably due to the event that was not exactly entertaining, but the location itself doesn't have anything special. Nice bar, not far from downtown, but the feeling is that what makes this ballroom interesting is the show and not the ballroom that makes the show...More

Very limited seating with tables for eating. No table...no food. Lots of standing room on the dance floor. Shrugs? Reserve a seat and get there early. Back packs must be checked in at the door. No in/out privileges. No smoking area.

I have been here several times over the years for concerts and a privately booked Christmas party. Older venue but still in fairly good shape. It has a large stage and a good amount of seating and huge dance floor. If you do come out...More

Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and
has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs
and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the
city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday
nights are the most popular and lively, with young
revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping
the party going until late. Granville Street, being
