Club in Downtown & West End

Redesigned from its previous incarnation as the Plaza Club, Venue has a much larger dance floor since the removal of the obtrusive central bar. The music is of the mainstream variety – the weekly Global Fridays party is best – and the crowd includes plenty of nonlocals in from Surrey and New Westminster for their weekly booze-fueled big night out.

It is also a live-music venue some evenings; check the website to see what's coming up.
