Vancouver Perspectives: Vancouver After Dark

November 16, 2017 | 6:15 PM - 8:00 PM


Downtown Vancouver was home to legendary nightclubs throughout much of the last century where, thanks to Vancouver’s geographic location, many performers would kick off tours. Today, most of the theatres of Granville Street are gone, and only a few legendary nightspots remain. How did some of Vancouver’s clubs remain, and others simply disappear? Is the city’s “Granville Entertainment District” really the answer? Author Aaron Chapman explores the history and future of Vancouver’s music scene.

Aaron Chapman’s books include Live at the Commodore: The Story of Vancouver’s Historic Commodore Ballroom (2014), Liquor, Lust and the Law: The Story of Vancouver’s Legendary Penthouse Nightclub (2013), and The Last Gang in Town: The Epic Story of the Vancouver Police Vs. the Clark Park Gang (2016), all from Arsenal Pulp Press.

Vancouver Lookout at Harbour Centre is celebrating its 40th anniversary. As part of its “coming of age”, the Lookout has partnered with Vancouver Heritage Foundation to launch a new program of events called Perspectives, a series of live talks and discussions about Vancouver’s past, present and future.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of the talks to allow for a line up at the elevators to the Lookout deck. Tickets include admission to Vancouver Lookout.

This event will feature a cash bar from Vancouver’s first micro distillery, Long Table Distillery.
