881 Granville Street Vancouver BC map
:: Vancouver’s alternative dance club & live music space ::

Vancouver's got a party space for the night faithful, and not for the faint of heart. Situated between Robson and Smithe at historic 881 Granville Street, VENUE is Vancouver's alternative live music room and dance party destination for the electronic dance scene, live concerts and special events.

From Monday to Thursday, VENUE hosts live shows, featuring anything from import indie rock to electric and everything in-between. On Fridays and Saturdays, Vancouver's top alternative DJs will send the dance floor into a frenzy, keeping the skinny jeans, slip-ons and vintage Chanel happy all night long with pop, rock and retro originals, and bass heavy electro remixes. On Sundays, let loose as Blueprint delivers Youngblood, a weekly electro-rave party with top local and international DJs.

VENUE boasts a 12,000 square foot, 500 person, two-level room that is engineered for entertainment. It features glam rock inspired interior, plush velvet booths and walls covered in LED lighting. The dance floor holds more than half the club's capacity, jamming the room with raw energy, while the upstairs wrap-around balcony is an ideal spot to catch your breath and wait for your second wind. If you come for the show, be prepared for an intimately intense experience, with great sight lines from the main floor to the mezzanine.

Technically speaking, VENUE has the highest quality live and DJ sound, plus state of the art intelligent lighting and visual systems. Additional production highlights include a large stage, open dance floor and custom DJ booth, placed amidst the congregation of dance floor junkies.

VENUE is Vancouver’s landmark of musical miscellany. Come in and experience the best nite life has to offer.
