Guilt & Co: what do users think?
Ziegfried Von Shrodder: Came here on Sunday, May 21st with my wife, and from the time we talked in to getting seated, we had excellent friendly service that I have not had in a while. I believe our servers name was Bradley. Super friendly guy who was attentive, I can tell they were very busy because it was a PACKED house and the music was off the charts. Western style tonight with an 1940’s flare, and bar tenders were quick and attentive as well. Highly Recommend this place. Glad we checked their online calendar for the type of music that was performing and playing tonight. If you get Bradley as your server you are lucky to have him. Staff are very professional even with the drunk idiots in the crowd! I’m sure every restaurant gets those! Check this place out! I highly recommend!
Amarjot Pabla: Been to this place many times. In the past, have enjoyed myself, but unfortunately tonight we experienced some unprofessional behavior. The man at the front, as we were exiting, stopped his coworker from stamping us for re-entry as he decided for us “because we would not be re-entering”. Not sure if this is a policy Guilt&Co has now, but from my past experiences, paying cover allows for re-entry later on. Kind of sad to see a place that I truly enjoyed fall to some horrible customer service. Maybe Guilt & Co can speak to this issue. Is re-entry not allowed after paying the same cover as everyone else in line? Kind of sad to see one of my favorite places in Vancouver fall to this type of behavior. I have so many good memories here, but unfortunately overshadowed by this staff member’s behavior.Followed up by going to Smith’s. Great staff, friendly, genuinely kind people. Highly recommend.**edit: I had a back and forth with the owner because I wanted to clarify some details. I received thoughtful responses and it seems like they are taking situations like this seriously. It’s nice to see that they are trying to improve. I have upped my star rating because of this and I hope the next time I visit, the staff will be as respectful and kind as I’m used to!
Suzette McFaul: Terrible experience. Was asked to leave as someone in my party was intoxicated. Not falling down or obxious. Maybe profiled because of age? Yes certainly older than average person. But really? Sad and disappointed tonight.
Federico baldacci: Great music plus great staff = great environment
David Geiman: Adoramos o lugar! Tinha uma banda ótima tocando e bons drinks!
Ricky Au: Fun live music that really makes you get up and dance. Their baked brie is so creamy and tasty too!
Bunny Brown: Cozy cave-like lounge with live music and great apps! Staff are friendly and accommodating. Indie entertainment here is great!
Linney Sylvester: Excellent vibes and dimly lit underground live music venue. The charge $6 per set of music. Drinks can be a bit pricey and the food is a limited, but the music is always good and so are the staff! I recommend happy hour to save a few bucks. I'd except to spend about $100 a person if u stay for few drinks and a few sets and snacks to share
Caitlin Carter: Drinks were unique and tasty, but they were overpriced and our server was rude.
T Gomez: Really enjoyed the live music and tasty drinks!
Kait B: Great cozy live music venue. Staff were great, up front and helpful when I contacted them beforehand to address some access needs. Grounds for Divorce cocktail is hands down one of the best drinks I've ever had! One star lost only because I'd expected more of the food, and there were some issues with my guest receiving their meal in a timely manner due to poor planning on the part of the kitchen.
Gabriela Ganancio: I recently visited Guilt to celebrate my birthday, and while the waitress who served us was good and very attentive, unfortunately, the evening got off to a bad start due to the unfriendly and rude staff/lady at the door. The staff member at the door seemed disinterested in providing even basic customer service and was unwelcoming from the start.Despite my attempts to engage in conversation and let the staff know that it was my birthday, they showed no interest and didn't even wish me a happy birthday. The staff member's negative attitude left a bad taste in my mouth and made me feel unappreciated and unwelcome.I hope that the management takes note of my complaints and takes steps to ensure their staff provides better customer service in the future. Birthdays are special occasions, and it's disappointing that my experience was marred by such poor treatment by this lady.Ps: Music it was very good!
stephen milton: Best atmosphere in Gastown. Good music, good service, and good vibes.
Marcel Laforge: Dope vibes
Filip Rerek: Excellent cocktails, live music, great appetizers and cool vibe! There's a cover charge to support the musicians which is a great idea :) Ms. Dos Santos was one of the most talented musicians we've ever listened to live!!! Keep the great music and exquisite cocktails going ;)P.S. the mezcal sour with an egg white on top was 10/10 and so was the garlic bread.
Tyler MacLeod: Great music venue for different tastes
Jason Kjorlien: Shopping ,a few restaurants & pubs nearby
Simran Gill: I have throughly enjoyed this place every time that I have been to it. I love how they encourage the works of local artists. It’s open everyday and hosts two shows- the early & the late show. They are both equally great. There is no reservation required as its first come first serve basis. You might end up sharing the table or standing at the bar as they try to accommodate as many people as possible. The food is average but the drinks are great. Definitely one of the must-dos in Vancouver!
Kajol Parikh: It was so loud, the drinks were okayish, the whole place too dark and a wait of 35 mins for all this!
Man Z.: Great place!
Sean Carey: Was not informed we’d be charged “per set”for cover charge. Was given the short straw, getting charged $12 for hearing 5 minutes of the first set. Waiting 40 minutes while the band took a break, and hearing 1-2 songs of the next set of the same Maroon 5 wannabe band, and getting charged another $12.All told I paid $24 to listen to ten minutes worth of music with my partner, at $20 a drink too. Maybe part of the cover is the set you hear in line while all the people who “know” someone who works there cut you. I am pretty sure the homies were being charged cover at all. Pretty disappointed.

Frankie's Jazz Club: what do users think?
Kingsley Bailey: The best we'll kept secret Jazz room in the lower mainland supporting well-known acts and also the local Jazz scene and all while offering great service and food choices
Thomas Coppi Cunha: Amazingly welcome atmosphere, the server Philip was also incredible with his services.
Progressive Cardiac Services: Good times!
Gregory Kehm: I'd say the best live jazz venue in Vancouver and with superb Italian food flavours. Reservations are a very good idea. A cover charge is added when there is live music.
the awakened wanderer: Attended with group of friends. Lovely place, amazing service, awesome vibes, great food and cherry on top, Live Jazz performance by amazing amazing artist. What more can you expect for a beautiful evening.
Jacquelyn Johnston: Tonight was my first time here, went with a group of friends to hear LJ Mountenay. The music, while not jazz, was exceptionally good blues. The place was packed. The ambience, overall service, drinks and food were really good.I rated it four stars because although our server was lovely, efficient and kept our water glasses (prepoured when we arrived) full, she didn't come back to check on how we were enjoying our meals so I couldn't tell her my delicious lasagna wasn't quite hot enough.Also, while not her fault, my food contained a few bits of gristle and something herbal (leaves and stem) I couldn't chew through. I discreetly spit them into my napkin and brought it home to take a pic, but I haven't had success adding photos to reviews before. I'll try it. Perhaps someone can identify what it was. Looks a bit like bay leaf to me but it's poisonous so ... I don't know, probably not unless I die in my sleep.Okay, never mind the photo. I'm old and tired and don't want to start downloading apps. Maybe I can edit this later.As I said, overall a pleasant evening out.One more tiny note. I didn't hear the server thank me for the tip, which to me is imperative. If you expect a tip, I expect appreciation for it. I go out a fair bit, always tip but don't always get thanked and whenever that happens it makes me wish I hadn't bothered. So I'm just putting it out there to servers everywhere.By the way, the origin of tips is that it was an acronym for To Insure Prompt Service, usually given to the maitre'd to encourage fast seating and good service. Now, it's an expectation like an extra tax added to the bill. In my opinion, saying thank you is just as important a part of a server's job as saying hello with a smile.But, as I said, I'm old.
Ken Krueger WhiteCatzs: Great value for your money and home to Vancouver’s best jazz musicians. There are late night shows as well - starting around 11:30pm ( Frankie’s After Dark) with more experimental jazz performances by young up and coming musicians
Peter Myers: Nice place, good food (Italian) great music the night we were there. Early start for the music 20:00, which suited us. Not far from Expo line.
Saddesh Gurikankar: I don’t usually partake in jazz music or smoke but the other night I had a few puffs and watched the D. Restivo Trio and all I can say is that my mind has been expanded. I’ll be back to this club.
Carlyle Wilde: What an amazing way to spend a rainy Vancouver Friday night. We went for the live jazz music and we're very impressed at this well thought out intimate environment. We sat at the bar and the bartender provided an extremely high level of service. We had the Shrimp Tagliatelle in Lobster cream sauce, Chicken Parmigiana, Mussels and the Frankie's Pizza. All the items we ordered were very flavorful and I am sure all the others dishes on their men are just as delectable from this talented kitchen.
Robert Franco: Had a great time at Frankie’s Jazz Club. Good food and wine, great jazz and service, intimate venue. Can’t wait to go back.
Ula Cogito: Not great at all. Avoid it.
Political Foolishness: So you vet musical talent based on what now? Can you publish the complete list of criteria? For any future talent you book, should we scrutinize their views or sense of humor prior to coming to listen to their music? BTW, if you decide to rebook John Stetch, don't charge him a cent and make your announcement on Rebel News. I can guarantee your place will be full and you will be glad to welcome him back and all will be forgotten about this unfortunate political entanglement you have made for yourselves.
David Kujawa: You start bending to the mob of cancel culture then your time will come to be cancelled. Such a shame you have no backbone.
julian ferrer: frankies
N Boyko: Disappointed to hear about your venue’s recent decision to cancel the John Stetch musical performances. He is clearly a brilliant pianist and has dabbled in comedic impressions of prominent politicians. There is nothing inappropriate about engaging in humour to affect change in the political arena or cultural landscape. This has been the great thing about living in Canada—lots of creative comedians over the years poking fun at some of the ridiculous and often hypocritical things politicians say. It seems we’ve lost the ability to see humour for what it is, just that: humour. A small group has conspired to “cancel” Mr. Stetch based on a complete lack of understanding and context of his political satire. Frankie’s Jazz Club, unfortunately, has chosen to cave to this group of intolerant and immature people, rather than encouraging Mr. Stetch’s creativity in both music and comedy.
Cindy Dai - Thiessen: A flagship venue for jazz music in Vancouver. Great for the attentive-listening crowd. One of the only places in the city that now has a late night series (starts at 11:15 pm) that showcases creative music that tethers from the jazz and improvised music tradition. Good cocktails!
Matt Franceschini: Incredible staff and wonderful music!
jeff anderson: Really disappointed that you discriminate against talented artists who may have their own personal beliefs and political views. John Stetch is an amazing pianist and a lovely person. We have loved and thoroughly enjoyed his performances in the past. We definitely won't be returning to your venue as long as you exclude musicians based on hear say.
michelle: This is a great place to see and hear great local and international musicians! Special shoutout to the staff for giving their time to accommodate the late night series; it couldn’t be done without them.
Ella King: I really enjoy music in general. I like to see all kinds of artists share their love of music and skill with people like me who were not given this talent.Musicians communicate through the stroke of a guitar string, a beat of a drum or through the combination of piano keys. It takes us from a place in the present world, which can be confusing and hard to understand, to a world where all there is, is the music. There are no politics, there are no arguments, there is no right or wrong, there is just the emotions brought forward by the notes being played. To have this establishment cancel an accomplished musician for his comedy spoofs based on real events, has me in disbelief. Do you know the beliefs of ALL of your performers - I highly doubt that. Gone are the days where we actually give people the benefit of the doubt.Frankie's needs to get back to being about the music.

exclusive page

Address: 300 Water St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1B8, Canada

Schedule: Opens at 6:00 PM

Telephone: +1 604-689-2832

Business type: Live music venue

2nd Floor Gastown: what do users think?
Vaish Sivajothy: Quaint venue with a view of the steam clock and mountains based on your seating. Scrumptious food and incredible live music under the glow of twinkling lights. The performer of the night “Sean from the Yukon” was mesmerizing.
Diana Sonobe: It was my first time on the 2nd floor. Overall, I like this place. It´s cozy, intimist and the staff friendly, especially Marcela, who had excellent customer service. So, I´d like to share the pros and cons of 2nd Floor Gastown:Food: it´s ok for brunch. They have some good options. I wasn´t hungry, so I ordered a waffle that was a little oily but came with cream and maple syrup; those helped to taste better. Also, I ordered a mocha, which was DELICIOUS. My friend arrived later and ordered a soup that didn´t come with bread, so she ordered a side of toast foccacia. The size was fine, but unfortunately, it was a little burned, and she couldn´t eat. I had a toast before, and it was good; maybe they have to have more attention to ensure that all customers have the same.Customer service: When I arrived, the host immediately took me to the second floor. I didn´t know about the menu, but the waiter (Marcela) helped me choose my coffee (they don´t have a menu for coffee), and she was always attentive to me, other customers and the musicians. I´d say that this was the 5 stars service. My suggestion is that they should have a menu for coffee brunch. It will be helpful to customers to choose by themselves.Ambient: Overall was ok. The place was clean and organized and smelled good.Music: I went to enjoy my friends playing, and I think this is a good idea. Maybe the 2nd floor could do more marketing because I heard from some people that they didn´t know about the Brunch and Music. They host musicians who play several rhythms. Check them out on their website and enjoy them as much as I did. Back that day, we had a pleasure to enjoy our friends @sara_magal, @stevenjcharlesTips: I worked as a waiter before, and I know the tips help to complement the wage, but it will be nice to include the 15% option as well. Some customers want to tip, but sometimes they don´t have enough to tip 18, 20, or 30%.Parking: I highly recommend you don´t use your own car. It´s difficult to park around, and the price will be high if you get a spot. Try car share, public transportation or Cab/Uber.Thank you for reading it, and I hope it is helpful! Enjoy what makes you happy!
Mydhili Furtado: Really amazing service and food.
David Kowel: music was fine, food was awful. overcooked steak, unseasoned veg, childish plating. if you’re going to see a show here, eat somewhere else first.
Chloe Chan: shockingly underwhelmingno idea how is rated so high- maybe i wasn’t drunk enoughgenuinely thought i accidentally ordered off the kids menu, but then the bill came aroundthe most flavourable thing served to us was the sauce dish of three, fire-roasted tomatoes swimming in butternice music though and good server
Nathan D Silva: Went during the dine out dinner menu and everything except the tiramisu was mediocre (the tiramisu was one of my favorites). The starter soup was quite basic and the duck, although cooked to perfection, was underseasoned and didn't taste of much. For the price point, I was definitely expecting more.It also took a really really long time to get served meals and there was no bread or anything small to help during the wait.I may try this place when not during dine out as I think the crowd overwhelmed them and their food/service slacked.
かわしまさら: Went there for lunch Dineout. Poor service, our waiter looked like he didn't want to work there at all. Appies and dessert were decent and big portions. But main dish was disappointing, the duck was super bland. The live music was ok, I guess we didn't get very good musicians on that day. Overall definitely not worth the price point.
Dinorath P Casanova: The GM reached out and we had a good conversation about what had happened. I really appreciate her concerns and hopefully next time we visit will better.--Terrible experience today. Poor and very slow service. Waited over 10 min to be greeted by the server, waited 15min to get our drinks, another 40min to get our main dish which weren't 100% right as the eggs were all overcooked, and waites another 20min to get our dessert and when it was dropped it wasn't even what we had ordered. We only had a bottle of bubbles to share and weren't able to get more drinks as the server was nowhere to been seen. Tried to talk to a manager and didn't seem to care much.Overall it was a very bad experience.
Ken Tsang: Great vibe at this place above Water Street Cafe. The food isn't bad either. I believe they share the same menu, the only difference is the live music on the 2nd Floor
Holly Gibson: Really disappointing. Came for brunch and the mains (eggs and waffles) took over an hour. When they arrived the eggs were all overcooked. Service was very slow too. Additionally there was a live jazz band playing and the microphone was turned up so loud that it created a really unpleasant experience in such a small space. When telling management about the issues they were dismissive. Won’t be coming back.
jennifer salazar: Came here for Dine Out Vancouver and i would definitely recommend! The wait between each meal was pretty long because they were so busy but worth the wait! The waffles were thick and rich and the gnocchi was so flavorful and delicious. For dessert I’d recommend the sorbet over the tiramisu but that was tasty too! Great experience.
Vicki Van der Merwe: The well prepared dishes at 2nd room are completed with the live music from Wildwoodfire. Ingredible band. Loved their music.
Ankesh Dhingra: Terrible service, Mediocre Food. The only redeeming factor was the live music.
Jonathan Schulz: had a great night with Re-Vibe live and good food
Lorena Gonzalez: Nice music and good costumer service 👌 👍
Vanessa Davidson: We went to see Just Prince at the 2nd Floor of the Water St. Cafe. The venue had great acoustics and the food was outstanding! An enjoyable evening!
Laura Beaton: Always love the night entertainment here at 2nd floor water Street cafe. Service is efficient and nice and quick. Food is pricey but big portions so you feel satisfied.
Richard J. Sheehan: Great venue.. food.. staff..
J ason: Same as the water Street Cafe
daniel najera: Great atmosphere and incredible food! Had some good wine while enjoying delightful live music. The pasta is a must try!
Monica Mahser: We had dinner for a friends birthday tonight at the 2nd floor and it was amazing! Staff is super friendly, music was great and our gnocchis were astounding! Highly recommend if you want a beautiful night out in Gastown.

Nelle Duncan: Usually this is a great place for poutine, but I just ordered pulled pork on poutine.. I got chunky pork on semi cooked fries
Teresa Ulbricht: Was excellent service and excellent prices and excellent food. My favorite is hot wings.
Erin Keilty: Excellent food, take-out is quick and the staff are polite and professional. I would recommend anything on the menu, it's all great prepared with fresh ingredients. I live above the bar in the Patricia Hotel, so I order from the bar when ever I can. Portions are come with an empty stomach!
Alexander Evans Forsberg: Great pub. Good food great service. Cool staff. Decent prices.
Spoke Spurr: AMAZING FOOD! This calamari is probable THE best (deep fried) I’ve had. I’m pescatarian and I’ve had them all. Coworkers rave about the other menu items too. Burgers, sandwiches, salads…full menu.Full menu. Full bar.The staff are lovely. Don’t let the neighbourhood sway you. COME HERE!Live music, pool, Keno etc.say hi to Gail for me.
Dean Allan Thomas Benton: Good selection of local and imported ales and pilsner and kraft beers with moderate price range.
Matthijs: Amazing place. Feels really off the beaten path and authentic, the live blues set had everybody dancing.
Tim Macdonald: Good free jazz on Monday night. No cover charge and inexpensive drinks.
Dawn Stafford: Great place to spend an afternoon listening to incredible jazz.
Bruno Bruno: Food is decent for the price and the waitress was good. But on top of the terrible location there was a burning smell for nearly 2 hours and nobody did anything to address it.
Inga “Domino” Binga: A cozy historical gem! Feels like a tavern in the day and into an eclectic evening live music or rendez vous pub with large paid parking lot and well lit entrance, wheelchair accessible!
Jose Marino: Greater music and good
Olvar: Had a group of us staying at the hotel upstairs on our way to a cruise. Excellent food and atmosphere, friendly staff and good music.
Mohammedabrahamwhoisdanielvictormudge: Great times here!
David Jolivet: Already answered and posted
kevin Cohen: Great for Saturday afternoon jazz with your brewed in house IPA!
Jory Reibin: Good food nd atmos
Jayson Wing: Great wings, cold beer 🍺 friendly staff
L B: Pat's is great, Nella is super nice and remembered my orders before I ordered them, the dude bartender is funny and always has something nice to say. The food is very good (esp. the cod tacos). I'm only giving Pats a 3 because of how I was treated by a server there 2 nights ago; I don't know her name, but give her 5'3 with long brown hair. Sunday night I ordered only from her, and hadn't drank anywhere else. Like many other times, I minded my own business and was about to leave but the exit doors were locked. The doors to Hastings and the parking lot were bolt locked. I told her that I thought this was a fire code violation and she flipped out on me, opened the door to the hotel lobby, told me I was 86'd forever, that I was drunk, and she asked the hotel manager for my room number. What was all that? For my 2-3 weeks living at the Pat Hotel I very happily ate and drank downstairs many times, but for whatever reason, after I made mention that the doors were locked, this server who had been serving me went berserk. I'm leaving the hotel (which smells great when the craft brewery is making batch) for elsewhere so the barring me from the bar doesn't matter that much, but I do think she needs a review of her customer services skills. Does she even have her Serving It Right? Were it not for this last evenings shenanigans there I'd give Pats a 5.
Brianna Kay Music: BUT, one thing I did notice is that they need more single or double tables to fit more people in. Too many single people taking up 4 spots. Other than that, great place!!!
Laurie M.: Good stage, great jazz band! Ron Johnston trio with Don Stewart, what a treat 😊 Decent beer on tap, and reasonably priced as well. Didn't try the food myself, but it sure look tasty.

K G: So cozy, so tight; so right.
impsquared: Small and cozy
Amir Ghorbani: Very cool venue. I went there for an improv class and loved it. It's obviously in Chinatown so not the best neighborhood though.

Francis Tiernan: Beautiful venue, I was there for comedy, definitely going back
Joel Anderson: Fun place
Jamieson Cole: Saw Alistair Ogden at this venue! Great show and comedian, would come again!
Monice: Intimate and great air quality!
EB: On a cold and grim evening a couple years ago, I was invited by a friend (hey Alex!) to go and check out an event at The China Cloud. A bit reluctant and not knowing what it was about, my expectations were non-existent.What was my surprise after climbing up the stairs to find in front of my eyes one of the most utterly exquisite events I’ve had the pleasure to attend – ever. Imagine a Turkish den (sofas, cushions, carpets everywhere) covered with plants (lots and lots of them) while the beautiful music of an harpist (Elisa Thorn) is being played live. Boy, it was splendid…

Alan Cooke: Great food

Business type: Live music venue

Biltmore Cabaret: what do users think?
Jeff Raimondo: This place has always been a great venue to see a live show! Great sound, nice space, close to the action, room to dance, good bar with decent prices. The private security is kind of a bummer because they don’t really seem to understand or appreciate the organism that is a live music performance (telling people they’re standing in the wrong space, being a bit standoffish when it comes to traffic redirection of the crowd) but it’s not enough to ruin your good time. Long love the Biltmore!
James Duncan: This dirty little basement venue is the place to see artists before they get big. Such a fun time here, highly recommend supporting bands and comedians on their way up, out or wherever… the photo is of Tommy Newport and band.
Gonz VonLog: Love watching live shows here, I’ve seen so many great ones. Only downside is the stage being at ground level, makes it hard to see when crowded
Nathalie Mila: Fun shows, kind staff.
Renu Singh: Friendly staff from bartenders to front door team. Awesome venue for intimate shows! Drinks on the pricey side.
Chaz Williams: Most intimate concert venue, always an amazing show whenever I've visited.
Kelsey Morris: Always a good time! Friendly staff and great music
Karl Poldre: This place rules. Amazing live music. I came in on a Saturday for my Birthday and both the manager, Matt, and the band playing went completely above and beyond to make sure I had a good experience.I will absolutely be back!
mary s: War and TreatyWhat a fabulous showVenue was great
oaksound studio: Great atmosphere and awesome sound system. I love playing here
Vanessa Mousavizadeh: So enjoyed the Jake Wesley Rogers show this March. Fantastic show. Comfortable space, nice ambiance, standard drinks. Really nice, welcoming staff. I would have been so grateful if you'd offered food options. A girl has got to eat! I'll definitely be back but might bring some takeout.
Kurt Yesilcimen: Hard to find the entrance and a bit of a crammed feeling but it's nice to see a smaller venue with decent enough drink options and pinball machines. Came for an event and the seating arrangements were a bit odd. Will have to go back to see it in a different setting.
Scott Alexander: The Biltmore Cabaret cares greatly about their guests hydration and as such has a self-serve free cold water tap. I’d give them 6 gold stars for this alone, but their staff are also friendly and the concert environment is top notch. I do wish the stage was a bit bigger, but its smaller stature provides a more intimate experience.
Chelsea Bowers: One of the best music venues in Vancouver
Nic Bachleitner (Suprastitious): No parking, $8 for a can of lucky and they ask for a tip...acoustics were great but they over sold for seating and numerous people were standing around complaining. Go early if you want to get a seat
Anastassia Zukova: I thought this place was great for a comedy spot. The only less than ideal thing about it is that the entrance is in the alley and it seems to often have homeless here and there (generally, Vancouver seems to have quite a problem with this). But if you come let’s say about 15min before a show, there should be other people in line and that feels much less dodgy. That said I am a female and was waiting by myself because I got there about 30 minutes early, so definitely felt a little uneasy. Other than that, the inside is super Cody and the drinks were good enough. Fun time all in all.
Jesse Neudorf: Awesome place to see a band you like. Good beer. Smaller venue
Byron Pelly: Pretty enjoyable experience, venue was nice. The drinks are a little expensive. They do offer a free water station. I would come back for another event.
Izi Kavazo: Dark and tight, but in the best possible way. It's a great place to see a small band. It feels intimate, but not awkward. There are good nooks and crannies to sit in on the edges and you can see the stage from almost every one.
Hannah Jarvis: Was there for NYE and it was the worst DJ experience of my life. The transitions were brutal and it was really hard to dance to.
mason lemons: Very nice place for live shows

Business type: Live music venue

Commodore Ballroom: what do users think?
Teuh Bousquet: Best music venue in Vancouver, hands down! Super intimate, some seating available on reservation. Never a bad experience!
Emma Turgut: They didn't let us bring our bags in even though there is a bag check inside?? Made trying to get in to see our show super difficult, very inconvenient. Security was also like weirdly forceful and just like when is it ever that deep. I would probably never come back here but it is a pretty venue and the performance was great. Also it is massive.
the Bride of Frankenstein: This place was THE place in Vancouver in the 90s would love to revisit...
Mark Osborne: Commodore is the best indoor music venue on the West Coast! 3 bors, plenty of seating, and amazing staff. I’ve been going there since 1992, when I first saw Pavement on their Wowie Zowie tour. Just recently saw M83 there, and was just as impressed as my 1992 show. Go! Make the drive from SF if you have to!
John Edmeston: Best ever!!! Look at the list of past performers!!! Great acoustics, Dance your face off
Elizabeth Wildeboer: Loved this venue! Such a cool space. Larger than expected with tables along the edge, a large dance floor and balcony
Icarus Skelly: Loud. Yeouchie my ears. Very cool!
Caroline F: Amazing venue with amazing sound!
Kristina Tait: Great venue
olim82: The Commodore is the best venue in Vancouver. It's a smaller intimate venue and no matter where you are seated or standing you'll have a great view or seat. There are 4 different bars to grab a drink so never a long line. Once the artist or band gets going the tires underneath the floor get the place jumping.
Coho Parhar: Best venue in town
Manish Sharma: Awesome place, great music, great food n drinks... perfect place for Friday evening...
Mark Pedicelli: Great live music, great band, good mix of music. Very talented! Loved it.
Byron Pelly: Solid venue, great food, good people, bird up
Ali R: The Commodore is a great venue and the acoustics are very good. It was one heck of an M83 concert!
Andrew Evans: Can't give any venue that doesn't accept cash more than 2 stars no matter how much I love the place
Peter Fenwick: Best place to see a show. Perfect size!
Sam Jones: Awesome venue. Friendly staff. Expensive drinks, although not as expensive as other nearby venues. Parking nearby. Always a good time to be had!
Brent Janzen: Always a great Show at the Commodore !
Tony Klassen: Good atmosphere for a night out.
Mike M: Always a great time here! Love the energy, atmosphere and sound set up. Saw Big Sugar a couple of weeks ago and the pricing was decent. The night was priceless! A legendary venue 😊😊
