"Casual pub atmosphere with live music" Top 5 Page for this destination Backstage Lounge, the Tip by Carmanah

Backstage Lounge, the, Vancouver: 3 reviews and 2 photos

The Backstage Lounge (frequently known as the Arts Club Backstage Lounge) is a local institution. It functions as a restaurant (with a large patio), a pub, a bar for which Arts Club Theatre patrons visit during intermissions, and a live music venue. On most nights the Arts Club Backstage Lounge features local musicians - rock bands, singers/songwriters, folk singers, and such. Most of the musicians are known in the local music scene but a large majority of them are just starting out. Even I played a gig at the Backstage Lounge several years ago with a friend's band - it's that kind of place.

Dress Code: No dress code - everyone is welcome as they are.

Address: 1585 Johnson Street, Vancouver
Directions: Located on Granville Island at the back of the Arts Club Theatre (right next to the Granville Island Public Market). It's also located at the top of the Aquabus water taxi dock.
