It's Just You and the Dance Floor: Vancouver's Best Dance Clubs

Depending on the type of music and atmosphere you're into, Vancouver has a club with a dance floor that's ready for you.

Fortune Sound Club is where you will find well known names of DJs from around the world. This venue attracts world-class acts and has been a pioneer in Vancouver's nightlife scene for a number of years now. Fortune has set up shop in Vancouver's Chinatown, where you're just a stone's throw from hip and trendy bars that are perfect for pre-dancing dinner and drinks.

If you're looking for a club that looks as good as you on a night out, head to Playhouse Nightclub in Davie Village. The gorgeous club spins non-stop beats that'll keep you moving all night long. Need some fresh air? Head out to the heated patio that's open all year long.

Celebrities on Davie Street is Vancouver's most well known LGBT night club where all walks of life are welcome to dance and have a great time. One of the most popular nights of the week is Tuesdays at Celebrtites. They have rotating resident DJs, cheap hi-ball drinks, and an inclusive atmosphere that makes it one of the most fun places to go dancing.
