From Bowling to Champagne: Vancouver's Best Early Entertainment

Sometimes we just have to hit the sack early. Whether it's work, life, or an early morning hike planned, getting a good night's sleep is a must. However, that doesn't mean to say that you can't go out and have a good time. Check out these Vancouver places for a fun time while still getting to bed well before midnight.

Let's be real. Who doesn't love a bowling party? Commodore Lanes & Billiards is fully licensed and open from morning until late. Whether you want to shoot a few games of pool, or strike out on the bowling lane, Commodore is a fun and kitschy time.

If it's something a little more refined you're after, Mosquito in Gastown is a delicious spot to check out. This champagne and dessert bar is the perfect spot to go after dinner for a sweet treat and night cap. 

When it's a stiff drink you want, it's a stiff drink you'll get at the Shameful Tiki Room. This classic tiki bar makes drinks that will pack a punch and leave you feeling warm from the inside out. It fills up quickly as there are 50 seats, so getting there for an early night out is actually quite perfect. 

Depending on what you're in the mood for, these early entertainment options will do the trick.
