There’s nothing better than seeing your favorite band perform live, especially if it's in an intimate venue where there isn't a bad seat in the house. Vancouver’s music scene is thriving and you'll find both big names headlining shows at huge stadiums and up-and-coming artists taking the stage at smaller venues.
The Commodore Ballroom and Vogue Theatre on Granville Street attract well-known artists, along with up-and-coming bands from around the world. The limited capacity means that you’re guaranteed a good view from any spot in the house. The Granville Street Entertainment district is where you'll find a handful of different venues, many of which are rich in history and have been around for decades.
If you like a laid back atmosphere, a solid section of craft beer, and indie bands, head to The Cobalt on Main Street for a fun night. An added bonus? The tickets are inexpensive and the drinks are reasonably priced. When they're not hosting concerts, they're busy hosting pinball tournaments and dance parties.
Whether you're in the mood to fire it up on the dance floor or enjoy a casual drink with soothing tunes, there's something for everyone in Vancouver.
