    Fantastic old-school-style ballroom w/ the bouncy floor (just like the Crystal in PDX) and tiered seating. Views from everywhere and very attentive staff.

    Cool place with lots of history. Load in is a massive pain if you are carrying lots of production though

    My favourite place in Vancouver to see a show as I'm convinced there isn't a single bad location in the room to see or hear the band. Cheers to the acoustic engineer who helped design this venue.

    A great historic venue with classy decor, ambiance, acoustics and a wooden dance floor that feels like its gonna cave in underneath you when everybody's hopping!

    Best live music venue in Vancouver Period. Smokers: There are no in and out privileges. Also if the back (main) bar is busy, you’d be surprised how fast the Granville and Alley side Bars move. Read more

    Ladies bathroom (if you can call it that, cause damn some of you girls are nasty!) smells like something died and had little death babies. Yowza! Breathe through your mouths ladies...

    If upstairs open, skip the wait & go to the washroom upstairs. Men & women ;-)

    The spring dance floor is legend. So are some of the performances that took place here. The Clash played their first North American show here in 1979. More at link below. Read more

    Across the city, possibly across the country, maybe throughout the world, was a sigh of contentment when the Commodore Ballroom reopened in the latter part of 1998. Read more

    Go in here early to your favorite band's concert. Save yourself a spot right in front of the stage. Bring a camera and take lots of pictures!
