Ok a couple of my friends are heading up to Vancouver friday night. They want to do some Karaoke and then later go to some clubs. What are some good ones?

You guys are white right?

Karoke bars? I dont know any that feature all English songs and Im not sure what your into. There are a couple in Richmond where you can rent rooms and sing to your hearts delight.

The one I usually go to is Happy OK Karoke in Richmond, its on Westminister RD, just past Number 3 road going west.

There are actually tons in Richmond, but they are all predominantly chinese. Most do have a limited selection of english songs though.

As for Night Clubs, I think downtown (Granville St.) will suit you boys and gals. Ones to look for are the Roxy, Babalu's, are some of the ones Ive been to.

Sonar is my favourite, it is in Gastown. I havent been clubbing for a while though, so things may have changed

Stay away from bars and clubs on DAVIE ST. Unless your into that

Here are some addresses.

Do it all downtown heh. Karaoke bars downtown...try Tokyo Lounge or Hollywood North. If you want good (recent) English songs, there's a place called Mike's in Burnaby at Station Square.

As for clubs...someone else could help you more, I don't club. But I've heard a couple names tossed about...Sonar, Plaza...lots more I'm sure.

what music are you into?

Here's my thoughts on some of the clubs:

Roxy... typical meat market, quite a few cougars, canadian top 40 and live cover band.

Babalu's... pretty much the same as Roxy, canadian top 40

Plaza... very young crowd. When my friend spinned there a few months ago it was dance/r&b, they've since changed music formats

Purple Onion... Mixed crowd, mainly r&b, some urban (dance floor side), Lounge side has live jazz.

Wett Bar... Mixed crowd, staff has major attitude. Haven't been there lately, don't no what they play anymore.

Au Bar... Upscale top40 club, expensive drinks, lots of eye candy

The restaurant underneath the Purple Onion, if I recall correctly, also has Karaoke.

Ethan! So you decided to spend some of your fly American green here eh? Still driving the Lincoln?

Let us know how the clubbing / karaoke turns out! I'm just getting to know the town as well and appreciate the pointers from everyone.

Have fun.

Ethan,

just as blackskull asked, what type of music are you into?

Once we establish that, we can move onto where to go.

That's OK, the ladies can learn a thing or two from the Surrey girls.

I was just at Happy-OK the other night.
They have a decent selection of English songs.

Problem with some of the songs is that the lyrics aren't 100% right!!! It's quite funny trying to sing a song that you know what the words are and then something else comes up on the screen!!!!
