Edit: If you want to visit the quintessential Vancouver nightclub, go to the Roxy. All kinds go there, its smack in the middle of Granville, and its famous for all the pro hockey players that go there to pick up chicks. Its usually voted the best place in Vancouver to get laid, and there's always something going on.
Good to see nothing's changed since i spent my summer in Van 6 years ago
OP - Enjoy Big White, you'll have a blast, hope youve got a good job lined up allowing you plenty of boarding time.
