GRANVILLE STREET IN DOWNTOWN VANCOUVER, July 9, 2021. Granville Street is Vancouver’s Entertainment District with shops, theatres, nightclubs, pubs and restaurants. Granville is a historic part of the city currently changing with new businesses and buildings.

Granville Street has a unique character. There are murals and artworks on this street. The mural in front of Venue Nightclub is a Thank You to Healthcare Workers. Nice stop for a photo. Unfortunately for partygoers, the nightclub is closed and up for sale!

Let’s see what’s happening on Granville Street!

At Granville and Smithe there is Dublin Calling, Movieland Arcade, Roxy Burger, Vogue Theatre, Cinema Pub, Speakeasy. Movieland Arcade is famous for being an odd rundown quarter arcade that manages to survive the times. How many more years will it survive?


Cinema Pub is owned by Donnelly Group who also owns Lamplighter, and Railway. Cinema Pub is most famous for Shia LaBeouf getting beat up outside in 2011.
