April in Vancouver: 5 Ways to Celebrate

Published on April 9, 2014 by staff


According to the calendar, Spring time is here! Erm… you hear us, Canada? It’s time to put our gloves back in storage and grab our cold pints barehanded to celebrate the highly anticipated warmer days – well, at least technically.

So what should we do this April in Vancouver while we wait for the winter to finally go away and prepare our tank tops and hot bikini bods to be out and about soon? There’s nothing left but… to party, of course! ClubZone has put together a list of 5 parties and events you absolutely should not miss this month in Vancouver. Take a look and lets celebrate!

1. #HouseParty: Pre-game for the NHL playoffs

A great night out always starts off with a bunch of friends at someone’s house, drink in hand and great conversation flowing. With the NHL playoffs kicking off early, this is the perfect excuse to start drinking even earlier – not that you actually need one, eh! Throw your own NHL playoffs party to warm up for the night ahead and make things interesting with a ‘Maple Leaf Cocktail’! This cocktail resembles a spiced up martini with a delicious heavy Canadian twist, thanks to the punch of our Canadian whiskey and our beloved maple syrup. All you need is:

• ¼ oz. lemon juice
• ½oz. Canadian maple syrup
• 1 oz. Crown Royal Whiskey

Pour all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake, babe, shake. Drain the blend into a martini glass enjoy along with an exciting hockey match. Sip slowly as you think about all the bad decisions you’ll probably make in a few hours. Check the official NHL playoffs schedule HERE to plan your night. #GoCanucks!



2. #FoodParty: Surrender to the deliciousness of a food truck

Whether you have no time to cook or just love having someone else do it for you, there is no denying that food trucks are the bomb. And when it comes to quality, quantity and proximity, food trucks are a great option for killing those cravings! Pizza, sushi, grilled cheese, tacos, burgers… you name it, they have it. Check streetfoodapp or download the app on your phone to learn about about all the food trucks around the city and their time-schedule. Bon Appétit!

4. #PsyParty: Trance away with Infected Mushroom

5. #UFCParty: Check out The Locker Room Pub

When: Something special every night! Check their party schedule.

Lets be honest: it’s hard to find a place that’s a ton of fun and doesn’t require you to spend every last penny. But at The Locker Room Pub you’ll always find the best ingredients to make it a great night out. Pool tables, karaoke and sports are combined with amazing food, great music and a chill ambiance that does not disappoint. If you want to get your money’s worth, get there early and enjoy a delicious meal for less than $5 (3pm-7pm), then keep the party going with the rotating drink specials and an awesome selection of 12 beers on tap. For sports fans, The Locker Room offers many special nights broadcasting different events. On April 26th, they invite you to get your boxing gloves on and watch Jones vs Teixeira #UFC172 fight – get on the list with ClubZone.

PS: To all you instagram junkies: The Locker Room Pub has wifi. However, we encourage everyone to play the phone stacking game and maybe score a few drinks off your tech-addict friends ;)
