Avoid the hype
Along Davie Street, a few blocks east of the razzle dazzle neon lights of Granville, 555 Vibes avoids the hype. The atmosphere is laid back lounge with good music spinning nightly, perfect for pre or post bar hopping. On a busy night, there are three rooms open in the club that with different local and guest DJs spinning funky lounge beats–anything from house to drum n’ bass.
555 Vibes opens early in the evening and stays open late. The club’s different lounge rooms are separated by dark corridors with original art pieces on the walls, giving the place a mystical vibe. The Velvet Lounge in the back has comfortable lounge chairs and couches and a sexy backlit bar with a waterfall. The lounges can be booked for special private or corporate events.
Good food, good drinks
With great deals on beer and martini, 555 Vibes is classy without being pretentious. There are drink specials on beers and cocktails. Original martinis, like the Polar Ice Cap with vodka, blue curacoa, and passionfruit liqueur, are at prices that are hard to come by in this city. Excellent tapas and appies are served late into the night, courtesy of the club’s resident French chef. Forget about lining up at the hotdog stand after the bar and go for tasty chicken and seafood skewers, wild mushrooms or prawns on rice. There is also a full wine list for international and local tastes. In this relaxing vibe, it’s easy to wind down after a crazy night out on the town.
