Excellent Venue: The Commodore Ballroom is one of Vancouver's last great venues that has modernized itself with current trends without forgetting the roots of beginnings. <br/><br/>I've had the joyous experience of watching many of my favourite bands perform here over the years. Everything from gothic rock to rhythm and blues, mention the Commodore Ballroom and you know you'll have a great time. Given a misrepresentation from it's location, the Commodore Ballroom is refined and elegant while still remaining raw and natural to both it's audience and it's performers. <br/><br/>I would recommend checking out your favourite bands, performers and artists anytime they visit Vancouver and perform at the Commodore Ballroom. It will truly be an experience to remember.

Editorial Reviews

"After all these years", this Downtown "landmark", a circa-1929 dance club/performance venue with "art deco styling", remains a "must-do" for "super live music" proffered in a space that's "not too big or small"; though a few cite "expensive" tabs and hit-or-miss service, devotees insist "it's a joy to be in."

Every town should have one, but sadly very few do: a huge old-time dance hall, complete with a suspended hardwood dance floor. And though the room and floor date back to the Jazz Age, the lineup nowadays includes many of the best modern bands coming through town. In fact, the Commodore is one of the best places to catch a midsize band.

Back when artists performed in swank theatres rather than sports stadiums, the Commodore hosted some of the world’s top acts. Seventy years later, with an updated sound system and large, springy dance floor, it’s still one of Vancouver’s best live-music venues Crowd Emo kids one day, aging punk-rock dads the next On stage Check for acts like 54-40, Martha Wainwright, and Billy Bragg along with...

Stunning the Granville strip since 1929, some of the world’s best musical acts from Count Basie to the Ramones have graced this stage. Oversized, arched Art Deco windows give an elegant feel to the renovated space. Music’s cognoscenti, older artists and nose-to-grindstone grown-ups in need of soulful relaxation frequent the venue. Table-lined sprung dance floor gives maximum bounce per boogie...
