Why Kaplan English students love the Vancouver nightlife

Even in the middle of a cold Canadian winter, Vancouver nightlife never fails to turn up the heat.


Come in from the snow to a warm welcome from Vancouver’s after-dark scene, starting with the alluring glow of the candles in the elegant, low lit Revel room. Here you can fill up on steaming plates of hearty American food favourites while you sip on unique cocktail creations like the ‘Englishman in Kentucky’.


Next on the Vancouver nightlife list is the Railway club, the charming venue that used to be a lively meeting place for Railway line workers. Thankfully, nowadays everyone is invited to this toasty warm traditional Vancouver pub and live music venue, which has launched the careers of several big independent artists over the years.

A trip to Vancouver’s popular Boss nightclub next is sure to increase the temperature by a few degrees. Come here on salsa night, and dance the night away to steamy Latin rhythms under the club’s colourful bright lights. Vancouver’s lively young population and students from Kaplan’s Vancouver English language school also love the Cellar underground club. Here, DJ’s mix the latest hip hop, dance and electro beats and lucky party-goers can win at the club’s weekly cash prize giveaways.

If all that sounds too hot to handle, try the high life at radiant French fine dining restaurant ‘Lumière’ or views of Vancouver’s glittering skyline from the Top of Vancouver revolving restaurant. Finish this first-class night out at the atmospheric Bar None lounge, where Vancouver’s most famous faces go to sip champagne on luxurious leather sofas.
