Local and Live
Known for showcasing some of BC’s best talent, the Backstage Lounge features an Open Mic night every Monday, DJs on Tuesday and live bands throughout the rest of the week. For complete show times and listings check out The Backstage Lounge online.

Dine Inside and Out
The 200-person capacity club is decorated in laid back west coast style with comfy leather seats and sofas. Outside on the banks of False Creek you’ll also find an 80-person waterfront patio open all summer long. The Backstage Lounge is also open for lunch and dinner featuring a menu of all your pub grub favourites. The burgers, wings and nachos are all great as are the lounge’s selection of seafood items. You can also expect to find different drink specials every night of the week.

Do Your Dance Thang
The food is one thing, but the Backstage is primarily known as a live music venue and the bands who take the stage are an electric mix of home grown BC talent. A good-sized dance floor inside ensures a place to do your thing should the entertainment move you. There is a cover charge, but it varies nightly. With a long standing reputation as one of Vancouver’s best live music venues, The Backstage Lounge is a great place to catch a band and its commitment to bringing the best of BC to Granville Island is unparalleled.
