See You Tonight–Dinner, Drinks, and a Show

Day 1


Start your evening with dinner at Artusi, a local favourite serving contemporary rustic Italian cuisine inspired by the philosophy of living and eating well. Reflecting the many regions of Italy, their menu features decadent pastas, fresh salads and starters. Order a classic Italian cocktail like a negroni or an Aperol Spritz to set the mood for a night out on the town.

412 Sixth Street

Make your way downtown and pull a rabbit out of your hat when you lead your companions to a fake business facade concealing a one-of-a-kind show at Hidden Wonders Speakeasy Magic Experience. Small-scale illusions in an intimate (and secret) setting are designed to leave you enthralled.

Downtown New Westminster (location revealed after ticket purchase confirmed)

Find the single red door and give the super secret passcode (“is this the flophouse?”) and step into a Prohibition-inspired speakeasy for a little “giggle water” (that’s cocktails and drinks to regular folk.)

Open late, The Flapper Lounge celebrates the trailblazers and rule-breakers of the Prohibition era, and it’s the perfect place to live it up for the rest of your night.

Day 2


Gather your crew and grab a table at the  Howe Sound Taphouse & Kitchen  (formerly The Met Bar & Grill) for tasty pub fare and local brews to get the good times rolling.

411 Columbia Street

Before you head out for the night, check out what’s on at the Massey Theatre, a New West venue known for hosting world-class live entertainment all year round, from internationally-renowned musicians to local dance and theatre.

 735 Eighth Avenue

For more show options, the Anvil Centre Theatre is another state-of-art performance space that hosts shows ranging from cutting-edge theatre to traditional orchestra music.

 777 Columbia Street

Slip into  Moodswing Coffee & Bar  after the show for  ‘cosmically’ good cocktails (like the Goblin Moon), Mexican-inspired plant forward late night snacks and music. Neon lights and live djs spinning in an intimate setting set the magic ‘moody’ after hours atmosphere.

655 Front Street
