What a Hoot!
You know what live music venues in this city have been lacking? Dumplings.
Until now. The Electric Owl has just opened in the space that once housed Main Street’s American Hotel. And it is virtually unrecognizable. The 8,000-square-foot venue is home to an izakaya-style restaurant, sake bar, and cold beer and wine shop. But that’s not all. The space centres around a stage that showcases international acts and some of Vancouver’s finest new music.
Finally! We can catch a show, scarf down a midnight snack, and pick up a bottle of sake all in one place. —KD
