What does the Vancouver Aquarium, Telus World of Science, and the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre all have in common? Some may say they are all kid-friendly, educational establishments. Others would say they’re all great locations to spend a rainy day, but in fact, they are all hosts to entertaining adult-only events that provide a unique activity for date night.

The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre is one of the most recent additions to the adult-only evening events, and will be hosting an after hours experience at their venue on Thursday, October 13th for Cosmic Nights: Science of Science Fiction, a party for the geek in all of us!

Vancouver Date Idea: The Force Awakens at the Dunbar Theatre

Dunbar Theatre

I’ve been going to the Dunbar Theatre (4555 Dunbar St) ever since I was a kid. I grew up near quaint Dunbar Village and even though I now live in Fairview, it still feels like home. The other night when my boyfriend and I decided to see the new Star Wars movie, there was no question that we were going to the Dunbar Theatre. After all, I once spotted Ryan Reynolds pre-Scarlett Johansson with Alanis Morissette there. Maybe he and Blake Lively would be at the theatre this time?

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Dunbar Theatre, here’s why it’s my go-to destination for movie dates.

Vancouver’s Cloud 9 Revolving Restaurant: Dining & Partying with a 360° View

mum vancouver-68

Vancouver’s Cloud 9 Restaurant, the revolving restaurant on the 42nd floor of the Empire Landmark Hotel in downtown Vancouver, has long been a favourite nightspot of mine. It’s one of the go-to places I always take visiting friends and family; I took my Brazilian in-laws there for after-dinner drinks and dessert so they could see the full glory of Vancouver at night, via Cloud 9’s endless 360° view (and enjoy the cocktails and food, too). They loved it!

One thing I hadn’t done before, though, was attend a private party there. Last weekend, I got to do just that: A friend has his birthday party at a Cloud 9 VIP room (part of the main lounge area—so you can hear the weekend DJ—but separated by low walls so it nonetheless feels “private”). As a party venue, I thought it was perfect; it has such a night-on-the-town, cosmopolitan vibe. After sunset, Cloud 9’s fiber optic ceiling lights give the impression of a sky full of stars, while the 20-foot high windows showcase the glory of Vancouver’s nighttime skyline, from the lights of Lion Gate Bridge to the skyscraper Shangri-La.

Top 10: Vancouver Nightclubs & Nightlife

Crowds at the Roxy Cabaret, downtown Vancouver

One of the best things about hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics is one that rarely gets mentioned: meeting people from all over the world everywhere you go, whether it’s at sporting events, on the Canada Line, or dancing next to you at the Roxy….

Given the centrality of downtown Vancouver—the hot spot for nightly Victory Ceremonies at BC Place, hockey games at Canada Hockey Place (GM Place), and the biggest 2010 Olympics party places—you can bet the downtown nightlife will be sizzling-hot, too.

Insider’s Guide to the Perfect Date Night

Granville Island
The following post was contributed by Tourism Vancouver’s own Wendy Surkan, Manager, Meeting & Convention Sales, Eastern US. Born and raised in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, Wendy has lived in Vancouver for the past 22 years where she and her husband enjoy all the excitement the city has to offer. Read below for Wendy’s guide to the perfect date night:

Vancouver may be known for its scenic splendor and great food, but what animates the city is the annual 10-day jazz festival leading up to Canada Day. In its 25th year in 2010, from June 25 – July 4 from noon to the wee small hours, a rich tapestry of jazz, blues, Funk, Latin, fusion and world music fills the air at venues big and small, indoor and outdoor across the city. By taking the music to parks, community spaces, concert halls, clubs, public plazas and neighbourhood streets, the Jazz Festival electrifies the city with over 400 concerts – 150 of them free – and moves the souls of more than 500,000 people each year.
