Nightclubs were originally invented as elaborate training grounds for secret agents to practice lip reading amidst the beat of nonstop hip-hop. Add stealthy skills to your résumé with today's Groupon to Shine Night Club, located in historic Gastown on Water Street. Shine Night Club's dimly lit, futuristic interior houses a venerable variety of notable DJs in the hip-hop, dub step, and house music scenes. Groupon users will waltz through a wait-free line into the club, along with four friends, clones, or party chinchillas. Four highball mixed drinks of any kind are included, sans top shelf liquor due to the bartender's irrational fear of heights.
The Comedy MIX lays claim as downtown Vancouver's only club for comedy, and five nights a week it hosts established comedic professionals and up-and-coming amateurs in up-standing displays of hilarity. Tonight Show and Comedy Central veterans, such as Phil Hanley and Lachlan Patterson, frequent the MIX, and you can select a show from their calendar to coordinate the laugh-session with an upcoming breakup or the sudden and inexplicable misplacement of all seven volumes of your other source of humour, A la recherche du temps perdu.
