Nightlife in Richmond


Select Local Merchants

  • E-Spot
    E-Spot combines the best parts of a pool hall and arcade to keep visitors entertained well into the night. On one side of the 18,000-square-foot, warehouse-like facility, billiards players drill shots on 26 mahogany tables?17 of which are for pool, 9 of which are for snooker, and none of which are for puppet repairs. Not far away, competitors trade cues for keyboards in a massive Internet-gaming area. There, 52 computers?each outfitted with subwoofer speakers?and high-speed Internet allow for hours-long marathons spent playing popular titles. Friends can also face off in E-Spot's arcade and mah-jong rooms, and the caf? fuels gameplay with snacks and caffeine-loaded drinks.

  • Rendezvous Club
    Rendezvous Club may not have a hidden stock of cupid’s arrows, but it does have its fair share of date cards. While they may not be as whimsical as love-yielding weaponry, club founders Hillary and Chris have found they tend to be just as effective. At some chapters, Rendezvous Club's hosts hand the cards out during speed-dating parties and dinner-dating events that serve three-course meals. Using them, singles can jot down the names, characteristics, and preferred Monopoly game pieces of people they’re interested in meeting again. For those who prefer more organic dating atmospheres, Select locations feature less-structured singles parties and mix-and-mingle events that round up singles and let them converse on their own, aided by complimentary appetizers.

  • Festival Cinemas Ltd
    The friendly filmwheelers at Fifth Avenue Cinemas screen an eclectic mix of mainstream hits and little-known independent flicks in their Burrard Street theatre. Your Groupon is good for two tickets plus a large serving of popcorn, blanketed in a rich coat of real butter and made from corn that contains no genetically modified organisms or evil-sauce. The theatre boasts snuggle-inducing "love seats," in which each armrest can be raised so you and your date or anthropomorphic dachshund can cuddle throughout the film. Upcoming flicks include Philip Seymour Hoffman's feature-film directorial debut, Jack Goes Boating, and Woody Allen's upcoming You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger.

  • Backstage Lounge
    Combining a full-scale restaurant with diverse and vibrant live music offerings, the Backstage Lounge indulges both needy palates and harmony-hungry eardrums. Peruse the menu and start out with an opening act of yam fries ($7.95) or ahi tuna bites ($13.95) before acquainting hard-to-get tongue buds with a tempting tandoori chicken pizza with caramelized onions and pineapple curry sauce ($13.95). Enjoy some sea-faring snacks with a salmon focaccia sandwich ($13.95), or hunker down with a plate of seared cod gnocchi ($15.95) before singing restive lullabies to your pasta's captive audience of lemon-pesto sauce, roasted leeks, and cherry tomatoes.

  • Pink Ink Theatre Productions
    The company plans to organize a script-development workshop to support its current playwright-in-residence, Sean Devine, as he crafts his second full-length play, Except in the Unlikely Event of War. During the three-day workshop, actors will read through and rehearse the script so that Devine can hear his words spoken and get an idea of what works and what doesn't on stage. This process can prove immeasurably useful when it comes to editing and rewriting the play. The workshop concludes with an audience viewing to get feedback from an informed public and prepare the work for the stage.
