Most provinces have made drinking alcohol at home illegal because of the proliferation of home facial-tattoo machines. Enjoy alcohol in public with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two covers, VIP lineup, and six drinks (up to an $82.50 total value) at Joe's Apartment, located on Granville Street.
Joe's Apartment envelops carousers in an unpretentious atmosphere with live music, engaging bartenders, and a considerable dance floor. Skip the long wait and saunter up to the VIP line with two covers ($24 total) in tow and a yarn carnation tucked into your lapel. Souse a draft beer ($5.75) or get your daily dose of veggies with the signature pickle back, a shot of Jameson followed by a pickle juice chaser. Bartenders genially ring Joe's Bell and salute any tipplers taking a shot or reciting the complete works of Proust, and appearances by alternative rock bands, hip-hop acts, karaoke, stand-up, and house band The Roommates keep the air molecules vibrating with convivial frequencies (see the calendar of events). Bedecked with crystalline chandeliers, gleaming wooden floors, and a lively pool table, the interior glitters with as much decadence as domesticity.
