After more than five years of operations, one of Vancouver’s largest nightclubs has shuttered its doors.
“For now, our time has come to an end,” reads a post on the nightclub’s Facebook page. “Thank you to all of our loyal customers and corporate clients – we enjoyed more than five years of unforgettable events with you all.”
Five Sixty Nightclub is located on the 500 block of Seymour Street in downtown Vancouver, within a large building that formerly housed the old A&B Sound store, the flagship store of a chain that sold CDs and records.
Prior to occupation, the 28,000-square-foot, four-level chic space was extensively renovated at a cost of $4 million and holds a capacity for up to 500 people.
Each floor had its own arts-centric theme, including the main dance floor with expansive video art media walls. There is a large mezzanine lounge that overlooks the dance floor and on the main level, adjacent to the dance floor, is another lounge and bar.
The large basement level has unisex washrooms and its own DJ, dance floor and bar while the top floor was once purposed as art galleries.
The nightclub first opened its doors in the spring of 2010, right after the Olympics. Nightclub operators are expected to announce a new project over the coming months.
