Fortune Sound Club, located in what used to be Ming’s Chinese Restaurant, has lured in the young, artistic, strange, music loving population of this city to Chinatown of all places. This hipster paradise houses the best sound system in Vancouver structured by walls wrapped in art work compiled by street artist, Shepard Fairey and street wear designers Rock Klotz and Kenta Goto.
No need to map quest your desired location, just head toward the one and only line stretching the streets of Chinatown. A line like that on both a Friday and Saturday night means one thing – it’s probably where you want to be.
Seeing as I have a thing (a huge thing) for the hipster men of this city, Fortune was my heaven. If you are in search of a clean cut individual feel free to head else where. Literally anything goes clothes wise, express yourself! Besides the fact that there was a vintage 90’s fashion show taking place the night I was present, I saw everything from leather short shorts to overalls and neon hats similar to those my mom purchased for me as a child in the 90’s.
Equipped with several eco friendly bars, a stage, and a dance floor large enough for your most extravagant moves, be sure to wear your dancing shoes (by dancing shoes I mean “hipster” shoes, that you can dance in). Although I’m not a huge fan of clubs, I must admit Fortune has persuaded me otherwise. With a fun group of people, music played in its optimal state, art and handsome men (who look questionably unshowered in a good way) to stare at, what more can a single ask for?
