The legendary Club Bud (Budweiser, not BC bud) will be setting up shop in Vancouver after all. It wasn’t easy as they aren’t official sponsors (that belongs to Molson) of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. However, if you plan on going, don’t get your hopes up as this party is pretty exclusive. Let’s just put it this way, assume you’re with a group of 5 guys wearing Affliction and Ed Hardy (yuck!) tees trying to get in a club on Granville and you get the picture.
In February 2010, Club Bud will transform the famed Commodore Ballroom into the place for athletes, celebrities and some lucky fans to celebrate in style.
Club Bud will be located on pedestrian-friendly Granville Street in the heart of Vancouver’s entertainment district. The 19,000-square foot, 1,000-person capacity, multi-level venue will feature a concert stage, elevated seating, several bar and lounge areas and the legendary 2,646-square foot sprung dance floor. Partygoers will enjoy live DJs and music throughout the night and three separate bar areas will offer distinct atmospheres to enjoy a cold Budweiser with friends.
Club Bud party co-hosts Burton, the National Hockey League (NHL), Under Armour and lululemon athletica will present themed evenings, with doors opening at 9 p.m. Athlete and celebrity arrival times on the red carpet will vary by party. More information will be available via media advisories prior to each event.

– Thursday, February 25: Budweiser Party
– Friday, February 26: Under Armour Party

“Budweiser is renowned for its exclusive parties and guests,” said Richard Musson, Vice President of Marketing, Labatt Breweries of Canada. “Club Bud is bringing Vancouver five epic parties and will be the place to be for competitors to come together to celebrate their achievements and enjoy the camaraderie shared among world-class athletes.”
In addition to drawing top name athletes and celebrities to Club Bud, Budweiser is searching for two lucky people to crash the parties in Vancouver. The Club Bud Party Crasher job search offers applicants the chance to attend one of the Club Bud weekends and will require the winner to use social media tools to capture and share the Club Bud experience online.
