We’ve all experienced this common conundrum: we need a place to celebrate an occasion, with a ton of people, without inflicting a rowdy (and super expensive) restaurant takeover on the staff.
And while there are plenty of solid spots in Vancouver where you can roll deep with the crew and live it up in style, The Emerald Supper Club is one of those under-the-radar gems that does parties best.

The cool-factor here starts from the inconspicuous bright green door you enter through. The former home of a dim sum restaurant, The Emerald has all the charm of Chinatown and old-school Vegas vibes rolled into one.
Besides the top-notch service, the wide selection of food, craft beer, and the unreal house cocktail selection, the space itself just suits group outings. This lies in the fact that there are several private rooms in the 3,000-sq-ft space including The Lounge, The Dining Room, and The Back Cabaret (all complete with private bars).
But the offerings here go further than simply food and drink, entertainment is always an option at The Emerald’s parties too. For those aiming to really turn it up, there’s a dance floor and space for a live band or DJ, along with a state-of-the-art sound, lighting, and AV system.
Small intimate groups or large-scale events, folks can really customize this space to suit what vibe they’re after.
From photo booths and ice sculptures, candy bar stations and chocolate fountain desserts, to Vegas-style showgirls and burlesque-o-grams or singing telegrams – staff at this joint have seen it all and know how to accommodate one killer party.
Whether you’re hosting a reception, a dinner party, or a reunion, there’s really no denying that The Emerald is a total gem when it comes to group celebrations.
