One of the crown jewels of Vancouver’s lounge scene has closed: The Emerald Supper Club has officially shut its signature, vibrant green doors.

The 555 Gore Avenue cocktail destination was known for delighting its patrons with the charm of Chinatown and old-school Vegas vibes all at once.

In addition to being a former dim sum restaurant, this spot operated four different environments within itself, complete with eclectic eats, drinks, and entertainment.

The owner of The Narrow Group, David Duprey, told Dished Vancouver the space was sold to new owners and he wishes them all the best.

“For us, The Emerald was an amazing seven-and-a-half-year ride. We really enjoyed and want to thank everyone who came down for all the crazy parties, bands, and half-price cocktail night debauchery,” said Duprey.

“We had such a great time and hope you all did as well. We really saw the neighbourhood blossom into a truly cool hybrid of art and culture that I know, with all the new spots opening up Chinatown will only get cooler.”

Be sure to return to Dished Vancouver to see what’s taking over The Emerald’s former space.
