The hugely popular Colony Group is opening a fourth location on the ever-lively Granville strip this spring called the Colony Entertainment District.
Opening at 967 Granville street in the former Caprice Nightclub, the 15,000 square foot space will also house a full arcade section, which will include a solid mix of pool, foosball and shuffle board. What’s more, these additions have been provided by retro arcade game enthusiast Kyle Sellers of East Van Amusements.
“We are thrilled to open Colony Entertainment District in a location that has been an integral part of Blueprint’s history for more than a decade,” says Bill Kerasiotis, Principal at Blueprint. “The Granville entertainment scene is changing and we’re very excited to have Colony be a part of this new era.”
The new locale hopes to join in the revitalization of Granville Street, bringing diversity in myriad ways. Further, it aims to become a premier choice for music, food and drink lovers, sports fans and gaming enthusiasts. It will also have a wide selection of craft beer, delectable cocktails, and quality food.
And, with 15 big screen TVs, it will be the perfect place for sports fans to watch a variety of matches. From North American major sports to international soccer, rugby to pay per-view events, they will be able to enjoy all of their favourite events amongst food, drink and friends.
The venue will also showcase Vancouver’s first-ever, custom-made indoor bocce court and a weekly league night.
“We couldn’t be happier that Colony is coming to Granville. This new concept will cater to the changing demographic on Granville Street, which now includes more young professionals like the 700 Deloitte staff members working out of Spaces, the recently completed coworking office,” says Charles Gauthier, President and CEO of the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association.
“Colony will contribute to the transformation of the Granville Entertainment District into a vibrant destination, and we look forward to welcoming them to the downtown core.”
