Ocean Club, and Ocean Side Liquor Store, Opens in West Vancouver

Feb 25, 2006

By Catherine Barr


Nightlife in West Vancouver just got a whole lot more exciting thanks to local boys Derek Pink and Dave Kershaw. This dynamic duo, known for their downtown nightclubs Au Bar, Tonic and the Stone Temple, have just opened The Ocean Club ultra lounge and restaurant at the foot of the 100 Park Royal black tower (aka the Kapilano building). They've totally redesigned the old Roseway Travel location and adjacent space into a liquor store and a swanky restaurant/nightclub that stays open until 3 am and caters to a clientele exclusively over the age of 25. It proves to be the perfect place for late night eats and funky beats as well as elegant dinners. But leave your grungies and ball caps at home - this class place has a dress code. And try the "Mac and Cheese" or the "OC Burger" - you won't be disappointed.
