We saw Bad Religion here while we were in Vancouver. We did not pre purchase tickets, we did wait in line for an hour and a half to see if they would release any extras, and they did. This place is very spacious, far more spacious than you would think it was from the outside, but certainly more intimate than... More

Great place to see a sow or concert. There are staff and security here who are so helpful and friendly. Places to grab a bite or drink no line ups really as there is a lot.

Great place to see a show, lots of places to get a drink without waiting forever. Staff is chill and security is uncommonly friendly. Overall always a good venue!

My first visit to The Commodore Ballroom was to see Milky Chance in May. It was an incredible experience all around. Location is perfect, service was stellar and the entertainment was top notch. I'd like to visit the Commodore monthly because of their outstanding headliners and off the charts spaghetti Bolognese 🍛 We had the greatest of experiences that night,... More

Of the more than 20 concert venues I've seen Alternative Rock bands recently, the Commodore Ballroom is my favorite. It is an intimate setting with character. This time we sat at a table on the mezzanine. The view was great and the sound pretty good. We also ordered food. The Ceasar salad, Mushroom Flatbread, Burger and fries as well as... More

My first visit to the Commodore to see The Devil Makes Three (Sold Out). Doors opened at 8, we got there about 20 minutes early and stood in a decent sized line. Doors opened promptly at 8, the line moved quickly and we were able to get a small table on the first tier next to the dance floor. Bar... More

My first experience at the Commodore Club. Geat venue for a party that's for sure. I attended a wedding. Two levels in the club, multiple bas, stage for band and DJ set-up. Very popular place to go and see the latest bands in Vancouver. Totally enjoyed it.

We watched 'Big Wreck' perform here and had an amazing night. We had reserved seating ahead of time which meant we got to skip the line up and get escorted straight to our table. There was plenty of room to move around, even on the floor. Security was great. Service was great. It was clean and the ginger beer was... More

The character, good sound and atmosphere of this place makes going to a concert there rarely a bad choice. The floor used to have horse hair under it to create a bounce when you danced but sadly that was removed years ago (fire hazard or some such thing). This is one of the few live music venues in YVR while... More
