Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and
has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs

city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday
nights are the most popular and lively, with young

the party going until late. Granville Street, being
mostly open to pedestrian-only traffic, has a healthy
