The Gordon MacMillan Southam Observatory is a 10 meter diameter observatory dome holding a Cassegrain telescope. It offers you to explore the skies around Vancouver, gaze in the stars and see how it looks from this side of the world. Knowledgeable guides will answer your questions and lead you on the Milky Way through galaxy. Admission to the observatory is by donation, decide yourself how much the experience is worth.

It is located next to the HR MacMillan Space Centre, 1100 Chestnut Street in Kitsilano, and open Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm in the summer. To confirm observatory opening hours please call (604) 738-2855.

Vancouver Welcomes CLUB 560

I’ve been in Vancouver for over 8years now so I think I know Vancouver’s nightscene quite well. Vancouver nightclubs tend to be one-trick ponies, as so cleverly quoted by one of my friends. They all seem to have one room/space, one DJ and one theme that runs throughout. So my friends I are looking for something new, something that’ll liven up Vancouver’s scene a little and I think I might have found it…

A friend of mine, on her way home from work, came across “Five Sixty” located at 560 Seymour Street. Previously home to the old A&B Sound Store this place is much MUCH larger then most local nightclubs-it 28,000 sq. ft spread out over 4 FLOORS! This is something that reminds me of the clubs I used to visit back in Europe. This space can allow up to 500 people to walk around freely and choose between THREE DIFFERENT & SEPARATE mini-clubs each with its own DJ. I mean what more could you ask for?! It took over a year and close to $4million to convert this retail building to a nightclub and the end result will not disappoint.

One of the most amazing parts of this spot is the basement, which has been turned into a unisex bathroom with its own bar, DJ and dance floor. So when you are taking your timeout on the loo you can still enjoy yourself and not miss out on any of the action! Haha I love the sound of this place already. If you would rather chill there is a long thin lounge on the main floor just off the main dance room. So really there is something for EVERYONE!

So you can be sure that I will be checking this place out with all my friends…come join us! Maybe next INTERNeX PuB & CLUB NiGHT location?! Let me know what you think, contact us at the office
