Coming Up: Return to the Penthouse
By popular demand, Heritage Vancouver goes back to the Penthouse to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Vancouver’s oldest Exotic Night Club. Begin the evening – January 17th – with a behind the scenes tour of this famous club. Hear tales of the early days and visit the Steak Loft Dining Lounge and the VIP room where Joe Filipone entertained high profile guests such as Frank Sinatra.
The tour will be followed by an intriguing presentation by UBC Professor Becki Ross, “The Shake, The Rattle, and the Pole: Vancouver’s Striptease Past” , based on her nearly completed book on postwar burlesque and striptease in Vancouver, 1945-1980, To celebrate the occasion, The Penthouse menu will include a selection of reasonably priced South Asian Cuisine and a special Heritage Vancouver Martini. Plan to make an evening of it enjoy dinner, drinks and a performance.
