If you're a bit of a picky music snob, you know full well that going out with your squad can either be hella lit...or a complete bust depending on whether you liked the music or not. Okay, and yeah, the crowd too.
But we're going to take care of the crowd and the music for you. Whether you're into Future or Spice Girls, Carrie Underwood or Red Hot Chilli Peppers, there's a bar for you.
Now you just have to decide where to go! Here are 11 Vancouver bars to turn up based on the music that you like to drink to.
Caprice // 967 Granville St.
If you've got Drake's "More Life" on replay right now, Caprice is where you're gonna wanna turn up at. Always spinning the newest hip hop and rap drops, you can be sure that the crowd will know how to respond if you were you say "rain drop".
Republic // 958 Granville St.
And if you still can't stop singing Passionfruit, it's probably also a good idea to hit up Republic. They also have some of the most friendly and entertaining bar staff.
The Roxy Cabaret // 932 Granville St.
Got cowboy boots that were made for dancing on bars in your closet? Take them out on Sunday nights at The Roxy with authentic Western and Country music. The demographic's a bit of a mixed bag, but you're sure to 100% have a good time.
The Bourbon // 50 W Cordova St.
The only bar in Vancouver with a mechanical bull, indoor bocce, and an eclectic cowboy theme without the cowboy music. The Bourbon is a super fun place to be on Thursday night with karaoke and lots of Spanish music to shake like Shakira to.
Portside Pub // 7 Alexander St.
Get down at Portside Pub with all your radio favourites in a cool nautical-esque bar.
The Bimini // 2010 W 4th Ave.
If you ever went to or are currently a UBC student, Bims is pretty much your home. Playing well-loved and well-known Top 40s music, they'll get even your shy friend drunk and busting out them pipes.
Celebrities // 1022 Davie St.
Tuesdays at Celebs is where it's at, with cheap drinks and party bangers that'll keep you going all night. And if you're a student, cover is only $5.
The Cobalt // 917 Main St.
Don't let the dark and dingy building scare you off, but if you're a true punk rocker, it won't anyway. The Cobalt is the spot for quality live punk rock and metal music. The crowd is always fantastic, AND you can even bring in pizza from next door's Pizza Farina.
