“Vancouver was a natural selection for our launch into Canada with its beauty, a great mix of locals, a bustling business community and its draw as an amazing tourist destination,” says Michael Gruber, President and Partner at Drai’s Enterprises Inc. “Drai’s Vancouver blends the best of what we do in Las Vegas – top tier music, entertainment, and experience – with the unique and sophisticated qualities of Vancouver to create a social, post work destination where guests are able to relax and unwind with great food, innovative cocktails, and entertainment.”
“Drai’s Vancouver will be an entirely new way to experience the city’s nightlife,” said Victor Drai, Owner of Drai’s Enterprises. “We designed Drai’s Vancouver to be the go-to after work lounge where guests will be immersed in a social atmosphere, modern design, and our legendary hospitality.”
The only place in Vancouver where guests can dance on top of the pool, Drai’s Vancouver features two bars, an indoor pool which transforms into a dance floor, an outdoor hot-tub and lounge. The nearly 8,000 square-feet venue was designed by Francois Frossard of Miami.
“We are thrilled to announce that we will be opening the doors to Drai’s Vancouver,” stated Steve Brooks, General Manager of Drai’s Vancouver,. “As Vancouver’s newest ultra-lounge I am excited Drai’s Vancouver will be a place where an after-work experience can end up with champagne on the dance floor; this is something not offered to this level of sophistication in Vancouver.
The food menu will be designed by Drai’s Las Vegas’ Executive Chef, Josh Bianchi, and executed by the Trump Hotel Vancouver’s Executive Chef, Katsuyuki Sekihata. The menu will be available during operational hours and features dishes designed to be shared, including dressed sashimis, gourmet sliders, pizzas and decadent desserts.
An extensive, fresh cocktail list will feature international classics, “Drai’s Classics” from Las Vegas, a section of mules from around the world as well as seasonal cocktails curated by a resident master mixologist.
