The Vancouver Nightlife Awards premiered in 2004 and evolved to become the Golden Owl Awards in 2016. Each year, this highly anticipated awards show brings together owners, managers and staff to celebrate the best in Vancouver’s hospitality industry.

With year fourteen on the horizon, The Golden Owl team anticipates their biggest show to date, expecting upwards of 1,100 in attendance. This year’s show will be hosted at Harbour Convention Centre (formerly Edgewater Casino) on Monday, November 19th. Limited tickets are available online through the official website.

In addition to the live ceremony, the night will feature a red carpet upon entry, local art installations, live dancers and a complimentary beer tasting from local breweries.

Original category favourites include Social Event of the Year, Best New Destination and Best Cocktail Experience. Fresh for 2018, we’ve introduced new categories including Breakout Artist of the Year and Best Brunch Experience. Be sure to cast your votes before the polls close on November 10th at midnight.

Don’t worry, the night doesn’t end with the ceremony (it’s an industry celebration after all) – the official After Party will take place at the Imperial (319 Main), hosted by Red Bull.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 Golden Owl Awards.
