Vancouver 2010 Olympics – Irish House

I went to the Olympic Irish House (620 Nelson Street) preview last night, a 9,000 square-foot pavilion house which is open to the public between February 8th to 28th. Located in a makeshift tent beside Doolins Irish Pub, this country pavillion reminds me of a typical beer garden crossed with a sports bar – complete with TV projections, a Nintendo Wii Station and a live band. Drink tickets can be bought for $8 to $9 – a preview of Olympics prices for the next month. There are two separate balconies accessible by stairs, and a sales booth by the entrance selling Celtic patterned jewelry. Click for photos and to continue reading.

Within six months, Noir has appeared in numerous media including The Globe and Mail and the 2009 Juno Awards. “It’s no wonder the city’s turned from lash virgins to full-blown lash addicts!” And now, congratulations once again, as Noir is opening its second location in South Granville – conveniently located next door to Pure Nail Bar and around the corner from Blo Blow Dry Bar. What a great addition to the neighbourhood!
