Opus Bar – Van Gogh Live Art Series

Last night was the monthly Van Gogh Live Art Series held at Opus Bar in Yaletown. The unique event concept featured local artist, Michael Solomon, creating art on the spot. On a nearby table was an auction form on which potential buyers could put a bid on the piece of artwork by the end of the night. Guests were also treated to an in-house DJ and complimentary tastings of Van Gogh vodka mixed with hot chocolate topped with whipped cream.

The Van Gogh Live Art Series takes place the first Wednesday of every month at Opus Bar and Hotel in Yaletown.

OPUS Hotel – Rooftop Restaurant Approval Meeting (Nov. 7, 2008)

This past Halloween, I started off my night of barhopping in Yaletown at Elixir and Opus Bar and arguably one of the cornerstone venues most representative of the YUPPIE crowd. Now, Opus Hotel needs our help and support! Opus Hotel has made an application to the City of Vancouver to allow additional height and floor area to accommodate a seasonal 250-seat rooftop restaurant.
.
Their fifth and final approval meeting will be at City Hall (457 West 12th Avenue) this Friday, November 7th from 6pm to 8pm and the owner of Opus Hotel, John Evans, is soliciting your presence, support and positive feedback at the meeting.
