Concerts and Art Events in the city



Former home of the original Vancouver Stock Exchange, this historic building has hosted creative minds and distinguished individuals for nearly a century, and has become established as an intersection of culture, hospitality and style in the heart of downtown Vancouver. The original Stock Exchange Building is an iconic structure reflective of rich history and success, having since become one of Vancouver's largest and most exciting heritage restoration projects.

A collaborative architectural masterpiece between Switzerland-based Harry Gugger Studio Architects and Vancouver-based Iredale Architecture, the EXchange Hotel Vancouver is the most fitting symbol of what Vancouver is today. Focused, elegant, progressive and thriving, this is where the past greets the future. It is history re-imagined.
