Numbers Cabaret

98% love it
Vancouver's oldest gay club & bar

Considering it is the longest-running venue for cuties to come shake it in Vancouver, Numbers Cabaret is colorful, lively, and deliciously modern. As you saunter up the rainbow carpeted entrance, flanked by free-flowing rainbow flags, you will be greeted by friendly and accommodating staff members. They are there not only to ensure you have the most magical night possible but also to make sure you feel free & safe to be yourself. This multi-level club has enough space & enticing events that every patron of the LGBTQ+ community will feel represented and supported! Come enjoy a sultry cocktail and some appetizers before sliding onto that dance floor. Or perhaps you are more in the mood to lounge and play some pool while chatting with newly made friends! Whatever your plan for the night may be, you will not be disappointed by the time you spend at this local hotspot.

      Same look for years now.
      This place needs a renovation with emphasis on a bigger dance area and air conditioning. Apart from the issues this place has, it is still one of my favorites when I come down with cabin fever. Met some real sweathearts here and the staff is always friendly. I go early to beat the crowd - to dance. Usually gone by 1am from overcrowding. Nice to see they finally took most the tables off the floor, turned down the lights and cranked the bass.

      Fun games
      This club is HUGE!! They also have a lot of game-show games which give the club a pretty fun energy. Of course, having drunk friends who enter the best ass contest really helps.

      Old fashioned, unpretentious fun
      Not one for the see & be seen crowd, Numbers is more about service & atmosphere with a good mix of patrons. Just one, big, friendly community bar, really.

      This place is not half bad. It could use a renovation and better (brighter) lighting, which would make it feel less 'creepy' (some people complain of a creepy atmosphere). The cover charge is silly but the music is fairly good (I prefer house but top 40 is okay sometimes). The crowd is older with a lot of bears. Not usually many hotties but is totally fun once in a while. I wish this place would be more like Woody's in Toronto (no cover, nightly best chest/leg/butt contests, and better lighting, cleaner, and more modern interior.) Overall, fun once in a while.

      Great for the older guys!
      I actually went there last night for the first time! It was pretty fun! Played music I like (Top 40). There was like a pool area if that's not your thing. The crowd was mostly men but there were a few lesbians there. A few straight couples but they were not annoying or bothersome like at Celebs. There are mostly older guys here but there are some young guys here too! Kind of sleazy if you're into that. But all in all a good time!

      Interesting Layout for older crowd!
      Numbers is an interesting place,,the layout is great,,,the prices were average and the eye candy was nice for older guys which I'm one of! The music could be more up-beat. but it was fine. I love that they can cater to the various 'clubs'-and enjoyed seeing that they hosted the leather men's event! Was a nice selection of gear for leather guys...and I'd say....I was passing out from thier outfits! Phil was in the discussions....why I don't know,,,to each his own when operating a business-IT Was Neat N Clean-not run down! Too Bad I dont live in the Okanagan anymore,,,as I'd go there monthy if I could!

      Great club for the over 30 crowd.
      This is a fun multi-level bar & dance club that caters to a more mixed age crowd. While Celebrities & Odyssey are chiefly for 20-somethings, this is a club where 30 & 40 somethings will feel more comfortable. It is also not loaded with girls like the other gay Vancouver clubs seem to be.

      a mess but still fun!
      great staff & the music wasn't bad at all! The bar itself is pretty dated & the dance floor is TINY but was a lot of fun just the same :)

      Phil please retire and sell the place already!
      This bar is exactly the same as it was when it first opened 28 years ago. It was fixed up a few years ago to look exactly the same. They are too cheap to hire decent DJs with taste so every Friday and Saturday night its the same third rate DJ that has no taste in music playing the same crap; year after year. Its worth paying the slightly higher cover charge at The Odyssey or Celebrities or The Majestic; at least there are some attractive gay guys at these places. Bad music is guaranteed. The owner doesn't want to spend any cash so why not sell and let someone else breathe some new life into it?; its a great layout and a waste when there are so few places to go in Vancouver. The previous review was obviously written by one of the staff.

      Some bars in Vancouver claim to be gay bars, but they are not really and this puts some gay guys off. Numbers is not like that. Its been around for 28 years. The lights and sound are great and if you don't like the main levels you can go upstairs. Various events throughout the week with Karoke on Sunday and Wednesday, with amateur strip, Latino night, best butt and rock night on alternating Mondays. Nice mixed crowd, no attitute, nice staff.

      Retro bar with eclectic theme nights.
      It's all in the theme here. Amateur strip night is so hit and miss. This place is always voted "best place to pick up a man". No more needs to be said - except that there are pool tables and you can drink while you play (a rarity in vancity for some reason). The decor is straight outta 1972, but that is so unusual for vancouver that it seems kinda cool. Latino night once a month is the best.
