      THE place to be in Vancouver! The music is unrivaled, the atmosphere is electric and the bartenders are stunning. Will definitely be stopping in again next time I'm in town.

      Land of 1000 hairdressers...would be the clientele here if there were customers in the first place. Went last Friday with friends...twice. Dead early in the evening, assumed so, left, came back and not much better. On a Friday night people! Nice enough bartenders when they weren't kissing ass. Couple of past it drag queens showed up and ordered...water. Maybe 10 people in the place...On A Friday Night! Don't bother.

      Overpriced and cliquey. Everyone huddles in small groups and never speaks to anyone outside the circle but then again, this is Vancouver.

      Favourite place while visiting Vancouver. Simple design dark bar with great vibe, great music, good drink menu and sexy bar staff. With my tast Coming from Europe, it s definitely my favourite bar in that street.

      This place has great (house) music, hot bartenders, a clean atmosphere and is pretty awesome. Wish the layout was a bit different since it can get super crowded but totally worth going to. The best gay lounge (not a nightclub) in town.

      Love 1181!
      No complaints really. Small and classy so maybe one shouldn't dress too casual. A great place to come for a drink before heading out to one of the clubs or you could be bold and dance!

      Temporarily closed until Nov 2010
      A heavy downpour flooded 1181 in late September and has caused it to close until November (according to the sign on its door). It's a great place and when it re-opens you should check it out. More of a Stand and Model crowd, but friendly. And very friendly servers.

      Great place
      Went there on Saturday March 6, 2010. Beautiful place and very freindly crowd. Mixed ages and types of guys. Prices were average. Overall, next time im in vancouver, i will go back again for sure!

      Not all that
      The drinks are really expensive, I guess because there is no cover. However at $9 for a double, one would expect to be able to taste the alcohol. The music is just blaring on the weekends and the sound system isn't all that. The DJs are uninspired and there is an air of preteniousness amongst the staff and the regulars. Guess I'll just give it a miss in the future. They also let way too many people in and getting past the long bar or even getting a drink becomes a major task!

      Date night!
      This is a great place to start off a date with a nice drink, the lounge is comforty and a perfect place to either people watch or hide in the back where its more private.
