People who call Vancouver a no-fun city are crazy.
Maybe they don’t get out much. Or maybe they’ve never been to House Guest. The supper club opened in Gastown a few weeks ago and last night they held a private party with Alicia Quan, Peter Ty, Rick Chung, Mana Mansour, May Globus, Liv Hung, Kumike Ide, Lisa Wong, Lyndi Barrett, Eryne Ordel, and a million others whose picture I didn’t snap.
If you’ve been to the space, you’ve probably already fallen in love with the décor.
My favourite design elements? The hand-painted wall paper by designer/artist Adam Lupton and the vintage suitcases encased in plexiglass that are used as tables in their downstairs lounge (Maurice Li snapped a great shot of them).
The skull wall’s pretty b-b-b-bad to the bone too. The two dapper gents in front of it, Justin Devlin and Mattie Schmidt, are the men behind unconventional space (they’re also Northill cohorts).
So, all you pretty Vancity-ers, who’s up for chicken and waffles at brunch on Sunday?
