Neighbours of the space include Bestie, El Kartel, The Shop Vancouver, and Duchesse Vintage - all vibrant locally owned shops bringing a diversity of shoppers to the neighbourhood.

The Playground is available for pop-up shops, gallery exhibits, meetings. Please note that this space is no longer accepting event or party requests. Weekend pricing includes Friday-Sunday with a 2-day minimum at $250/day. Read below for specific rules of the space.

Great space, easy to decorate and make look like whatever you want it to be. Would be good to have a locked up place to store personal belongings while there but otherwise it was lovely! Appreciated all the social media interaction and shares by our host and this open space!
