Inside Vancouver – Secrets of the Penthouse

Secrets of the Penthouse got a mention in Vancouver’s most visited blog, Inside Vancouver, March 15 2013. We loved the headline “Walk on the Wild Side…with Will Woods!”

In fact Secrets of the Penthouse is one tour that Will doesn’t speak at! On this tour the guides are Danny Filippone – club owner, Aaron Chapman – author of Liquor, Lust and the Law – the history of the legendary Penthouse Nightclub, and Grant MacDonald – retired VPD cop who used to raid the club in the ’60s and ’70s.

Walk on the Wild Side at the Penthouse

It’s an action packed tour that goes inside and outside the club, upstairs, and into the famous “green room” where Sammy Davis Jr. once slept! There’s also the incredible photo collection on the Penthouse’s walls inside that guests can check out – showing the great and the good (and not so good!) that have visited the club over the years. Recent additions have included Hollywood director Tim Burton, actor Christian Slater, and British rock star Sting.
