Northwest Dance Venues

The Coconut Grove
Grandview Highway
Burnaby, British Columbia

Some of the bands that performed at this place during those great years of NW music were:

The Flame Dinner Club and the Coconut Grove were both located on Grandview Highway (now Canada Way) in Burnaby.  I grew up in the area during the fifties and sixties and they were quite popular venues.  At the time they were the only option between downtown Vancouver and New Westminster.

My older sister used to be friends with the daughter of the Grove owners and we used to go there during the day to hang out when they were cleaning the place. It was pretty cool.

In later years I went to both clubs many times as an adult.
