This is very accessible by LRT and it's very nice to be able to have chocolates, wine, beer, etc before a concert. I've always enjoyed this venue. You almost have to wear a to top of the night!

Nothing on at Winspear. Don't despair the Fringe is on from 17 to 27 August. Go to old Strathcona and enjoy. Tickets for all the venues will be available on line.
