The Slocan brings live music to East Village
Speaking of theMain on Main, owner Tasoe Tsiandoulas is importing the restaurant-venue format to the Hastings Sunrise district (or the “East Village”, if you like, and we don’t). Starting this week, the Slocan (2715 East Hastings Street) starts presenting live music every Thursday to Saturday, to go with the newly renovated wooden bar and draft-beer menu. There is no cover.
“I want it to be a sister restaurant to the Main,” Tsiandoulas told the Straight. “The neighbourhood really took to the Main’s program and we wanna bring the same thing down to that part of town, which really lacks any kind of live entertainment.”
Among this weekend’s inaugural treats is the Lonesome Truth, featuring guitar great Jimmy Roy, on Friday (July 6).
