      After a decade perched between the Granville Entertaiment District and West End nightlife, a downtown hip-hop lounge has closed its doors with plans to move on to bigger and better things.

      The final night for Lickerish resto-lounge at 903 Davie Street (at Hornby Street), which featured live DJs and hip-hop and R&B music videos in a two-level space, was on New Year’s Eve.

      A message on the establishment’s website states that they are searching for a larger venue than their spot straddling the West End and Yaletown neighbourhoods.

      The menu spanned shared plates, flatbreads, burgers and sandwiches, salads, and desserts, alongside a list of martinis and cocktails with names such as LLychee Cool J, H to the Izzo, and Thug Life.

      Selections ran the gamut from Thai chicken skewers, mashed potato spring rolls, and ebi mayo to taco flatbread, chicken and waffles, and deep-fried Mars bars.

      The closure follows other changes to nightlife in the area, including the closures of Davie Village nightclub XY and LGBT bar 1181 on December 31.
