The Cobalt is a dark nostalgic, funky underground venue -think brick, dark wood beams, chandeliers, candles- hosting a wide verity of events from live music, pinball tournaments to art showings and dance parties with drag queens and sometimes kings. Now sprinkle on the amazing staff and laissez-faire approach and you’ve got the Cobalt.
We are located on the corner of Prior and Main Street in the old Cobalt Motor Hotel. Private parking lot in the back and a 5 min. walk from the Skytrain makes the Cobalt a perfect option for bookings, private parties or just hanging out.
The entrance to the venue is at street level with no lip. There is room for parking a wheelchair/scooter by the pinball machines up front if desired. Seating consists of hi-top tables and bar stools. There are two washrooms with entrances 26″ wide. Of the two washrooms, which are both gender neutral on queer nights, the one marked as “Men’s” is somewhat more accessible with a stall that measures 5′ long by 3′ wide with an inwards swinging door and a wall-mounted sink at least 28″ high.
Venue staff and event promoters will be available to assist with any disability concerns. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org, preferably with at least a few days’ notice before the event. A more detailed accessibility is in the works (actually it really is!), and will be made available as soon as possible.
