Kelowna Nightlife: From Your Kelowna Hotels to the Dance Floor

December 28, 2013

When you’re ready for a night out to dance or let loose, the nightlife near Kelowna hotels lets you choose from every kind of entertainment—from country bars and karaoke to big clubs and Friday fun.


Country Bars

OK Corral

See if you can still line dance or two-step the night away with your sweetheart at the OK Corral. In addition to a huge dance floor, this Kelowna country bar often hosts live music by country artists as well as pool and darts. Try your hand at bull riding on Thursday nights and enjoy free two-stepping lessons on Fridays.




Recently named the best night club in the central Okanagan by Okanagan Life Magazine, Sapphire provides the complete big city club experience: the hottest DJs, a bumping dance floor, and three different rooms featuring different music. Heading out for a really special event? Treat your friends to the VIP treatment with your own private booth and table service.



Take partying to the next level at Level night club. This Kelowna club is popular for its nightly events, including College Thursdays and Sunday Fun Days, as well as its special events, such as a Movember Gala and a Roaring Twenties theme night.



Dakoda’s Sports Bar and Grill

Karaoke in Kelowna is truly a sport when you participate in Karaoke with Crazy Dan at Dakoda’s Sports Bar and Grill. Every Wednesday night, starting at 8 p.m. Gather up your friends and sing all your favourites with a microphone in hand. 


Friday Night Fun

97 Street Pub

Conveniently located on Highway 97 and next to one of the busiest Kelowna hotels, the 97 Street Pub is hopping with music played by live DJ’s every Friday night. The Pre-Funkin Fridays music begins at 5 p.m., just in time to let your hair down at the end of the work week. And if you’re staying at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites, you won’t even have to worry about getting a ride home because your room is just footsteps away.



Love the music of the eighties? Or the 90’s and 2000’s? Relive your glory days at Old School Fridays at Flashbacks Nite Club. Resident DJ Shado plays all your favourites so you and your friends can sing and dance the night away just like you did in your teens and twenties.  The fun begins at 9 p.m. every Friday.


A Little Bit of Everything

Rose’s Waterfront Pub

Love to dance? Sip wine overlooking the lake? Watch the game with the guys? Listen to live music? Whatever ‘going out’ means to you, you’re going to find it at Roses’s Waterfront Pub. As Kelowna’s only waterfront pub downtown, Rose’s patio is always rocking in the summer. The rest of the year, it’s a hotspot for hosting great live music and the dance floor as well as all the everyday things, from great food and pool tables to big screen TV’s and lotto pub games.
