Granville Street is cleaning up its act – and a large part of that is due to a few good people from the North Shore. The Edge Social Grille & Lounge (1100 Granville) is attached to the Chateau Granville Hotel and is one of the new shining stars on the see-and-be-seen, scene. Owned by experienced hotelier and West Vancouverite Amir Virani, last week the new crew celebrated with a opening night party that included media and VIP guests. The inside is sexy sleek and, with room for both parties and dining, the atmosphere is classy and cool. Keep your eyes on this up-and-comer and the fabulous folks who help make it all happen.
