The 10th Annual Opus Bar Street Party kicked things into high gear recently as Vancouver’s hipsters, and a few from the North Shore, hit the see-and-be-seen circuit to shake things up in the sun. Venice Beach Heat was the theme as the hotel closed down the streets outside to hold the mega party crowd. Sponsored by Caya, the event included cocktails and live performances. The big ending was a chic fashion show and the chance to socialize with the Real Housewives of Vancouver.
