VANCOUVER LEXICON | Dorf

Dorf | Nickname | Dorf is short for The Waldorf, a hotel, restaurant and venue known for its Tiki Bar, one of the oldest in North America. Before it was sold to condo developer Solterra in 2013, it had enjoyed a renaissance thanks to a group of promoters now called Arrival Agency. Although it is still standing, the venue's brief moment in the sun has faded hard. Usage: "The Dorf is dead, long live the Dorf!"
