Roxy, The

Roxy, The | Place | For many years, The Roxy on Granville St. has really taken the cake as Vancouver’s tequila-shooting meat market of incomparable douchebaggery. The street outside is where out of town hockey players go to get in “unprovoked altercations” and where people can kick homeless people in the groin. Unsurprisingly, it’s widely considered to be the epicentre of the Granville Shitshow.

Usage: “I got roofied at The Roxy, or is that roxied at the Roofy?”
