Thread Name: Bunkhouse in Vancouver
Subject: RE: Bunkhouse in Vancouver
By 1970 the former Bunkhouse, downstairs at Davie and Seymour, was Vancouver's first drag club, Champaign Charlie's, and a bunch of us old timers are trying to fit together the sequence of events between Les Stork's problems with the police in 1967 and John Stevenson opening Charlie's. There are also some memories of it having been called The Eleventh House for a period of time, but nobody is clear on dates and ownership under that name. So anyone here know when Les opened the Bunkhouse, what the venue had been before that, or anything about the Bunkhouse / Eleventh House / Champagne Charlie's transition?
