I was over on the north shore today and while I was driving back downtown I went past the old Drake. It was about half way torn down and won't be long until it is completely gone.
From my understanding the religious folks from Utah bought the place a couple years back and shut it down.....now they are tearing it down.
From my understanding they bought the old Marble Arch as well.....it is still standing but not providing any more 'entertainment'.
The Cecil was torn down in the fall and is currently under construction for condo's.
Very few 'show lounges' left in the GVRD..........
