it just has a really nice atmosphere and is the go-to venue for most bigger bands that come through so i've probably been there the most for shows and havent had a bad experience and have seen some really, really great shows there

What's wrong with the R'n'R Hotel? From the photos I've seen the design seems pretty cool, at least.

Part of it is that there aren't really any venues i absolutely hate, so this one is just a lesser favorite. the sound isn't that great, and i'm not an enormous fan of the layout. it's really not bad though.

Tons of venues have been opening/closing over the last 2 years, but these are the ones I've been going to as of late in Winnipeg:

1. The Garrick
2. West End Cultural Centre
3. Park Theatre
4. Pyramid
5. Burton Cummings Theatre
6. MTS Centre

The Albert isn't open at the moment, but it seems like everyone in the Canadian punk scene has heard stories about it. A guy I know shot a cool documentary about it a few years ago:

What about the Myth?!?! Lol.

But seriously, Varsity for me, all the way,... then probably Triple Rock, First Ave Main, and I enjoyed the two or three shows I saw in the basement at Coffman Memorial Union at the U. I also have fond memories of the Cabooze because I saw SoCo there outside, and also saw a show indoors there that was actually quite fun, even though I think the venue itself would likely be pretty annoying in most circumstances.

What's so great about the Church? I've never been to a show there. Seems weird to have a venue in the basement of an active church.
