HISTORY

858 Yates Street was originally built in 1920 as a garage by H.A. Davie.  H.A. Davie operated a garage here until the 1930’s, when the building use was changed to retail stores. It was used by the Lum Tan & Co. grocery in the late 1930’s. In the 1940’s it became the Vogue Furniture House, which used the building until the late 1950’s. In the 1960’s the main floor was converted to a billiard parlour and pool hall and operated under names like Suzy-Q Billiards and Deluxe Billiards. The second floor was converted into a nightclub in the 1970’s.   The venue was operated under various names throughout it's history; New York, New York, 94th Street, Wastelands and Sugar.
