ST. LOUIS, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Club Bud, host of the hottest parties in Beijing and Torino, will reclaim its place on top of the Olympic Winter Games party podium in Vancouver. Budweiser, the official beer of the U.S. Olympic Team and a supporter of the Olympic Movement since 1984, will be the center of the Olympic Games social scene for five nights in February.

Club Bud will be located on pedestrian-friendly Granville Street in the heart of Vancouver's entertainment district. The 19,000-square foot, 1,000-person capacity, multi-level venue will feature a concert stage, elevated seating, several bar and lounge areas and the legendary 2,646-square foot sprung dance floor. Adult partygoers will enjoy live DJs and three separate bar areas will offer distinct atmospheres to enjoy a cold Budweiser with friends.
