VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – It’s the Academy Awards for Vancouver’s night clubs, but instead of Best Actor, it’s Best Doorman and instead of Best Director it’s Best Server.

Voting for the 2012 Vancouver Nightlife Awards closes May 31. There are 20 categories in all that you can vote it.

Stimulant J is a DJ for LCU Nightlife. He says these awards are pretty significant because it’s the only awards show of its kind in Vancouver.

LCU is up for Best Urban Night and Best Urban Promoter.

“We have a good clientele of people and repeat customers that have been around for good reasons, because they like that intimate setting,” notes Stimulant J. “It’s a safe environment, it’s a fun environment and that’s what people want when they go out.”

He adds it can get a little competitive.

“Of course we’re all friends at the end of the day, but it’s more for bragging rights to see who’s going to be on top.”

The winners will be honoured at a gala at the Commodore Ballroom on June 11.
