  • Scarlet Harlots 2022 – Photo Gallery

    We’ve been saying for quite some time now, treat every event at our host venue The Imperial as if it could be the last, triply so since once the venue closes, it may be some time before we see another venue rise in the city anywhere close to as perfectly suited for fetish events. The lack of venues in Vancouver is a dire situation and getting worse as venues continue to close and not be replaced – there are very few options to start with, let alone venues available to be booked on a Saturday, and even less which are accessible to be booked for fetish events – and now almost NONE in the 500+ capacity range!

    We didn’t know it at the time, but the Scarlet Harlots party on Sept 17, 2022 ended up being the last party ever at The Imperial, as they made the unexpected announcement in mid-October that they would be closing permanently, effective immediately. For those who don’t know, the entire block has been shuttered for some time, in preparation for a major redevelopment, with The Imperial being the last business open. You can read more about the development plans for the area here.

    It was known that we only a limited amount of months left for events with the venue, but the abrupt closing came much earlier than expected, and caught everyone off guard!

    A HUGE thank you to everyone who came out to the Sin City Scarlet Harlots party, for our last event ever at the Imperial!

    This was a crazy busy night in the city overall with multiple events going on, with many of our regular staff helping out other events that night!

    Huge thanks to Captive Photography for coming in at the last second to host the photo booth!

  • IMPERIAL CLOSED, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY!


    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT — We have received a notice from Imperial Vancouver, our home venue for many of our upcoming Restricted Entertainment events, that they have made the decision to close indefinitely, effective immediately, and that they will be unable to honour or host all upcoming bookings.

    All ticket sales to all our upcoming events are currently paused and on hold while we search for replacement venues. In the event of new venues being secured, tickets will re-activate.
    Venues are extremely scarce and some events may unfortunately wind up being cancelled as a result of the Imperial’s decision, which is a huge disappointment to everyone to say the least.
    We have been informed by AdmitOne, the Imperial’s ticketing company, that in the event of any cancellations, all previously purchased tickets will be fully refunded automatically. You will not need to write in and request your refund.

    In the event a replacement venue is found, all previously purchased tickets will be automatically transferred over and valid for the new event.
    If you previously bought a ticket to an event, and the new venue or rescheduled date doesn’t work for you, you can absolutely get your ticket refunded.

    Send in refund requests by email to :

    ticketing@admitone.com



    PURR on Saturday October 15 has been moved to the Waldorf.

    Ticket sales have been exceptionally strong for this event and the capacity at the Waldorf is lower than the Imperial, so while we will be able to fit in all existing ticket holders, we may already have hit SOLD OUT status for PURR due to the venue change. We are very excited to release more details about this shortly in a separate announcement!



    PASSION PORTAL, SIN CITY and COFFIN CLUB events on the Halloween weekend are all on hold with ticket sales paused while we attempt to secure replacement venues. This is a very big challenge as we are only a month out from the first Halloween back since venues have fully re-opened, and almost all venues are sure to be already booked.

    If you hear of a 300-500+ capacity venue available October 28/29, please email :

    isaacterpstra@gmail.com

    Please only let us know of any options you may know of that are confirmed as available on those dates, or which are available to be booked for larger scale events.


    PUBLIC STATEMENT, REGARDING THE HOMELESS ENCAMPMENT :

    MRG, the parent company which operates the Imperial, has cited safety concerns to staff and patrons due to the homeless encampment on the street outside the venue, and incidents of violence in the immediate area, as the reason for their decision to close. They must operate their business on a daily basis and this is their prerogative – all businesses should keep the safety of their patrons in mind, and no employees should be expected to work in unsafe conditions.

    However we must go on record and say that this is not the opinion of us at Restricted Entertainment. We have long had our events in the Gastown and Downtown Eastside area, with nightclub venues overlapping with the local residents. It being a low income area, with a high prevalence of homeless people and open drug use on the street level, is nothing new. This can be visually alarming, and while there have been incidents, assaults and friction in the area, this is also nothing new. Long time attendees of our events may remember a tent encampment outside Club 23 West many years ago which similarly stretched on for a considerable period of time. The Rickshaw has dealt with all these same issues the entirety of their operation, and are busier than ever.

    As we head into colder weather, we sincerely hope that all the people who are living on street level in the city are able to find housing which provides greater physical and mental shelter and support, and we strongly urge the city to help facilitate this in all ways possible.

    Businesses closing down, the city losing even more of it’s already scarce event venues, and people living on the street are all unacceptable. While the social problems resulting in these situations are understandably long-running and complex, they cannot be ignored and should be made an immediate priority.

    In terms of feeling unsafe, we feel that the situation on Granville Street every weekend outside the more mainstream venues frankly makes many of the patrons of our alternative, fetish and LGTBQ+ community even more uncomfortable and feeling threatened.

    These communities have long found homes in venues off the beaten path for exactly this reason, and have always been supportive of attending venues in less affluent neighbourhoods. This exact situation typically results in venues supporting more alternative and emerging forms of art & culture rising up in rougher areas of town.

    We would like to extend a personal thank you to the thousands of people who have supported and attended Restricted Entertainment events over the last 20+ years. Just showing up to the events and walking through the door directly contributes to the continuation and growth of underground culture in Vancouver.

    Sincerely

    Isaac Terpstra

  • 20 Years Of Lust & Love!

    Sin City ~ 20 Years Of Lust & Love from Restricted Entertainment on Vimeo.

    THANK YOU to everyone who has been coming out to Sin City Fetish Night, either as a newer or first time attendee in our kinky party community, or as a long term regular since we started way back in May of 2001! We’ve been going strong ever since with events 1-2 monthly, going to online gatherings during the global pandemic shutdown of 2020/2021, and now back just as strong as ever. There was a very narrow window of opportunity but we were still able to pull together all the strings necessary to be able to gather in person to celebrate our 20 Year Anniversary in November of 2021. The bonds which tie the kink community together are STRONG and when we put our minds to it and come together, nothing can stop us!

    A particularly extra huge thank you to everyone who has signed up to our Newsletter and stayed connected to us that way! Social media is increasingly reliable and notoriously ANTI-kink and has many strikes against it when it comes to supporting creative and healthy sexual self-expression. Now more than ever it is important to make sure you are set up for DIRECT connection with your favourite artists, communities and event organizers, WITHOUT relying on social media!

    Join us at the links below and we look forward to welcoming you at one of the upcoming gatherings!

    Newsletter Sign-Up –> HERE

    Sin City is proudly presented by Restricted Entertainment, Vancouver’s servant to the alternative, kink, cult and counter-culture communities for over two and a half decades!
