RED LIGHT RENDEZVOUS
Take a journey back to a salacious time where liquor, ladies and lust ruled the streets. The Vancouver Police Museum’s exclusive tour, Red Light Rendezvous, takes you on a 90-minute walk through dark dens and hidden alleys where pimps and madams ruled the city with sex, prostitution and corruption. From Dupont Street all the way to Shanghai Alley, the city's sex trade plagued the streets and infiltrated the beds of the wealthiest and most powerful players in town, impacting several neighbourhoods and their surroundings to this very day. Set in the historic areas of Chinatown and Gastown, this tour lifts the veil on scandalous city secrets that were truly hidden beneath the sheets. Tours include free admission to all Vancouver Police Museum exhibits.
