Studio Information

The VABD Studio is conveniently located on Howe Street between Granville and Hornby and  Davie and Nelson Streets, at the Rhodes Wellness College, on the second floor of an upbeat, contemporary high-rise.  The Studio features its own entrance on Helmcken, right before the alley, on the north side of the building, under the blue and yellow Rhodes Wellness College sign.  There is a buzzer to gain entrance just  to the right of the door ~ you can’t miss it! ~ and an elevator straight ahead that will take you to the second floor.

The VABD Studio is air conditioned with 4 washrooms ~ 2 women’s and 2 men’s.


The VABD Studio is less than a 10 minute walk from both the Burrard and Granville skytrain stations. Directly in front of the building are local and suburban bus stops.


As well as plenty of street parking, the closest parking lot is right across the street at the Holiday Inn, on the southwest corner of Howe and Helmcken; parking is $2/hour in this gated parking lot.

Advanced Parking has the next closest lot that is reasonably priced at $5 and is a quarter block down a lit alley between Howe and Granville and Nelson and Smith.  It is open until 9PM Mon/Wed/Thurs and until 1 AM Tues/Fri/Sat/Sun.

Robson Court Parking is right on Smithe Street between Howe and Granville, 2 blocks east of  Helmcken and 1/2 block south of  Howe, costs $5,  is open until 1:00 AM and closed on holidays but then so are we!

We’ll keep our antennae out for more reasonable, safe and close parking and please let us know if you have a parking “find”.

Parking is available outside by parking meter or pay parking across the street at the Holiday Inn. Located on the Southwest Corner of Howe St. and Helmcken St.


To improve the safety and comfort of people using the facilities on evenings and weekends, access to the building is restricted outside of regular business hours.  Access to the facility is through an intercom located to the right of the door at the Rhodes Wellness College entrance on Helmcken Street under the blue and yellow Rhodes Wellness College awning.
