For those that haven’t heard by now, The Flamingo had a fire that started in one of the hotel rooms upstairs. Thanks to a quick response by Surrey Fire and the RCMP, we were able to put the fire out and control the area. Thankfully, no one was hurt.
Unfortunately, this room was directly above our music venue which sustained some water damage. Currently we are in full restoration mode with a team on site and expect for the live venues to be open by Wednesday.
The Hotel on the other hand, has sustained major smoke damage and will require an entire renovation. During this renovation time, all of our live music venues will be open, as will the liquor store. The Flamingo is a resilient old Byrd, and will be rocking again soon.
