“This is where you connect to a powerful, influential & inspired network. This is where Vancouver & other world cities unite.”
Kylie Burton, Founder.
A private club devoid of rules and tradition. Sora brings together a new generation of thought leaders, discerning entrepreneurs, creative artists and social connoisseurs, with beautiful workspaces, high-profile events & hospitality.
It is time for a place that feels unmistakably of the moment and reflective of the world today. It's time for a place that feels authentic but exclusive. A place that sets a new benchmark for the way we work and play, the way we eat and drink, the way we entertain and relax.
Shared business amenities, office space, and personalized concierge services come together with unexpected social and gastronomical spaces to create an environment for frequent, chance encounters and a highly curated eco-system for creativity, thought leadership and content-producing collaborations that transcend industry and geography.
Sora stands out for its vibrant interiors, inviting atmosphere, cutting-edge cultural programming and best-in-class hospitality, food and beverage.
