Contest for new name of pub on former Mirage nightclub site in Surrey

GUILDFORD — Operators of the former Mirage nightclub are staging a contest to name their new pub on the site, and the deadline is this Sunday (Aug. 31).

The Mirage was closed in June after 18 years of late-night parties.

The building has been gutted and is being rebuilt as a modern, upscale pub, site owner and operator Wayne Ferguson told the Now in July (read full story here).

Ferguson is looking to get local residents to help come up with a title, saying he wants to differentiate from Mirage’s late-night club image.

“When we came up with the Mirage, we wanted something that would depict something with a certain aura of class to it but also it suited us because we were building something that basically belonged in downtown Vancouver that was built out in the valley," he said. "That was kind of like a mirage because it didn’t really belong. So the word ‘mirage’ resonated with us really well.”

The new pub will feature live bands, DJs and dancing, along with 37 TVs and big screens.

The winner of the name-the-pub contest will win $500 cash, and every entry will be entered for a chance to win a $100 VIP package including dinner for two in the new pub.

Email contest entries to pubcontestnow@gmail.com. Remember, the deadline to enter is this Sunday, Aug. 31.
