Meet Linda Allen
Linda Allen moved from Vancouver to Prince George in 1993. Back then it was a smaller city, but one that was on the move up. After a few years of living in Prince George, Linda had a good pulse on the business community and some insight into Prince George’s culture. What she discovered was that the town needed a bartending school, which opened in 2004, and a gay-friendly entertainment venue. The idea of a gay-friendly establishment was cutting edge when the club first opened in 2011, and it received a great deal of acclaim and support.
Linda operates her bartending school in a separate area located in the night club facility and it has proved to be a mutually-beneficial partnership. Trainees get to learn in a real bar atmosphere and then put what they've learned into practice with real customers. It offers them unique and practical on-the-job training, plus they get to keep their tips.
Throughout her years living here, Linda has watched the city undergo a number of transformations. She has seen new businesses come in as well as the expansion of services like post-secondary education and health care. All of this has had a positive impact on the community overall. Linda is excited to be a part of the growth and what the future holds for her business and for the community in general.
