Have done a lot of research on Canada and found them to be on nearly every single list 'Richest Country list', 'Wealthiest country list', 'Safest country list', 'Lowest crime list', 'Best places to start business' 'happiest country list'. Sweden has been on a few of these lists.

It seems to me Canada would be a better pick than Sweden to start a world-class Nightclub and Fitness Gym as it has immense potential and can pull in over 10k nightclubbers on a single night. Sweden is a neutral country and has been for quite a while, Canada is not involved in any current wars.

Now my question compare the good as well as the bad of Canada to Sweden. If I went with Sweden I would start businesses in Stockholm, now if I went with Canada where should I go. Not going with Toronto as it is fast-paced, not going with Montreal either as it is a pre-dominantly French-speaking. So which place in Canada is nicest and best overall taking everything into account?

Stockholm already has world-class nightclubs and gyms. Have you ever heard of Stureplan?

They have bars yes, not exactly nightclubs.

Vancouver has an extremely high property crime rate, no? And organized crime?

How does Vancouver compare with Stockholm. I want to know the good, the bad and the ugly.

What's the difference between a world-class nightclub and a normal one?

You're overly worried about the organized crime. The problems with Vancouver are insane property prices (Stockhom has the same problem by the way), finding an appropriate locale, and competition from other clubs. If you're going to come to Canada, open up a club in Calgary, Alberta. It's a young, recently oil rich, booming city and the nightlife hasn't yet caught up to the fact that it's full of young people from all over the country with a ton of money to spend and few places to go. Move to Vancouver, or Stockholm, and you'll be a small fish in a big pond struggling to make it amongst the established venues. Move to Calgary and you'll make a friggin killing!

Also, it seems very silly to be comparing countries here. You should be comparing cities to each other, they're more relevant, Montreal is not like St. John's which is not like Vancouver which is not like Edmonton. All very different markets.

There is at least half a dozen night clubs on the square itself, not to mention the those who is located in the surrounding blocks.
Plus there is bars, cafés, restaurants, hotels.
The Stureplan area is THE place to be for the rich and famous and all the wannabes.
This is also where the international jet set and celebrities parties when they visit Stockholm.

That's terrific. We have to be talking numbers though, can it pull in over 10k occupants in a single Nightclub?

Stureplan is all about exclusivity, but I don´t think any swedish night club has that capacity.
Not even for the regular deadly people.
