One Venerable Venue

When the Railway Club opened back in the early 1930s, it was the exclusive hangout of railroad workers punching in over at the nearby CPR Station. Eventually it became a come-one, come-all watering hole, and, by the 1980s, one of Vancouver's premier live-music venues. Acts like k.d. lang and Spirit of the West tasted some of their formative success at the Railway Club, and both local and touring musicians continue to perform regularly here.

Besides the fine tunes, this time-tested tavern's still earning its keep with sturdy drinks and bar fodder--including build-your-own pizzas and burgers. At better than 80 years old, the Railway Club hasn't lost any of its appeal.
