The Royal Canadian Legion is one of the more popular night spots in Iqaluit.
Two rules that I learnt about are don't take any pictures within the Legion and to get into the Legion you need to be signed in by a local member of the club so it takes a little more creativity but they say it is worth it and the Iqaluit Legion is one of the most successful in the country!
The Store House is a brand new night club located within the Frobisher Inn. It really is a nice spot and there is no smoking in the place which I enjoyed.
There are pool tables, televisions, a great relaxing area with a fire place and lots of security that keep the place civil.
There was actually a line up at this place every night of the week I was in Iqaluit.
I know what you're thinking....'But it's a LEGION!!'....and that's what I said too. But for those who are living in a town without a dance bar, they turned the largest drinking establishment into just that! On Friday and Saturday nights, the Legion is as packed, hopping, and enjoyable as even the most popular city clubs anywhere I've seen! Believe it or not!
As a membership is required for admittance, I recommend the following:
Visitors: call ahead and ask for a visitor's guest pass. As long as there aren't any major events going on in town, they aren't hard to get. Keep in mind that you must arrive before 9pm to use your pass.
New residents: Ask someone to sign you in, and get your own membership as soon as possible. Residents are not eligible for guest passes.
Dress Code: There are no hats allowed.
