Railway Club, the, Vancouver
This is one of the older establishments in the city, famous for its live music. Many locals bands get their start at the Railway Club - a venue that might hold as much as 200 on a good night. The venue's definitely cozy - kind of reminds me of a 1970's basement or a friendly pub. The reason for that is because that's exactly what it is - a tiny little pub with a warm & friendly atmosphere. For trivial purposes, bands like The Barenaked Ladies played at the Railway Club very early in their career.
Dress Code: Casual - this is a pub, not a club
One of the nicest pubs in Vancouver. It has live music almost every night, but if you don't care about the music you can head into the back room where all the real action is. The drinks are reasonably priced but there is often cover at the door. A one year membership, which only costs $10, gives you discounts at the door, a few free passes and a cool gold membership card.
While many of the bars in the area close at 1, this beauty stays open until 2.
The croud is a mix of hipster drunkards, students and 50-somethings that have been coming here for years.
Dress Code: Anything goes
