About The Vancouver Club
Established in 1889, The Vancouver Club has deep roots in this young, vibrant city. The Club is a place to dine, play, relax and connect with other professionals who are shaping the very fabric and creative energy of the West Coast.
Led with expert passion by executive chef Sean Cousins, the kitchen emphasizes award winning regional cuisine that interprets tradition through modern techniques. Ingredients are sourced from incomparable local suppliers: Fraser Valley duck breast, Haida Gwaii halibut and Okanagan goat cheese mingle with bio-dynamic hen eggs and Salt Spring Island lamb. The Rooftop Garden boasts seasonal plantings, edible flowers, hard-to-source-herbs and four types of savouries that make their way from soil to plate.
The Club is one of the largest wine buyers in B.C., passing this influence on to members through volume, service and exclusive prices unmatched by local retailers. Whether it’s a case of full-bodied Malbec or a taste of the 16-year-old special Club bottled scotch, the $2 million-dollar wine cellar can satisfy every palate.
In the culinary heart of The Vancouver Club, the bright, airy Atrium is ideal for a sunny lunch, while the moodier main Grill seduces with warmth and modern style. Bar III is an inviting place for poker, cocktails and conversation. It’s tough to imagine a more stylish hideout, tucked in the heart of this busy city.
Members and guests are people from industries of every stripe, from diverse local companies and young creative organizations, to global ventures and multinational NGOs. The atmosphere inside The Club’s 100 year old walls is welcoming, diverse and approachable.
Now in its third century, The Vancouver Club remains rooted in the foundations of the city. It’s a place where global business meets rich local culture and tradition blends seamlessly with innovation. For members and their guests, The Club is a storied hideaway amid a lively urban setting.
