The Cave

The Cave | Place | Part of a chain of supper clubs opened across western Canada in the ’30s, The Cave at 626 Hornby Street gained notoriety as the first night club in Vancouver to receive a liquor licence. Prior to this event in 1954, the puritanical zeal that still permeates Vancouver’s “culture of no” forbade the sinful combination of drinking and entertainment. The Cave closed in 1981.
