Iconic Vancouver waterhole formerly known as the Railway Club for sale for $ 499,000

The famous Vancouver live music venue once called the Railway Club is for sale again.

The listing has a bid price of $ 499,000.

That Just has covered the much-loved establishment, now known as Jernbanescenen & Ølcafé, over the years.

The club has occupied its 579 Dunsmuir Street location since 1931.

Railway Stage & Beer Café is one of many locations operated by the Donnelly Group.

On its website, the hospitality group describes the downtown club as a “historic lighthouse for the Pacific Northwest music scene.”

The Tragically Hip, kd lang and Sarah McLachlan are a couple of many Canadian artists who have performed at the venue.

The club started as a watering hole after work for railroad workers employed at the CPR station on Seymour Street.

The place was bought by former NDP MLA Bob Williams in 1980.

Williams’ family ran the then Railway Club until 2008, when it was bought by Steve Silman.

Silman put the joint up for sale in 2015.

The place closed in 2016, and reopened the following year.

“The Leased Rescue After then-owner Steve Silverman failed to sell the business, Donnelly Group – owners of local bars such as Lamplighter, Library Square and Tavern – have completed its on-site renovations,” Just reported in 2017.

A listing on Restaurant Business Broker’s website indicates that the company sale comes with a liquor license for 156 seats plus a roof terrace with 40 seats.
