Yale Hotel

view location

This is one of Vancouver's oldest surviving buildings. Completed in 1889, the Yale served as the main source of nightlife for the blue collar workers in Yaletown at the turn of the century. Although it was a long way from downtown Vancouver when it was built, the new streetcar line connected it to Cordova Street and the CP train terminal. Over the years it became famous as a blues venue, and currently has a western theme.
