Storm Crow Tavern announces permanent closure after 7 years of operation

Apr 14 2020, 7:03 pm

It’s not the first much-loved Vancouver establishment we’re losing due to the conditions amid COVID-19, and unfortunately, it won’t be the last.

Owners of Commercial Drive’s Storm Crow Tavern announced today that the self-proclaimed nerd bar would not be reopening, regardless of the short-term resolution of the pandemic.

The quirky hangout, known for its games, whacky decor, and good vibes, operated at 1305 Commercial Drive for over seven years.

In a statement posted on the eatery’s social media channels, owners said that their Storm Crow Alehouse location (1619 W Broadway) and their Storm Crow Manor spot in Toronto “are potentially different stories” but did not disclose any additional details surrounding those establishments.

Owners thanked patrons for making the Tavern a special place for the “misfits, the geeks, the oddballs and bohemians of Commercial Drive and Vancouver in general.”

News of the Storm Crow Tavern’s closure comes shortly after two other Commercial Drive staples announced their shuttering, Federico’s Supper Club and Cabrito Tapas.
