LEGENDARY TIPS

There are no cash machines at the Vancouver Curling Club, so plan ahead and bring some with you. Cash helps to keep the bar line moving quickly and enables you to participate in the Lucky LEGENDS raffle prize and 50/50 draws.

Cash is also required for bar purchases at the LEGENDS Sip n’ Slide Soiree.

Pay attention to the marked “2 Hour only” parking zones near Hillcrest Centre entrances. You don’t want to get towed!

On Saturday, during the Winter Market at Nat Bailey, parking is extremely limited. Consider public transit or a taxi to get to the club on Saturday. But be sure to hit up a market food truck for a delicious lunch!

The Vancouver Curling Club does not have secure lockers available for use by visiting teams. A section of the Lower Lounge, monitored by club staff, is reserved for storage of curling bags and brooms while not in use. 

The Last Draw Lounge at the Vancouver Curling Club has a limited food menu. A special lunch feature will be available for purchase on Friday.

The Blue Parrot Cafe located outside the curling club entrance is open during regular facility hours.

On Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, the Nat Bailey Farmer’s Market (located in the parking lot) features a variety of local food trucks.

Two blocks east of the curling club is Main Street where you’ll find a number of quality food establishments.

For registered curlers, the LEGENDS “Poolside” BBQ Lounge features a slider bar catered by The Lazy Gourmet and the LEGENDS Sip ‘n Slide Soiree includes a hearty selection of West Coast canapés and a beef carving station.

Need a break from curling? Across the concourse, the Hillcrest Aquatic Centre is open from 6:00 am to 9:45 pm and features a lane pool, sauna, steam room and 70-person hot tub. Admission is $6.22.
