You’d think running a sushi restaurant in Canada’s sushi mecca would be quite the challenge. But since it opened in 1998, Clubhouse Sushi, located just South of Vancouver’s Olympic Village, has managed to thrive through a recession, a mass condo development and the Olympic Games themselves. Its secret? A mix of traditional and offbeat Japanese dishes and a friendly, neighbourhood vibe.

Despite the changes that have taken place in the area, and the competition from many other sushi restaurants around the city, today, the Clubhouse is as busy as ever. The cozy room, with its kitsch décor and colourful murals still has the same ‘70s rec room vibe it did when it first opened. Large booths, strategically placed along the perimeter and in the center of the restaurant accommodate the many large parties who come for birthday celebrations and sports teams who pop in after games and practices. And a large photo collage pays homage to the many special moments the restaurant has helped customers celebrate over the years.

Eclectic Japanese Restaurant on W. 2nd Ave.

Hidden Japanese Treasure The Club House Japanese Restaurant is a perfect example of why patrons should not judge a restaurant by its exterior. Located on West 2nd Avenue it is easy to miss the tiny restaurant whose faded awning and hidden front door make it hard to tell if it is open or closed. But if you make the effort to stop in, you won’t be disappointed with this eclectic establishment and its interesting assortment of Japanese dishes. Ambience Encourages Adventure The décor is anything but what you would expect from a Japanese restaurant. With its brocade benches, and columned booths in the centre of the room, murals painted on the walls, stained glass windows, and clouds painted on the ceiling the atmosphere seems to encourage adventure and trying new things. And this is good since there are plenty of new things on the menu to try. Old Standards and New Favourites All the old standards can be found on the lunch and dinner menus: sushi, sashimi, and rolls, as well as teriyaki and a variety of noodle dishes. But it is the unique signature dishes that locals and regulars have been coming back for since 1999. Cream cheese rolls and the deep-fried Holy Rolls served with a secret spicy dipping sauce are particularly popular. The spicy egg plant and house specialty, Okonomiyaki, layers of yaki soba noodles, vegetables, meet and sauce served on a sizzling hot platter, are also popular among regulars. The Club House Japanese Restaurant is fully licensed. Reservations are recommended so you are sure to enjoy your evening of sushi and sake.
