The Storm Crow Alehouse announced on their website they will be closing down this month, citing “Brutal” impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic related problems especially on the service industry.

This geeky bar in Vancouver – for 10 years known for its cocktails, board games and extensive decorative memorabilia. On their website they listed reasons for shutting down was due to COVID-19 restrictions with lockdowns, supply chain disruptions and staffing shortages and “OMICRON”.

“This isn’t the letter we wanted to write to ring in the new year.” The letter begins.

“With great sorrow we must announce that the Storm Crow Alehouse will close its doors permanently in January.”

There was another location on Commercial Drive that also operated for 10 years and shit down in September 2020, but a third, Storm Crow Manor, remains open in Toronto.

Storm Crow says they will remain ipen for a few days this more so people can visit one last time.

The owners are also putting some of the Storm Crow memorabilia up for sale with proceeds going to staff.

Some of the items listed online include a Numenorian shield prop from Lord of the Rings, the Hound’s helmet from Game of Thrones, and a Klingon Bat’leth set from Star Trek.

“Thank you, Vancouver, for an awesome decade, and thank you to all Crow employees past and present,” Storm Crow’s farewell message says.
