Coastal Social Club

In a world moving ever faster behind computer and cellphone screens, the human touch to social interactions is becoming a lost art. We are here to make a change.

As organizers, we have found that events in Vancouver are seldom human-driven, focusing instead on flamboyance. Furthermore, it seems odd that Vancouver, as one of the most beautiful places in the world, is notorious for driving most of its social events indoors.

The Coastal Social Club organizes several invite-only, intimate, and outdoor social gatherings for individuals who believe in the power of human connection and shared values. We are driven by the warmth of loyal friendship and genuine interactions.

Attendees are interviewed and carefully vetted based on shared values, united ideals, and warmth of character. Our goal is to create a community of like-minded individuals who believe in conservation, betterment of mankind, and love of country.

Next Event – Late April, 2021


Wild Boar Bacon Stir-Fry

Freshly hand-picked garden-grown Kale, organic Enoki Mushrooms, and Ethically-hunted Wild Boar Bacon stir-fried over charcoal fire, paired with seasonal British Columbian Sparkling Wine.

Hickory Smoked Prime Rib

An exquisite cut of Albertan Angus steak lightly smoked over hickory fire, served with a side of Italian Olive and Cheese bread, paired with British Columbian Shiraz.

Assorted Cheese Platter

A platter of exotic and rare French cheeses, fruits, and roasted nuts, paired with Ontarian Ice Wine.

All of our gatherings are hosted outdoors rain or shine during the warmer months of the year. We gather in outdoor locations that are quiet and permit bonfires, where we roast, drink, and chat.
