The Beachcomber was a Canadian chain of elaborate Polynesian restaurants in the same vein as other popular chains like Kon-Tiki, Don the Beachcomber and Trader Vic's. Aside from this Vancouver location, there were also locations in Calgary, Edmonton, Victoria, Regina and Winnipeg. This location opened in 1960, and was briefly closed in December 1961 after a fire. The restaurant was also called The Hawaiian Village during part of its time of operation. It eventually closed in 1981.
