Originally constructed in 1888, the Roundhouse was comprised of a cluster of buildings used to house and service the great steam locomotives of the day. Today the glass pavilion on the north side of the building continues to serve Canada’s rail history as the home to Engine 374 – the first passenger train to enter Vancouver in 1887. Long admired for its straight forward industrial beauty, the Roundhouse is a building of major historical significance to the City of Vancouver both from an architectural and a social perspective.
The Roundhouse is a unique combination of arts centre, recreation facility, and historic landmark. From rooms for small meetings to a multipurpose gym to a black-box theatre to the newly renovated Turntable Plaza, the Roundhouse offers space for a multitude of activities. Rentals include everything from weddings to international gallery exhibitions to arts festivals. Whether your needs are for a few people or a few hundred, there will be a space that meets your needs.
