Yacht Club introduces restaurant tenant

The Kelowna Yacht Club, one of Kelowna’s oldest non-profit organizations, is proud to announce that they are teaming with one of the most popular restaurants in B.C.

The Cactus Club Cafe will be opening its newest restaurant on the Kelowna waterfront on the first floor of the new Kelowna Yacht Club building on Water Street.

“We are building the premiere development on Kelowna’s lakefront and were determined to attract an operator for the public restaurant that would equal this unique location,” said Commodore Mike Terris. “We are delighted that Cactus Club Cafe has decided to join us next to Stuart Park on the waterfront. They are a terrific addition to our vibrant downtown.”

The Kelowna Yacht Club’s new 24,100 sq. ft. building, just north of its current clubhouse, consists of two floors. The northern half of the first floor contains the club’s administration offices, meeting space and a classroom for the club’s numerous boating-related courses that are open to the public.

The southern half of the first floor is intended for a public restaurant and that is the space which Cactus Club will occupy.

The top floor features huge covered decks with fabulous views of the lake and will house the members’ restaurant and lounge and a large public banquet facility.

“This is an ideal location for the Cactus Club Cafe,” Terris said, “since it fronts Water Street on the east, the new Stuart Park on the south and the new waterfront promenade currently under construction along the lake.”

He said patrons will be able to sit on the restaurant’s patio and enjoy fine lakeside dining, while taking in the views of the park and the lake.

Cactus Club Cafe began as a small restaurant in North Vancouver and has quickly grown into 25 restaurants across British Columbia and Alberta.

Rich in history and embracing the future, Kelowna Yacht Club is a boating community dedicated to providing educational, social and recreational opportunities to its members and the general public. The club has three types of membership—regular, social and corporate. More information about the club, its activities and membership opportunities can be found at
