Nestled on East Hastings, neighboring Strathcona, and across from the Hastings Public Sauna is the Astoria Hotel, an old brick heritage building with a whole lot of history. The pub remains one of Vancouver's last live music venues, and is host to a variety of weekly events, special events, and bands. The proletariat space allows local and out-of-town bands a space to create community, to meet old friends and new, to enjoy a pint alongside the existing regulars that have been coming in for years. The drinks are cheap, the staff are the best in the Eastside and the bathrooms work.
