The Storm Cellar Pub: A Travellers' haven

Come One and Come All, In The End We'll All Be Friends!

10 years ago, the first pour was served at The Storm Cellar and a new era at the HI-Banff Alpine Centre began! Backpackers, Hostellers and Locals have come together from all over the planet to enjoy nights of live music, cheap drinks and free pool. Get caught up in the Eye of The Storm, enjoy our daily, weekly and legendary activities such as Karaoke, Jam and Trivia nights as well as live music from local and international independent musicians. See our schedule below!

Monday: Monday Club

We've got what you need after Sunday's Pub Crawl...$4 lasagna, free pool, foosball and darts, and cheap drinks! 

Tuesday: Pool Comp

Are you a pool shark? Win some great prizes and beat your mates in this popular knockout competition.

Wednesday: Jam Night/Open Mic

Your chance to show off your musical skills or sit back and enjoy our host musicians as they entertain the lively crowd after a long day on the Mountain. We have all the instruments set up and ready to go, just bring your talent!

Thursday: Trivia

Come and show off your random knowledge for a chance to win prizes. Every few weeks we chuck in a themed trivia night to keep you on your toes.


Friday: Karaoke Party

Join our biggest and craziest night in The Cellar. Every couple of weeks we theme it up...Ladies Night, 80's Night, Wild Wild West, Super Heroes, Pyjama Night or feel free to make a suggestion to our Activities Coordinator. We've got thousands of songs for you to belt out and new songs as requested.


Live music from a guest band, sometimes we even double up and have a Saturday Karaoke party, or you might be able to watch a live UFC fight. Either way there's always something happening in The Cellar.

Sunday: Pub Crawl

We take you out for locals' night, join our Sunday Funday Pub Crawl. It all kicks off in The Storm Cellar (be sure to get your wristband), then get in the VIP line with us and skip the cover charges downtown.as we lead the way to our top watering holes and dance clubs.
