Char's Landing Public House

The 100-Year Old
Renovated Church
That Has Taken
Port Alberni By Surprise

Yes, there is History here - reflected in the building's beautiful construction and the craftsman's attention to detail.

And there is definitely Tradition - as evidenced in the musical roots of some of our finest performers on the West Coast.

But, time standing still? Never!

Come check out our community meeting space, open 7 days a week.

With a recent primary liquor license approval, now there are even more reasons to kick back with friends at the Landing.

For a chat over coffee, or relaxing with a glass of vino, Char's Landing Public House is exactly where you'll want to be, after work or a hot day in the garden - on the patio or indoors. Order in some dinner, and relax!

Our ever-changing line-up of music continues to showcase some of the best talent around, both new and established, and our 100-year-old Renovated Church is one of the best places to just sit back and soak up the acoustics.
