Bring out the metal in you and celebrate your Monday with Metal Monday! Metal Monday offers different types of entertainment every week including once a month live bands who are touring across Western Canada. Covers on live band nights are usually $5.00 and we are always serving up a bucket of 5 iced cold Lucky beers for $20 and shot of Jagermeister for $4. Other Metal Monday events include: Metal Karaoke, Metal Trivia, Name that Metal Band and one of our favorites, Metal BINGO!


It’s CAMBIEOKIE time! Nanaimo’s best version of karaoke, Cambieokie. Your host J-RAD has one of the largest selections of music to choose from in the city and can bring out the inner “singing in the shower” personality. The tunes start playing at 9 PM but the singing starts at 10 PM and we go till 1 AM playing everybody’s favorite music. Don’t want to sing? No problem, the Cambie offers up a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere to just sit back and relax and listen to the voices of Nanaimo. Cambieokie is so popular in Nanaimo that our dance floor is always packed. Come down to The Cambie Nanaimo and tell the world you are a Cambieoker!
