What is The Needle Vinyl Tavern?

Simply, The Needle is an urban multi-genre music venue with a great restaurant and bar. If you take a look around this one of a kind space you will find that there is nothing really “simple” about it. For instance, the building was built in 1912 and it was the home of the CKUA radio station for 56-years before they moved into their current location in the historic Alberta Hotel building.


How Would You Describe An Evening at The Needle Vinyl Tavern?

Our idea behind the “feel” of The Needle Vinyl Tavern is for guests from every walk of life and every musical taste to walk in and feel like they have been invited to join a great band’s after party. The beer, wine, and booze are flowing, the food’s fresh & delicious while great live music is jamming in the background, and both are helping set the tempo for the rest of your night’s events and conversations.

What Makes The Needle Different from the Other Similar Restaurants, Bars & Music Venues in Edmonton?

We have a commitment to our guests to offer up great live music seven days a week! That’s why we have one of the very best sound systems around and hand pick the talent we feature on stage.

Our bartenders specialize in handcrafted drinks that feature the best liquors and liqueurs as well as the freshest juices and syrups. From classic to contemporary, you can trust our bar staff to come up with a custom, well-crafted concoction suited to satisfy any palate.

Our wine, beer, and spirit libraries have been hand-selected to provide a healthy variety for the most discerning palates. Take a gander or ask your barkeep for a “bartender’s choice” if you feel overwhelmed by the selection.

Our upscale take on classic tavern fare will keep you coming back for more. We try our very best to find great local producers to supply some of our fresh ingredients. We know freshness, quality and consistency are important and we won’t disappoint.
