After nearly 100 years as Campbell River's premier dirty watering hole, The Quinsam Hotel is set to permanently close April 25th. The Quinnie, as it's affectionately known, is an unmistakably unpretentious public house with a slant towards country music. Although the prime objective of visiting the Quinsam was definitely getting your drink on, their karaoke nights were also wildly popular.
I'm only the slightest bit melancholy myself, having only been there a handful of times. Most of those times being just recently. I saw some heavy metal bands (Tribune, The Joint Chiefs) play there of all things! And I must say... it was a blast.
Good bye old Quinnie, you will be missed.
