Located at the intersection of Cambie and Cordova streets, the Cambie touts itself as the oldest bar in Vancouver. It’s been in the same location since 1897.

BC Assessment records show the property as being assessed at $11.5 million as of July 1, 2018.

Other outlets are reporting that the building at 300 Cambie Street "changed hands on May 31 for $14.96 million."

An Instagram story from local podcaster "panicdots" posted to Reddit seems to be the flashpoint of the news hitting the web today.
