Molson Canadian Hockey House will be a refuge, a retreat, a party zone, and a hub for all things hockey during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. The House will host players, teams, fans, VIPs and delegates throughout the course of the Olympic activities in 2010.
The facility will be located at Concord Pacific Place, in North East False Creek between Creekside Park and GM Place. Here are some fast facts about the venue:
The Molson Canadian Hockey House will be in operation from 11:00am until 2:00am every day and opens to the public from February 12 until February 28, 2010.

Multi-day VIP passes went on sale this morning and although they cost a pretty penny there are still three levels of ticket options (bronze, silver and gold). The Bronze package includes the Opening Ceremonies on Day 1 (February 12th) for $495. If that’s out of your range but you would still like to take part, they are also looking for volunteers to help host the Hockey House.

Update January 7th, 2010
I have received word that MCHH is selling pretty well so far with VIP passes completely sold out when Team Canada plays Team USA in the Olympic tournament. Spots to hang out at the Hockey House during Other Team Canada games are still available as well as FAN ZONE passes, which start at just $99. The FAN ZONE passes aren’t as exclusive as the VIP obviously, but you get access to the lounge, a great hockey-watching atmosphere, food, and two complimentary beverages (with many chances to purchase more from any of the bars after that).
Along with other events and entertainment there will also be a Gretzky Tribute Night on February 19th. It has also been confirmed that “The Great One” will be in attendance.
Update January 19, 2010
Since the price has dropped to $99 for the Fan Zone the website is slammed today with ticket orders. You can still get your tickets by calling 1 866 523 8959 if you can’t get through online.
Update February 10, 2010
The Molson Canadian Hockey House opened up for media today with special introductions from Tyler Stewart and Sean Cullen.
I didn’t spend much time inside between events but I’ll be there on Friday to catch the opening ceremonies from this mega hockey & beer haven.
