About Us


The Grass Valley Elks 538 was chartered in 1900.  It is one of the oldest Elk Lodges still operating in their original building.  The beautiful brick building is located in Historic Downtown Grass Valley on the corner of South School and West Main Streets. We are in our second century of giving and serving our community.

Our building is over 18,ooo square feet. The main floor houses our spectacular lodge meeting room, a grand ballroom with a floating dance floor (one of the last, west of the Mississippi), and members' social quarters.

Bistro  538  is located in our downstairs dining room. Our delicious meals are prepared in our commercial kitchen by Chef Marc Mason.  We are currently serving Drive-Thru meals on Friday evenings from 5,:30 pm, to 6:00 p.m.  Sit down dinners with live music every Friday night from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in our outdoor Bistro Gardens or indoor 

dining room with live music every Friday.

Our Drive-Thru is located on the south side of the Elks building (109 S. School St.) in the downstairs area. Access is gained through the Bank of America parking lot from S. Church St. Follow the signs up the alley to the OPEN sign and double red door.
