McBarge

The McBarge, officially named the Friendship 500, was a McDonald’s restaurant, built on a barge for Expo ’86 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Moored on Expo grounds in Vancouver’s False Creek, it was the first floating McDonald’s location in the world, intended to showcase future technology and architecture. Although the floating design allowed for the barge to operate in a new location following the exhibition, the derelict McBarge has since 1991 been anchored empty in Burrard Inlet, amid industrial barges and an oil refinery.
