Vancouver?

Here for work, but have some free time. Gorgeous fucking place. Any reccos for good bars? Restaurants? Maybe places to see live music? Maybe cool instrument stores, preferably used? Other stuff to do?

49th Parallel is insane coffee.

yes on Zulu for records. My fav record store ever.

Thanks for the tips... I flew out on Friday, but by happenstance I did get a beer at the Alibi room. I also had some really good sushi at a place near there (Sea Monster Sushi). Was unable to see any music, hopefully there will be a next time. Spent most of Friday ahead of my flight walking around Stanley Park. Good grief... I had no idea Vancouver was so over-the-top scenery-wise. I'd be surprised if there's a more gorgeous city from a nature perspective.
