New Liquor Store in Kitsilano!

Just what this hood needs! (jk)

Anyway the SW corner of Burrard & 8th is about to become home to some liquor vendor or other- not open yet-will keep you posted.
Or not.

  1. Wasn't that a printing shop ?

    Liberty ?

    Hopefully not a Liquor Barn or Liquor Depot .......

      It was indeed a printing shop. I've been wondering what was going in there. Liberty would be great.

        Or Mark Anthony Fine Wines ...........

    2. Oh that'd be nice, I wouldn't have to hoof it up to Kits Wine or crapping out into Bimini's when I'm in need and I've drank my sister dry on visits. :)

        Walked by on my way home, paper is off the windows, signage is up and someone was stocking the shelves with beverages. It is called Burrard Liquor Store and appears to be an independent carrying wine and spirits.

          Just moved here from California. How can you get orgasmic over a liquor store? Especially considering the quality of merch you have to offer.

            We don't have orgasm-quality liquor stores here like you do in California. Always hopeful though.

              "just moved here from California. How can you get orgasmic over a liquor store?"

              The responses as posted are somewhat nuanced and there's an undercurrent of irony that you have yet to actualise.

                Well, this is just up the street from my cafe. Hmmm. I'll be a patron. Hopefully they carry some good product.

        2. Hmm, it might be the group behind Venue nightclub, the Caprice, and others - at least that's who the domain name "" is owned by.

            That would make sense. The Adelphia Group already owns and runs the Crosstown Liquor Store in Tinseltown and the Dover Arms store too. Selection's not great but not bad either.
