"...floating blissfully through a world of wine and liquor..."
Can I just live here? I have at the very least found my new temple of worship. Upon entry I think I could feel my pupils dilate and dopamine rush through my system, and suddenly I was floating blissfully through a world of wine and liquor as smiling faces greeted me and bottles of all colours sparkled before me on endless shelves reaching as far as my eyes could see. Leather chairs complemented the whiskey area, and a huge table was set up within a wine corridor with a woman leisurely sipping some sort of cream liqueur on one end.
I think after about 20 min of staring all dopey-eyed at the selection of gins and absinthe my BF came up behind me telling me they do tastings as well. One of the liquor saints who works there began to tell me all about the events and it almost brought tears to my eyes, it all sounded so lovely, and at $20, so affordable.
After humming and resisting filling up an entire cart like someone's trophy wife in the Hamptons, I finally decided we need to try cake flavored vodka. (How seriously could I come to any other conclusion? Cake vodka. Why not?) Not wanting to leave, but beginning to feel like a weirdo for staying so long, I took my blue bottle to the cash register when I was stopped.
"Would you like to try it first?"
So, yes - they let me TRY THE VODKA before buying it. A part of me was just thinking that this is what all liquor stores should be like. But that's the difference. It caters to people like us who love and appreciate alcohol fully. Not just to pick up a mickey for the weekend, but to really enjoy our vice from start to finish (welll, maybe not always finish....)
Best liquor store ever.
"Amazing selection, super helpful & friendly staff..."
This is the nicest Liquor Store I have ever been in.
Amazing selection, super helpful & friendly staff, LEATHER ARMCHAIRS just in case, you know, you feel like a little rest... Incredible. Oh, and have I mentioned that it's brand new and absolutely gorgeous?
I want to bring my laptop here and just hang out for the afternoon.

"...a fantastic selection of craft beer, specialty wines and spirits"
No trip around the False Creek area is worth while if you don't stop at Legacy Liquor Store.
It's the biggest privately owned liquor store in Canada and has a fantastic selection of craft beer, specialty wines and spirits. If are in a rush to pick up something on the go, however, this may not be the place for you. Their selection does not make it easy on the consumer. Often I walk in planning on just making a quick purchase and end up spending 20 minutes trying to decide on what to get. But if you have the time to make such wonderful decisions I couldn't direct you to a better place!
The store even has it's own customer loyalty plan where you can earn points towards store credit. On top of that it also accepts CAMRA memberships, which gives you 10% off of your purchase! your losing money going anywhere else.
