Cardero's Live Bait Marine Pub

Pub in Downtown & West End

Nestled between Coal Harbour's bobbing boats, the restaurant here is fine but the little pub on the side is better. With cozy leather sofas, a wood-burning fireplace and great views of the marina, it has a decent menu of comfort food (we recommend the wok dishes and oyster burger) as well as drafts, from Strongbow to local Red Truck Lager.

There's also live music, typically of the guitar-wielding singer-songwriter variety, every night.
