The Daily Scot: Strathcona Pop-Up

In addition to the cool tin shack like video game room there’s a great outdoor courtyard space for events decorated with re-purposed items and seating if grabbing a bite from the attached cafe/bicycle shop.

This is what I love about the older light industrial areas in East Vancouver: there is enough affordable space to provide an opportunity for burgeoning companies shop such as Landyachtz while the preservation of grittiness keeps the area creative and funky.
Check it out: LANDYACHTZ LONGBOARDS factory store (1146 Union Street).
