The TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival is right around the corner and that means the city will soon be filled with the mellifluous sounds of sax and deep rumblings of double bass. As well as the multitude of theatres and art spaces, there are also a wide array of restaurants that double as fantastic venues to enjoy live jazz performances.

Here’s a run-down of what’s to come over the next few days.
