Jimi Hendrix’s grandmother’s Vancouver restaurant will open to the public today after months of restoration.

The grand opening will feature look-a-likes and the CD release of building owner Vincent Fedora.

The inside of the building has been restored to its original look and painted red, orange and purple.

Fedora discovered the property’s history when he visited the Jimi Hendrix Experience Museum in Seattle. He saw an envelope containing a postcard Jimi Hendrix wrote to his grandmother with the address of his property, 207 Union St., written on it.
