just the right size, Goldilocks would love it

We were not familiar with the club so were initially disappointed that we couldn't find a place to sit. This in spite of the fact that it was barely half full. Once we realized... read more

Friend wanted to come here for her birthday. We missed our guestlist time as it is impossible to get a cab. so it was $10 a head but the door lady was nice enough to let the birthday girl in for free. The venue is small and the washroom had 2 stalls out of order and i believe there is... More

Charged us $15 a head to see the last minute of the live band's set last night. Place was less than half capacity. $18 for two drinks. NEVER again. This is probably the worst venue downtown. I've had more fun at Pita Pit.

My friends brought me here last night for my stagette and we had a great time! We're in our later twenties so I was thinking we would feel like the oldest ones there but the crowd was pretty varied. The DJ played a great range of club hits as well. A great last night out as a single lady!

Located downtown Victoria, with a view of the inner harbour and parliament buildings. Classic brick and wooden beam construction makes this a very classy club. Very professional and attentive security and bar staff. Weekly live shows and DJ nights of all genres with great sound system.

We were not familiar with the club so were initially disappointed that we couldn't find a place to sit. This in spite of the fact that it was barely half full. Once we realized that there were good sightlines from most of the bar rails on several levels, we were happy to stand for the show. Even when the club... More

Great atmosphere with beautiful views of the harbor from huge windows from this old charming building. Bathrooms were clean. We saw a wonderful show. All seats are great. No food is served, but we ate dinner ahead of the show & there's a bar for drinks. No one is pushing drinks on you & you are allowed to sit &... More

10:30 at night on friday, no line. My friend was trying shazam a song on his Iphone and the ignorant bouncer wouldn't let him go to the top of the stairs for the phone to hear the music. I mean really? Buy a ticket, LOL. WOW Guess what? You are not a bouncer. Well, maybe he was but he's not... More

Great, great time. Bars close at midnight (yes, I said midnight) in Victoria. After we got shuffled out, we went to this night club which stayed open until 2 AM when they turned on the lights. Bit cramped downstairs, but it was packed to the rafters with everyone ready to party and have a good time. Good music, lights, $5... More
