I'd like to give Hermann's more stars, because the bands playing this club are usually superb. If jazz is your thing, this is Victoria's best spot (i.e., not where to go for rock, hip-hop, country, reggae, bluegrass and so on). Unlike pubs, Hermann's is registered...More

This place seems to be a long-term fixture in Victoria. We went to Hermann's on 25/5/18, and had a nice evening listening to a very good 4-piece jazz combo. The music was great. We had a reservation for 6:30, starting with drinks and dinner (the...More

What a great night! Susan and her team seamlessly pulled off a memorable New Year’s Eve. The five course meal was accompanied by some of the best jazz music we’ve heard in a long time.

This was the highlight of our time in Victoria. We did not eat here, though we enjoyed a nice bottle of organic malbec while we took in the clarinet quintet. Great music and atmosphere. I would love to go back!

I booked a jazz music ticket online. They offer great music. Pub and jazz were great, they often super busy during the show time. No empty seats when I visited there. Cocktail is amazing and the sweet potato fries were good for snack.

Hermann's has the style of an old-school Canadian Jazz club, along the lines of Edmonton's Yardbird Suite or Montreal's old Soliel Levant. It's a characteristic of these clubs that they have a subterranean feel to them, even if they're at or above ground level. Such...More

While I'd visited Victoria several times in the past, I'd never tried to hear live music. This trip, I decided to see what there might be and a quick search turned up Hermann's Jazz Club. It's in the downtown area but if you weren't looking...More
