Nice big patio and open doors to the bar. Not overly busy for traffic noise. Good service. Recommend the happy hour from 3 to 6 with a lager and a few other drinks being $4. Good place to go and relax.

We've spread our wings and opened our first Browns Socialhouse on Vancouver Island. We're centrally located at the exciting new development, "The Falls", in the heart of downtown Victoria and adjacent to the world famous Empress Hotel and Victoria Conference Centre. This location draws in tourists and locals alike. Hope to see you there!
