Bard & Banker is a Scottish-style bar. The waiters are all dressed in plaid skirts and there are live music. The building itself used to be a bank in the 1800s and is now the most unique place in downtown Victoria. Breakfast starts at 7:00, and there is a happy hour discount from 4-6:00 in the afternoon.
Stopped by here because of the heritage factor. This is a super cool building and atmosphere to be in. You get to enjoy a few drinks in an old bank, how cool is that! Service was great even though the house was packed. Live entertainment was on while we sipped some local craft beers. Sweet as!
Had an office function at Bard and Banker for about 50 folks. One server handled all drinks and endless appies with style. Great local beers on tap.
There were 6 of us for dinner. We were seated in a small room that was great more like a private alcove. We all ordered something different and every dish was fantastic. I had the salmon and it was so moist and delicious. A hamburger was ordered and again they said it was so juicy and delicious. Great service and they really take care of their guests.
This is a wonderful bar with an incredible beer and drink menu. we were there on a Saturday right before the music started around 9pm. The place was very busy and the wait staff were working hard. Service was fast for a busy place and everyone was friendly. Had some great appetizers and beer and stayed for two hours to listen to the band. They have a small dance floor but it was full. Beautiful bar and woodwork iun a former bank building.
