Welcome To the Bard & Banker Scottish Pub
With 12 000 square feet of space, the capacity to seat up to 320 people and one of the biggest kitchens not attached to a hotel in Victoria we are able to cater to a few friends for lunch or an entire conference of people. With so much space we are able to open up or close off as much space as your group needs.
We can accommodate to each group’s specific needs so you can simply make a reservation for you and your friends and order off our menu or we can work with you to build a custom style of service and even create a special menu just for the occasion. From a reservation for two people to a conference of 200 the options are endless.
At the Bard & Banker we have live music Wednesday thru Saturday nights starting at 8:30pm with no cover charge so you and your friends can come and enjoy all the local talent Victoria has to offer.
With so much flexibility we truly can offer something for everyone, the Bard & Banker combines the warmth of an old world pub with the technology and convenience of today.
Each area of the room is individually controlled for sound and we can adjust this according to your groups needs, we also have a closed circuit in house TV system which displays the stage so no matter where you are sitting you can still enjoy the live entertainment.

THE VAULT 20-30 guests
Back in the days of the bank this is where one of the two vaults was located. Back then the single men used to sleep over night in the bank with a loaded gun to guard the contents, now we don’t encourage people to sleep here but if 20 to 30 people want to have dinner that works instead.
