Open every Friday and Saturday night, the Duke Saloon has quickly established itself as one of Victoria’s premier live music venues. The Duke also opens its doors for special events, including catered private parties and charity functions.
Why a country bar in Victoria? It was out of necessity! Over a four year period, the monthly Gone Country at Upstairs Cabaret established itself as one of the most anticipated events in the city. Following the massive success of these themed nights, the decision was made to open up a permanent country music venue. The Duke Saloon opened its doors to the public for the first time on August 17th, 2014, in what has become one of the most memorable nights in Victoria nightlife history.
The Duke Saloon was born into an old brick building originally constructed in 1902 for the BC Electric Company to house its street cars. This space has been home to a variety of nightlife locales over the years before undergoing a massive renovation to birth the venue you see today. Along with neighbourhood businesses such as Canoe Brewpub and Phillips Brewing and Malting Co., the Duke has established itself at the centre of one of downtown Victoria’s up-and-coming districts.
The Duke Saloon is proud to be a promoter of rising country music acts, including local bands like Fox & Hound, Bryce Allan, The County Line, Chris Eriksen Co., and The Tumblin’ Dice. We can guarantee that every Friday, and Saturday evening there will be a talented group of artists taking the Jim Beam Stage to bring you awesome live tunes.
Come on by and check out the Duke’s nightly drink features, including a variety of canned craft and domestic beer and a wide selection of bourbons. For more details stay tuned to the Duke’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
The Duke Saloon is a proud member of the Frontier Group, a family that includes both Darcy’s Pub locations, Frontier Food Catering, and Upstairs Cabaret.
Make your way down to the Duke whenever you get the chance. Treat yourself to a drink or two and enjoy some incredible music. We’re always happy to see you.
