We opened the doors to The Duke Saloon on August 17th, 2014, in what was to become one of the most memorable nights in Victoria nightlife history. You may ask why we decided to open up a country bar here in Victoria? It was out of necessity. Over a four year period we hosted monthly Gone Country nights at our sister venue, Upstairs Cabaret. As Gone Country evolved into one of the most anticipated events in the city, the decision was made to open a permanent country music venue.
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 CRAFT 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, Born Reckless, The Bankes Brothers, The County Line, Whiskey Business, and The Tumblin’ Dice. Every night we are open we can guarantee there’ll be an incredible live band gracing The Jim Beam Stage to bring you incredible music.
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.
