Come for dinner, stay for the show.

The Bard & Banker is one of the very few places in Victoria offering live music 7 nights a week with NO cover charge. Except on New Years Eve and St.Patrick’s day. We feature mostly local musicians from Victoria with others coming from surrounding islands and the mainland.

Sunday nights are “unplugged,” drawing inspiration from the MTV Unplugged Series, where all the music was performed acoustic and interactive with the audience.

Venezuelan Fundraiser

Join us in raising money for underprivileged youth in Venezuela through music, drinks and food. On May 2nd we will be serving traditional Arepas, hand made with love by our very own Carlos. All proceeds from the sale of Arepas and pints of Phillips & Hoyne will go directly to the cause. We will also have Latin music by Miguelito Valdes & friends from 7pm, a silent auction, 50/50 draw and more.

We have chosen to donate all proceeds to Kapuy, a non profit organization that supports and offers opportunities to the vulnerable children of Venezuela.
