The Bard & Banker is one of the very few places in Victoria offering live music 7 nights a week starting at 9pm, 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.
