A few more places I've heard nothing about:

 

DOWNTOWN:

 

Garrick's Head/Churchill

Canoe Club

View St Social

Swans

Darcy's

 

Also, now that BC has bought the Comfort Suites Hotel to house homeless, do we assume that'll be the end of Redd's Pub?

I think it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this town has had speakeasies operating in plain sight. You just had to know where to go, and when.

today's tc says strath is open rooftop.  100 seats only.  sounds like they made some hotel renovations during the shutdown.

From the TC:

 

Moon Under Water has applied to the city of Victoria for a patio licence to convert half of its parking lot into a patio, Potter said. The idea is for customers to order at the bar and move outdoors on days with good weather. Ideally, there would be about 40 seats.

 

For those of us patio lovers, this summer might be awesome and a rare bright spot in our pandemic situation. I'm not much of a pub patron except on sunny summer afternoons if they have a patio.  :cheers:

 

Re. Moon. The TC article goes on to say that they will not be opening the lounge they just spent years (?) trying to get approved. That's got to hurt.

To answer the question about Redd's, from the TC today:

 

The second-floor Redd’s Roadhouse Pub, with black-painted floors and red walls, is being turned into a safe consumption site.

Belleville's opens again today.  Bent Mast was open yesterday for in-house dining rather than takeout only.

To the general public, it USED to be a safe consumption site. Now it's just a place where people do drugs under supervision.
