Living at The Rocket means we are pretty fantastically situated to take in some live shows. From jazz to metal and everything in between, you can find something just a few blocks from your front door. We’ve chosen three infamous Victoria venues to tell you about first.
517 Yates Street
For such a small space, Lucky Bar sure does make the most of it. Lucky Bar is definitely known for their fantastic line up of live shows, but also for their 90210 night. This blast from the past takes place every Monday night. Check out their calendar to see if anything strikes your fancy. And if the music isn’t doing it for you, you can always hit up the foosball table.
858 Yates Street
Not even a block away from The Dominion Rocket sits Sugar Nightclub just waiting to be your next favourite live music venue. Artists like Classified, Phantogram, Half Moon Run, Delhi 2 Dublin, and more have all hit the stage at Sugar Nightclub. If you can avoid it, don’t even try checking a coat. It’s mayhem! Sugar is open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Check out their upcoming events here.
Hermann’s Jazz Club
753 View Street
Hermann’s is a Victoria legend, and it’s located right around the corner on View Street. Jazz icons from around the world have been performing at this intimate space for the past 35 years. And some of the patrons have been there since day one. Hermann Nieweler himself, who single-handedly brought world class jazz to Victoria recently passed away in June 2015. Check out the upcoming performers to plan your visit to Hermann’s.
