Big Bad John’s

Big Bad John’s is a world famous hillbilly inspired bar where you can relax and just have fun. Make sure you throw your peanut shells on the floor! A local legend in Victoria with a reputation that has been carried the world over by travelers for since 1962. This one of a kind bar holds the first license to serve ever issued in British Columbia and is still going strong.  The peanuts are on us. Complete with tree stump tables and burlap seats you can enjoy a cold draft and peanuts while reading from the many goodwill messages our visitors have left over the decades, or write your own. You might even find one from someone you know.
Open daily noon to 2:00am
