Victoria’s music scene just got bigger and more hyped up than ever before!

The city’s most happening night club, Upstairs Cabaret, has just completed a venue expansion and now has the capacity to hold 500 music lovers at a time.

From recent acts like Run the Jewels, Lil B, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, to historic performances from Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sir-Mix-A-Lot, and Alice and Chains this is Victoria’s number one place to see a live show and witness some of the biggest acts in the world.

This much awaited expansion will let event organizers book bigger shows than ever before, add new features to club nights, and allow more and more Victorians to enjoy future performances at the venue.

The best part?

You can see the stage no matter where you’re standing, thanks to the varied height staging levels throughout the club. It’s a way better alternative to paying for relatively lower priced concert tickets and barely being able to see the show!

Sitting above the famous Darcy’s Pub, the venue overlooks Victoria’s inner harbour, and occupies one of the most accessible locations in town.

Over the last year, Upstairs Cabaret has also done several other upgrades to their interior, like increasing the size of the bathrooms and installing a 20×12 foot visual wall.

So if you stop by on Canada day, you can watch the fireworks and bust out your best moves in front of the new 20+ foot visual wall!

The expansion means that we can match the demand of the club with the ever-evolving live music and club scene. It is a big step forward for Victoria as a whole. It will allow the region to be more competitive giving us a better nightlife,” says Dave Bain, Program and Market Strategy Manager at Upstairs Cabaret.
