(Bear & Joey)

By now, we’re sure you’ve heard of, and maybe even visited, downtown Victoria’s latest cafe addition Bear & Joey.

Nestled on the bustling corner of Cook Street and Meares Street, they serve up morning coffee, unique brunch and cocktails, all within a vibrant and spacious backdrop; with a major focus on true hospitality.

But did you know they also host events?

Weddings, staff incentives, corporate dinners, birthday parties, you name it – they do it all!

While Bear & Joey has modified their services to accommodate these interesting times, they are still able to offer small, intimate events, all within BC’s current COVID-19 safety guidelines.

If you’re looking for the perfect venue to throw your next event, you’re in luck! We’ve partnered with Bear & Joey to give away $1,000 in event credit, as well as $20 gift cards to 20 lucky winners – contest details are below.

With an on-site event coordinator, planning your perfect event is a breeze; you can enjoy their unique space as is, or add your own touches.

You can even take advantage of their fresh air patio with a push of a button, allowing even more space for your guests to enjoy.

At Bear & Joey, they believe no two events are ever the same, so they’ve done away with the “blanket” rental charge and encourage guests to chat with them directly, so that they can have a better understanding of your vision.

They offer two styles of service for events at Bear & Joey, canapes and family style service, and a wide array of drink and food options; visit them online to learn more and book your next soiree today!

Not only is Bear & Joey giving away $20 gift cards to 20 winners, they’re also giving away $1000 credit for an event at their venue to one lucky winner!
