The Strathcona Hotel is adding another venue space to its ever-expanding Strath-verse–Wicket Hall is set to open its doors after a year of waiting. 

Big Bad John’s and the Sticky Wicket will have a new sibling join the family. 

Wicket Hall is the same historic space that has had several names over the years, including Distrikt, 9 ONE 9, Element, Legends, the Forge, the Old Forge, and don’t forget, the New Forge.

The Strath decided that the pandemic was the perfect time to give the space a face-lift and reinvent the space to fill the needs of a post-pandemic Victoria.

DJs, recording artists and bands can be expected to take the stage once the space is open. 

There will also be a golf and sports simulator for guest play.

Events and festivals like a Birthday Celebration, for anyone who turned 19 in the over the pandemic and an Island Craft Festival, for craft beer lovers are just a couple on the calendar prior to their grand opening, which is set to take place on September 23rd and 24th. 

The basement nightclub will hold 600 people and is expected to be one of the new favourite spots for locals and visitors alike.
