Clive’s Classic Lounge
A Little About Us
Our passion for cocktails is fueled by the desire to introduce guests to unique and magical cocktail experiences with each visit to our bar. Our bar team is in constant search of new products and ingredients that keep Clive’s Classic Lounge on the forefront of this ever-evolving cocktail culture. Lead by bar manager/head bartender Jayce Kadyschuk the Clive’s bar team is continually reinventing themselves with exciting cocktails for our dynamic and seasonally changing cocktail program.
Clive Piercy (or “Mr. P” as he’s fondly referred to) was the founder and owner of the Chateau Victoria. He was a fierce supporter of Victoria’s arts communities, and an avid outdoorsman. At the entrance to the hotel, on your way to Clive’s you will notice a life size statue of Mr. Piercy in full fly fishing attire, with his trusted companion Shaker by his side. Upon entering the bar, you will witness some of Clive’s trophy fish as well as some more commissioned artwork. It is rumored that much of this art was bid on by Clive in an effort to raise the auction price for the charity that would benefit from the many local fundraisers he attended.
Mr. P was a little reluctant to have the lounge take his moniker, but it was the employees of the hotel who rallied to have the classic lounge named after him in 2008, in place of the previous establishment, Victoria Jane’s.
Clive passed away in 2017, but his spirit still thrives throughout the hotel today. Nowhere is that more emphatic than in Clive’s Classic Lounge. From day one, Clive’s took on the reputation of being a cozy place to bring your best friends who appreciate the timeless spirit of class. A fitting tribute to our founder.
