5) LITTLE JUMBO
If you haven’t found this restaurant yet, just do. One night a girlfriend of mine were wandering around wondering where we could go that would be like a wine bar with great atmosphere, like that mind-blowing little hole-in-the-wall place in Jerusalem or Ireland… you know, where it feels like you’ve found a hidden gem and everyone in the place is smiling about it? That’s Little Jumbo – one of, if not the one coolest spot in Victoria to go for drinks and small plates. Owner Shawn Soole is of previous mixologist at Clive’s Lounge fame. For years when we did our weekly broadcast there Shawn would tell me about his dream to have his own place. Little Jumbo is this dream realized. Go check it out – bottom of Fort. Look for the elephant. CLICK HERE for more info.
