West coast craft beer is our focus with local, organic, fresh and fabulous food served in a casual atmosphere.
Most of our beer is made right here in Victoria, some just steps away. We also seek out unique and interesting offerings from slightly further afield, the line-up is always changing, come and see what’s on tap today.
Our service is British pub-style counter service. Come up to the bar to order and we’ll take care of you. If you’re ordering food, we’ll bring it out to you.
Known to most of our customers in Victoria as just “The Drake” we take pride in serving what we feel, is the best of local craft beers.
For those who are curious, our name is a homage to the original Drake Hotel and Beer Parlour that opened on the corner of Store and Johnson in 1954, the first to open after prohibition was lifted. It closed 20 years later, in 1974.
