Jokers Club

Bastion Square Victoria BC
No Longer Operating

The "Club" was named after George H. "Joker" Patton who was the proprietor of the Halfway House in Esquimalt from 1928 to 1936. One could not obtain a license in Victoria unless you were a veterans organization (like Army, Navy & Airforce) or unless you were an organized club. Patton began the Joker's Club where for a very small fee (someone told me it was a dime) you could join the club and drink there. I understand that at first it was a bottle club where you brought your own booze, but because it was a "club" you could drink the bottle on the premises.
