Helm Conference 2022

You’ll find we’re a casual crowd here on the west coast; we love a great patio, great food, and we know how to raise a great glass! 

 

Check out why we love to eat and sip here:

Wind Cries Mary – Has to be said: best fried chicken, ever – super cool food and an amazing vibe!
Milestones – Casual dining right in the inner harbor, watch it all: seaplanes, ferries, yachts and tugs (oh, and people too!)
Il Terrazo – A local favorite, a cozy Italian nook with brick fireplaces, a patio & notable wine list.
Fisherman’s WharfOnly steps away from the Inn at Laurel Point, this unique destination offers an eclectic mix of casual food kiosks and shops right on the water.

Canada’s craft beer revolution started in Victoria. We’ll share our favorite local spirits and brews – we’ll see you at the bar

  

Little Jumbo for craft cocktail inspiration,
the Churchill for a long polished bar and great offerings on tap,
the Bard and Banker for good food soaked in Klondike history,
Clarke and Co for the Gorgonzola Bacon Fries (like poutine, but better).
Clive’s Classic Lounge for the perfect Old Fashioned,
The Drake in Market Square for a perfect local pint, and 
Driftwood Bar and Patio offering the famous hop-monster Fat Tug
