The Little Jumbo: a Speakeasy You Won’t Want to Miss

The Little Jumbo resembles something out of the 1880s. Warm lighting, brick walls, booze stored in something like old bookshelves. This ambiance isn’t an accident; it’s extreme attention to detail. The owners named their restaurant and bar after an establishment once owned by the father of modern mixology, Harry Johnson.

The original Little Jumbo received Johnson as its owner way back in 1882 in New York City. This modern homage in Victoria prides itself in “the fine craft of preparing fresh local food with a focus on continental and contemporary, and pairing it with fine wines and the best of classic and modern mixology.” And all in the spirit of Harry Johnson.
