Once a rundown sports bar, the Hecklers Bar & Grill was extensively renovated in 2008 to bring in a fresh lease of life in Victoria's nightlife. Today, this bar is a preferred hangout not just for avid drinkers but also for sports enthusiasts. They can watch the latest football, baseball or basketball team in action on any of its seven television screens that are spread across the room. And how can a sports bar be complete without a gaming room! The Hecklers has a separate section where you can challenge your buddies to a game of pool or foosball. The atmosphere gets even more vibrant during Friday and Saturday evening comedy shows where talented stand-up comedians from across the country perform to entertain the audience. The bar is well stocked with an array of beverages, and its range of wings and other comfort food is amazing. Call ahead or visit their website to know more.
