Victoria is a historic venue with a vibrating cultural background. It has previously been a cinema, theater and cabaret scene. Victoria is now an intimate concert venue with excellent sound and lighting, both for the audience and the artists. The concert program reflects the high quality of the Norwegian, as well as the international jazz scene, mainly from modern/melodic jazz, but the program range from mainstream to free improvisation.

Victoria has a capacity of 300 persons, whereof 220 are seated and the rest of the audience is standing. The seats aren’t numbered; therefore you should come early if you want ensure yourself a seat.

In front of the stage, you’ll find cozy cafe tables, and in the back of the room there is an amphitheater with comfortable sofa seats. In addition, there are galleries on each side of the scene, so the view of the scene is good from every seat.

The bar has a classic jazz bar profile, with good wines and classic cocktails. There is no food served at Victoria.
