“Really like it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

I've been going to VJ's for many, many years and always visit when I am in Ottawa. VJ turned 78 in 2013 (!) and is quite a character. "City living at country prices", may he go on forever!

“A classy bar in downtown Ottawa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

An institution in Ottawa,VJ's is located near Ottawa City Hall and the Provincial Courthouse.
VJ, the owner/bartender/server, is an ex-professional hockey player who exudes charisma and a gruff charm. He is ageless and timeless. Piano bar on Friday nights and VJ often sings his version "My Way" or imitates Willie Nelson. He also provides free popcorn, peanuts and munchie mix.
Worth a visit just to see the photos and posters on the wall.
