Doc Willoughby's


353 Bernard Ave, Kelowna, BC

Phone: 250.868.8288

Doc Willoughby's was one of the hottest clubs for rock music in Kelowna for decades. It was located right downtown on Bernard Ave. It was a relatively small pub that served great pub fare. They had a tiny stage that they managed to squeeze rock bands onto on a regular basis, and they also had an equally small mosh pit / dance floor in front of it which in normal times was often packed to the gills.
