Harry Manx -- live music in Herons!

The soul of the Heriot Bay Inn is people and music. Here on the other side of the societal shift called Covid the Inn is learning how to fit into the “new normal” while providing what folks love: fun times with friends.

 Beginning June 25 Herons is open for dinner from 4pm – 7pm and the HBI Pub is open Friday and Saturday evenings at 4pm.

Not only is the Inn open for dinner, but there is LIVE MUSIC coming! Harry Manx is an inimitable fusion of east and west, renowned for his mastery of the 20-stringed mohan veena and his “mysticssippi flavoured” blues & folk. It’s truly wonderful that Harry Manx is journeying to the Inn and performing two nights in Herons, on July 8 & 9.

Things are different, there’s no question. Seating for Harry Manx is organized to allow correct spacing: only pods of six are invited to share a table, immerse in the magic of live music, and enjoy some classic pub fare.

Seats for these intimate evenings with Harry Manx are $99. The menu is your choice of classic HBI burger, chicken brie-L-T, sockeye salmon burger or black bean burger. The Heriot Bay Inn and Herons are committed to protecting the health of guests and staff, have passed a recent VIHA inspection and are operating beyond government-approved spacing and protocols. Reserve a seat for Harry Manx (or dinner any night) by calling 250.285.3322.
