Bard in the Yard is different, unique, one-of-a-kind. It's Shakespeare outdoors and in your face. “Everyone I know needs to go watch this!”

About DLC

The DLC is a unique spot in downtown Elko. Our building is home to a variety of businesses. The Gallery, The Gallery Bar, the offices of Jacques Errecart, owner and local architect, and soon, the Inn at DLC. Reserve the Duncan LittleCreek Gallery and the Gallery Bar for a party or reception. Ask about our outdoor space.

A Vision

Owners Jacques Errecart, Jennifer Anderson, and Joan Anderson are the creators of the Duncan LittleCreek Gallery and always strive to share their artistic and eclectic endeavors with as many people as we possibly can. They share a common goal of creating a place for artists in Elko.

“I always tell people that the Duncan LittleCreek is actually kind of a confluence of three very distinct personalities, but we all share a common vision and that is we just want to elevate the value of art in this community,” Errecart said.

Ideas started flowing when Jacques and Joan joined their vision, enthusiasm, hard work, and education. This historic building was reborn. As a slightly later addition to the team, Jennifer worked to further enhance the customer experience with an ever changing menu, live music, plays, and more.

As always, Jacques, Joan, and Jennifer invite and encourage you to enjoy this space and all that their spirits can bring to it. Thank you for your support and encouragement.

A Venue for the Arts

Duncan LittleCreek Gallery is one of the art centers of Elko, featuring painting, jewelry, sculpture, and more. DLC offers a comfortable, smoke- free atmosphere with an extensive list of wine, craft beer, specialty martinis, and cocktails made with the freshest ingredients.

In 2017, Duncan LittleCreek Gallery & the Gallery Bar received the 2017 Mayor's Arts Award for Arts Organization for their support of art, music, theater, poetry, and storytelling. Besides the contemporary artwork exhibits by local and out-of-town artists, DLC also features live music and theater productions including the highly popular Poe & Pints and Bard in the Yard events. Said current Elko City Mayor Chris Johnson, "If you’re looking for art in the atmosphere of downtown Elko, the Duncan LittleCreek Gallery and Wine Bar is a sure bet,” Johnson said in his introduction. “During the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, their open mic night is one of the most popular in town with poets and storytellers.” To read more about DLC's award, view the artcile in the Elko Daily Free Press!

Over the years, DLC has also been voted “Best Bar” and “Best Place for Live Entertainment” in the Elko Daily Free Press Readers’ Choice Awards and is a favorite destination for locals and area visitors alike. It’s a great place to see live music, plays, artist receptions, book parties, weddings, and other occasions.
