Our server was horrible, we think he was the bar tender too. He told us at 10:30 that he ran out of egg whites for our cocktails yes continued to make the the same cocktails for other tables. We also had empty drinks on our table for almost 10-15 minutes. . He was also very unfriendly and wasn’t able to give any suggestions and seemed to be very lazy. Will not recommend this bar again.

Perfect for Retro Lovers

Relaxed and warm atmosphere

Drinks are fun and named after movies & directors

From the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out, everyone is so friendly and welcoming.

Definitely have to come again.

What a unique concept. We both absolutely loved the space. The drinks were lovely. I did not have any food, but I have heard good things. The service was excellent and overall we loved it. Might be one of my new favourite spots in Calgary.

Great food and drink, always prefer sitting downstairs but sometimes end up being put upstairs so its kind of a dice roll. Service staff is friendly and food is amazing.

It was my first time at this establishment.

I found the servers very welcoming, and on top of their game. (Thank you Kiera?) Environment was fantastic, and the atmosphere was quite enough to have a conversation.

I didn't have any food so I can't comment on that.

But the cocktail I had was fantastic. (Full metal penicillin)

I look forward to going again and would highly recommend coming here if you actually want to talk whomever you are with.

The food and service were wonderful. Our only discomfort was how close the tables were during the pandemic. Omicron can be spread by fully vaccinated folks.

I'd heard great things but was disappointed that our table for two was in an awkward spot at the bottom of the stairs, which was cold and drafty. We ordered cocktails and a mixture of small and large plates, expecting them to be well paced, but no sooner had our drinks arrived than all the small plates came at once followed by the large plates. We felt rushed and could have been in and out in less than an hour having spent the best part of $200. Won't be rushing back.

The Wednesday Room- specifically the basement is a total vibe. A great place for a date, a birthday, a party etc..perfect for any occasion. Love the decor In the basement. Comfy, sophisticated, funky and retro! I love that the seats are all comfy. Feels like you’re sitting on a couch. The music level is perfect and you can actually have conversations without shouting. Food is tasty and not overpriced. Drinks are also incredible and service to match. I highly recommend it. If you’re a popcorn lover lie I am, you just get the popcorn appy!!

Attentive service. Great food (especially loved the brussel sprouts and squash gnocchi). Dig the 70s vibe and chill atmosphere. A nice escape from overcrowded loud cocktail bars or restaurants. I can see becoming a regular here.

Celebrated my mom‘s birthday here last night and it was wonderful. The food was great and easy to share with the table. The cocktails were amazing, our bartender/server Dakota what is the best host. Although it can be quite expensive, it was worth it for a fun night of celebrating 🎉 We will definitely be back again soon!

Great for drinks and ambience is also fun although quite noisy. The brisket and the flank steak were not flavorful and the flank steak combined with kim chi/crispy sushi rice is an odd pairing

Food was sub par for the price. $100 for two people to eat a main course and a dessert. Both meals were very disappointing for this price.
We reserved a table decently ahead of time, but were placed between a drunk table, and two first dates both of which were yelling on top of their lungs to speak to one another. We were hardly able to speak to eachother because I am partially deaf and we are both pretty quiet people.
The service was good but couldn't hear the server. The room was so loud where we were placed, however the upstairs was virtually empty yet we were unable to be moved up there for some reason. The room we were in was packed like sardines, not what you'd expect when you reserve well ahead of time and pay the price we paid.
We left with our ears ringing and taste buds desiring something more, could have made better food at home, or went to earls for a better dinner.

This is a cool spot. The ambiance inside and the decor gave a retro bougie bunker feel. We shared a bunch of small plates which provided a lot of variety and each dish was so well balanced. I would definitely come back here again.

We had great service - host and server, both great. Cozy seating, good level for music, I could still hear my table.

The cocktails were lacking. The choose your own mixture feature to the cocktail menu felt a bit like a moxies vibe and the cocktails we mediocre.
Got the charcuterie board and it was a bit boring. Crackers were stale.
I was really hoping for a better food and drink experience.

Great atmosphere, a favorite go to to get dressed up and have a great meal! The menu is always changing so it never gets stale and I've never left still hungry. The cocktails make you feel fancy AF and the speakeasy vibe with mood lighting makes you feel at ease! Amazing place we go every six months or so!

Overall had an enjoyable evening!
Tried the new menu
Brussel sprouts- my favourite
Mushroom toast and squash gnocchi were also delicious.
The fingerling potatoes I think could be improved.
We were imagining more delicate potatoes (not huge chunks) and more creme fresh!! Chili oil was great but overall heavy, dry, mealy potatoes.
The German chocolate cake was very tasty!

We all loved the meals We Ordered . Interior design, outstanding. The host was barely audible , asked us for our vaccination cards twice and seemed stoned. We asked to be sat in the basement but he said it was not possible. Later, we went down and there were 3 open tables.

Such a great restaurant! A little hidden on Stephen Avenue, the decor was part modern hipster meets The Shining… and the food was scary good! Came here with friends before seeing a play and the service was great. The waiter was able to make a custom mocktail for me and it was divine! Ordered the fried ciabatta, crispy salmon with quinoa, and a matcha tres leches (yup!) to top it all off. Will definitely be back.

We enjoyed our time @ the Wednesday room, pretty cool vibe and the food was AMAZING! The only drawback was we found the cocktails a touch pricey (but this is Calgary).
