Cocktails in Calgary
- Jetgirly Nov 19, 2007 05:48 PM
This is the third time I've lived in Calgary. The first time, I spent more money on alcohol than tuition (sad but true). The second time, I didn't drink for the entire year. Now, I have finally entered adulthood and know how to drink responsibly. The Girls are looking for a place for cocktails (preferably of the slushy pink variety, and ideally with plastic animals decorating the rim of the glass) and perhaps snacks on Friday night, and we need your suggestions! Please no big chains... Moxies, Milestones, Earls etc. are BLAH.

Good recommendations but sadly, Mortal Coil is no longer. I'll second Raw Bar and Ming. Vicious Circle is an old standby, but they've got a ridiculously long martini list. I occasionally work at Velvet so I have to recommend them as well, although to my knowledge, there aren't any plastic animals or pink slush. It's a good place to start off or spend the night, so long as you don't mind being in a spot that's not super busy.
