Hi all,
Hoping for some help. Looking for a venue to host 50 + for cocktails and appetizers in Calgary for the financial industry. Would like a private room in a restaurant or bar?
Any suggestions? All help is much appreciated.

    Check out Osteria de Medici on 10th st. NW in Kensington. Choice of a couple of rooms

        I suppose it depends on what type of "financial crowd" you're hosting, but I'd suggest something right in the core.

        Osteria seems to get mixed reviews at best and if I was hoping to impress a group of people, I wouldn't want to risk it. FWIW, any of the IBs I know wouldn't be caught dead at Osteria... A little too "Versace", rather than "Tom Ford".

        I'd look to see if I could book the Lounge Central 899 in Le Germain, or even Charcut.

          This is a wine store in downtown Calgary that you can book for private functions. Really cool space in the basement surrounded by wine :). The appies we had there were excellent. We went as a wine tasting party, I am sure there were over 50 people there.
