Bar Chouette: New wine and cocktail bar opens today in Calgary

May 31 2023, 4:30 pm

Bar Chouette, an exciting new French-influenced contemporary wine and cocktail bar, is opening today in Calgary.

Located in the heart of YYC in the Beltline community, this could definitely become one of the best bars in the city.

The entire menu will be an “exploration of tried-and-true traditions with a modern twist.”

From spirited rosemary brown butter old-fashioned drinks to fruity and floral “jam on toast” cocktails, the menu is an exploration into fun.

The Citrus Spice is a drink made with rapidly infused rum, lime, grapefruit, and a secret blend of eight spices that includes tarragon, labrador tea, and Szechuan peppercorns. The Violette Haze is the spot’s take on a sour, shaken with crème de violette, elderflower liqueur, and house-made fresh mint syrup. You can’t go wrong so take a seat at the bar and enjoy the show.

The French-inspired wine list is long and incredibly well-curated, too.

As for food, the menu is the perfect size with dishes ideal for sharing and enjoying over beverages. There are snacks, a raw bar, small plates with unique ideas, and large plates (we suggest the steak frites with triple-cooked potatoes and café de Paris butter.

The decor inside looks bright, with an exceptional bar for seating, plenty of plants, neon signs, and art inspired by pop culture moments, like the dancing scene in Pulp Fiction.

This is one of the most exciting YYC openings and it might be the perfect spot to hit after checking out the Lilac Festival.
