Hitman’s Bar: Bret Hart's new restaurant opens tonight in Calgary

Feb 10 2023, 10:00 pm

Hitman’s Bar, a highly anticipated new restaurant concept from Canadian sports and entertainment icon Bret “The Hitman” Hart, is finally open.

This long-awaited spot has been in the works for four years, so the fact it’s finally here is incredibly exciting.

Its opening on Friday, February 10 will be official at 4 pm — inside the Cowboys Casino.

The space is a multi-room eatery and lounge offering contemporary modern cuisine, elevated dining, and a lively nightlife experience, while always remembering its Calgary roots. Besides being inside the vibrant casino and close to the Saddledome, this new restaurant and bar will host wrestling events, as well as play sports (like the upcoming Superbowl) and other special events.

The large and open space features 25 TVs that can be seen from every seat in the house, a private dining room, and an exclusive food menu.

“The final menu has some of my all-time favorite dishes to prepare, including Fried Goat Cheese, Our Crispy Chicken Sandwich & Steak Frites,” said Chetty Michaels, the executive chef, in a media release.

This new concept feels entirely new (especially after renovations), and there are also many of The Hitman’s iconic memorabilia showcased, including the world heavyweight championship belt he won in 1992 against Ric Flair in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

“We will have something for everyone, whether you are looking for a place before and after the game — there’s something here for everyone in the Calgary community,” said Seamus Smyth, operations partner, in a press release.

“This venue is exactly what our city needs, an opportunity to celebrate a Canadian icon while enjoying good food and drinks,” said Dennis O’Neill, the owner of the restaurant, in the release.
