Named as a nod to the United States’ 18th Amendment (the one that signalled the start of the Prohibition era, when booze sales were illegal, and the speakeasy scene was born), Lounge Eighteen is aiming to be Calgary’s chic new cocktail lounge destination.
With renovations almost complete on the former retail space, Lounge Eighteen is prepping to launch with a menu of classic cocktails with a twist, as well as an elegant food menu.
Drinks include a Smoked Rosemary Gine & Tonic, a Oaxaca Old Fashioned, and the R.C’s Georgia (Hennessy, Apple Brandy, Crème de Peach Liquor, Mint Bouquet), among other concoctions.
Food offerings promise to be nothing if not beautiful on the plate; they’ve teased so far on their social media a dish like their Pan-Seared Gnocchi, for example.
Lounge Eighteen looks to be in its final stages of prep to open; they’re urging future guests to sign up to their “members” listhttp://www.loungeeighteen.com/members-only for updates on the menu, opening date, and more. Their hours will be Monday through Thursday from 11 am to midnight; Fridays from 11 to 2am; Saturdays from 2 pm to 2 am; and Sundays from 2 pm to midnight.
