It’s time to forget that tattered madness of the outside world and seek refuge from the storm. SHELTER exists for the weary urban traveler to step into a new world, a private alcove offering a selection of delicately crafted cocktails, precisely chosen wines, and a variety of tasting items to sate one’s hunger.
Combining roots in pre-prohibition style libations with cutting-edge, experimental cocktail technology, SHELTER features a seasonally rotating cocktail list, as well as an extensive selection of sought-after spirits and wines. Our menu is creatively designed to emulate what might be created in a locked survival vault. We promise only one thing, an intimate fallout experience.
The SHELTER cocktail bar is a one-of-kind location, unique to Calgary. Designed for small groups and parties, the room houses several standout design pieces, including an artfully decorated wall of gas masks, and a beautifully crafted light fixture featuring over 5,000 individually hung bulbs.
Gaining access to SHELTER is not complicated. We request our visitors abide by a few house rules:
Honest, clean attire requested. Treat the staff with respect and class. No reservations. If the location is at capacity, we will call you when your table is ready. And finally, don’t invite anyone to SHELTER you wouldn’t bring to your mother’s house for Sunday dinner.
