Shelter Cocktail Bar Calgary

Cocktail Bar & Lounge


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 shared tasting plates to sate one’s hunger.

Combining roots in pre-prohibition style cocktails with cutting-edge, modern mixing technology, SHELTER features a seasonally rotating cocktail list, as well as an extensive selection of sought-after spirits and wines. We serve a boutique collection of sharing plates combining local ingredients and international flavours. We promise only one thing, an intimate fallout experience.

SHELTER cocktail bar is a one-of-a-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.
