    i was at the casino for a charity event. From the moment that i entered the staff was very helpful and courteous and friendly. The buffet food that we were served was excellent - roast beef with all the fixings, and excellent baked desserts. it was a good night even if the cards didn't go my way

    My husband and I visited Burwood Distillery to try their Gin and we were not disappointed. The lunch offerings were very good too, especially the tart cherry duck wings.

    This past April I turned 18. Long story short, I love country life from music to bars. My mom and dad surprised me and took me to Calgary for my birthday so I can have fun like an adult in at a place where I always wanted to go.

    Like I said I love country bars, so we all decided that Ranchman's was worth checking out, so we did.

    My favorite part was getting drunk and riding the bull lol 😂😂😂

    I also enjoyed learning some good old Country dancing.

    It is I will definitely come back one day with my buddies.

    A good place to see the drag performances and to dance the night away. Truly a good venue for up and coming drag performers. I would say it used to be the place to go to just have fun, but it's not the same anymore. Patrons can expect political rhetoric from the drag performers, and the door staff have been told that they can take patrons' vapes if they see vaping in the club.

    Tip: They check id and if you don't have it they won't let you in. We had our son and his friend. They were both 20 but needed to have their id checked. They would not let the friend in without getting his mom to send a photo of his passport.

    We have come to see some amazing comedians - they pack the place so that you are almost in someone else's lap. Get there early in that they seat based on when you bought your tickets and when you arrive.

    There are some terrible sight lines but you can hear no matter where you are in the building.

    The food is good and the servers work hard.

    I enjoyed their craft beer and comfortable seating. As for atmosphere, it doesn’t give off any particular vibe, so I think it would appeal to anyone. The beer is reasonably priced. I had the blood orange blonde (Brass Monkey) and it was quite refreshing. They don’t serve food, but I understand that you can order in if you like. It is located in Inglewood, which is a nice area to wander around before or after imbibing in a few beers. It was busy, so it did take some time to get our beer.

    Best lappy I've ever had! Hubby and I came here for a fun time and they didn't let us down. So many tassels and sparkles, I wanted to get up and dance with them. One girl even took the toonie from my lips! Hot, hot, hot!

    If you're into Latin music and dance, check out Rio on a Fri or Sat night. Fridays have the DJ only and Saturdays, the DJ and a very good band. Things usually get started round 10:30 pm, with a friendly crowd, but the dance floor can get tight.

    The food and drinks were good. But even though the place was fairly empty, service was slow. The server dumped our food on our table without even saying anything and in all the wrong places.

    One of my all time favourite places to go to for concerts or even a just a night out. Always have many different events going on so theres something for everyone. I personally recommend Hang the Dj on a Saturday once a month (date is always different). Especialmy if youre into 80's alternative,industrial and\ goth. The staff is always very nice and accomodating. Good selection of drinks,and very clean.

    From Motown to early Rock and Roll, Sunday Afternoon the dance floor is never empty because it really is a party with artists on stage sharing the best of themselves and the best of their music heroes!
    The food and refreshments — even for a non-alcohol soda man like myself — are in the same spirit of big portions of fun worth sharing! My Greek salad (I asked them to hold off the green pepper) was enough for two with lots of take home.
    Sunday fun! Bring friends who like dancing and enjoying live bands in the old Motown tradition.
