I had never been to the Aussie Rules Piano Bar before but joined a group of girlfriends recently for a night out. There is an huge, amazing mural on the wall featuring different musical artists which is fantastic! Two pianos and a drum kit sit...underneath the mural on a raised stage and there are tables in front of that with another raised area that features booths. We chose a booth for the six of us and had a great view of the stage. We each ordered wine or beer (I had a Fitzsimmons "Outdoor Rink" Cream Ale for $7.15) and then some appies that we all shared. Those were boneless ribs, pickle fries and mini perogies. All were decent and the pickle fries had a nice little bite to them! The server we had was very good and informative. The ladies washroom was very clean. The dueling piano show was awesome! There were three guys that evening who rotated between the pianos and also took song requests from the audience who submitted many. The performances were really fabulous; they are very talented musicians! I could've stayed all night listening to the music! I definitely want to go back and take my husband.More

Heard so many good things about AussieRules we booked a Thursday night with friends. We arrived about 6:45 for some appies. Deep fried pickles were soon at our chairs and equally quick were they gone. We ordered beef dip and a burger for the main...meal. Each was good but nothing above average. It is the duelling pianos that really makes the evening so much fun. The three players just kept the crowd on the feet, in the aisles, on the stage and standing on their chairs. Such a wonderful talent each of them have. They are witty, professional, entertaining and a little bit of a showman. Loved the evening. If you want something a little different than the usual Friday night this can be a lot of fun. Choose friends to attend along with you and it can get crazy.More

Be prepared for congestion, slower than average bar service, and Piano repertoire that gets repetitive. Fun the first 1 or 2 times, however, the ambiance begins to pale.

This is a fantastic night out especially with a big group. The piano player do a great job getting everyone in the bar involved. It’s definitely on the pricer side of a night of but definitely worth it to mix up your nights out.

Went there last night for a 30th birthday party...private function! Family and friends of all ages! The three entertainers were so awesome! If they didnt know the requested songs they took a break and came back singing and playing and were absolutely perfect! They played...all genres...cant say enough! We ordered food which came within 5 minutes every time and it was awesome too! So, so, so entertaining! Great evening! The one waitress worked so hard she was often seen literally running! Awesome girl! Great service, great fun, great entertainment! Go if you get a chance!More

My friend and I decided we wanted to have a night out without any Mommying, which meant a bar. Aussie Rules was the perfect place for a couple of women who are 14 years apart, high energy and wanted to stay true to their partners....The mix of music was great, the banter between piano players was fun, food was delicious and the dealcoholized drink options were varied.More

This is a piano bar. But no ordinary piano bar. It is high intensity over the top fun. Three musicians of incredible skill and charisma take requests for greatest hits spanning decades and the crowd joins in raucous singing and (standing on chairs) dancing. I...was amazed by these folks. Service and food were also very good, but the show is something you must not miss. Awesome.More

If you like music and a fun place to change the scenery from the typical night out - then this is the place for you. I attached pictures of the food menu. The food choices, quality and prices are out of wack. The food is...not good at all , really. The nachos are weak, burger was OK, but the spinach dip was probably the best. The beer menu is very basic unfortunately especially with all the local beer now produced in Calgary. This could be one the best places in Calgary if they just invested in the quality of it. Service is always great here.More

Aussie Rules is in the same building as a dinner theatre restaurant, and has a separate interior entrance. We stopped in here to see the Duelling Pianos routine after seeing a show at the adjacent theatre. The bar is surprisingly large with a stage and...lots of tables for seating. Prices are reasonable for food and drinks, although we did not try any of the food since we were coming from dinner. The servers were friendly and checked on us regularly to ensure everything was fine.More
