Aussie Rules opened in the fall of 2002 with the mission of providing the very best entertainment Calgary has to offer. At Aussie Rules, we changed the perception of ‘piano bars’ forever by combining comedic shtick with great party songs that everyone knows and loves. You’ll hear songs you remember from the 60’s to the present, from country to rock and even some of today’s hip hop and R&B hits.

We offer amazing packages to help enhance your evening whether it be a stagette, birthday party or just a night out!

We came here for a birthday celebration. So much fun! The pianists were amazing. and the 90's hiphop near the end was cherry on the cake. We all had a blast and will defenitly be back!
Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make our night such a memorable experience.

We went here for my brother's 30th birthday. We booked a table for 10 people because that's all that we had confirm ahead of time, but when we got there we had 5 more people show up than intended. The staff was very accommodating. They advised us that every table already had reservations, but they did not hesitate to expand our table a bit and add some extra chairs. The staff was excellent, our server in particular was amazing. She made sure that all 15 people at our table never had an empty drink. She was also very personable and called everyone at the table by their name, had tabs sorted appropriately so by the end of the night, there was no confusion as to who owes what on the bill. Overall, this was a great experience and I would recommend this for an outing/group get together.

Food was OK when we got our order finally. The first orders came out totally wrong. Disappointed in that. Very slow with refilling our drinks. The piano bar was excellent. The bearded male piano guy was exceptional. The two girl pianist / singers weren’t that great. Never played our songs even with tip attached ..

I hadn't been to Aussie Rules in many years. I was thrilled to find not only that it hadn't gone downhill but had improved! The service was phenomenal, she remembered our names immediately and was regularly at our tables to ensure we had everything we needed.
The piano players were amazing and played every request we submitted, they played all types not just newer music but older as well.

We will be back soon!!!

We went for my birthday, I had 18 people in our group who had never been, we had one table all together in a great spot and our server was fantastic. Everyond was happy with the food and the sangria was delicious. The music and interaction during the show was so much fun, we all had a great time and can't wait to go back.

They lost our reservation and still had the gull to charge us 26 dollars to sit on bar stools. Total money grab. Go somewhere else.

I made a reservation for my birthday celebrations and I was NOT disappointed. Everyone was amazing, friendly and attentive. Music was outstanding and showmanship was phenomenal. Service was great as well! We were the first ones there and we shut the place down. I know it can be annoying for staff when you’re the last ones there but we never felt like we were an inconvenience, outstanding experience through and through.
Overall an amazing birthday. Thank you so much for making my night so special! I can’t wait to come back!

Any bar that encourages drunk people to dance on their chairs is an epic win in my books. I had no idea. It's a must do for anyone that wants an alternative to karaoke.

I absolutely love this place. I've been many times, and ALWAYS had a blast. I would say it's best with a large group of people but still fun with 4+ as well! The atmosphere is incredible and all the servers I've ever had have been phenomenal. Great place to be if you like belting out your favorite songs.

The only reason I didn't give it a 5/5, is because the drinks aren't as cheap as they should be and cover is 13 dollars as well. The food also isn't superb (just your normal bar food). And to top it all off, their security is very lacking. A random girl walking by my table punched another girl in the face and knocked her out cold. I looked straighter at the bouncer a foot from where this girl was standing and he literally looked at me and then did nothing. Could not believe that there were no staff involved. This isn't something that I've ever seen happen before at this place either, so I understand that they shouldn't really need high security. But alcohol is still being served, so for that reason you should always have some sort of reliable security.

Had a great time with friends there on the night of the piano duel. The service was great. However, the music was a bit too loud even for a live music event night. Other friends concurred on that. I would highly recommend that the volume be adjusted a little so that the customers can enjoy the music but also have a conversation with someone without having to shout. Otherwise, it was a wonderful experience with talented musicians playing.

I ordered the prime rib beef dip and it was really bad. Dry beef, dry bread, the gravy was cold and had gravy skin on it. My husband ordered the ribs which were not too bad.

It is a place for young people, or stagette parties. I was at the one in Las Vegas, and I would wait until another trip to Las Vegas, it was a great experience there. The musicians here were just OK.

Did not enjoy my experience there....

Food was terrible, limp fries, wings were cold and soggy. Server was attentive and paid attention so excellent from that standpoint. Entertainment was just ok. The piano players are good players, not great singers. There was 1 out of the 3 that was really good but the other two were not in the same league.

Overall we had a fun time but we found it a little expensive for what it was especially since we had no idea there was a cover charge. The food was meh, we thought at home everything sounded so good but it just didn't translate to what we actually got. It was also disheartening to see that the pianos were very money hungry. We tipped to hear a song and never got to hear it as they were only really playing songs requests from the 3 large groups. We had fun but wouldn't go again unless we were a party of 6 or more.

There was a $13/per person cover charge even before being seated. The food was ok, I had the prime rib dip which was dry and rather tasteless. The drinks were apparently very good! (I was the designated driver). Our server was very attentive and kept refilling my jug of water. The downside was a few of the bachelorette parties. The ladies were having a good time but made the show about them. I saw a table next to us leave very upset. The performers were making $20+ per song request, which was good as their song choices were not very piano bar friendly. By the time we were set to leave, the guys were getting into the traditional songs that only had $10's and $5's attached.
