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, holiday party or a classic night out!

Our waitress was great.
The song selection was not.
The singers had a limited range and seemed to be out of their range too often.
They never sang one of our tables songs but did seem to sing several obscure songs from other tables.
We went a few years ago and it was much better then.

I would have given a 5 star review if it weren’t for the huge lack of service we received this time around. I’ve been to Aussie Rules 4 times now, and they were all amazing, except this last one. We didn’t get any service for 35 minutes after we arrived. And then when the manager came over to apologize she didn’t offer us anything for the ridiculous amount of waiting we did. And then the odd time we did get served it took far too long, and our server was not at all competent.

Love the atmosphere and the pianos of course, but they really need to step up the service. Would still recommend, but disappointed this time around.

The dualing pianos were excellent , great entertainment, the food was poor quality and the service was slow and not accommodating. I am in the restaurant service industry, so this is a kind but fair review.

Musicians are very talented. They are very crowd orientated and go out of their way to make sure everyone is having fun and gettIng up out of their seats. Is deffinetely a good idea for someone looking for a different change of scenery but still a good time.

Had a great time watching the entertainment. All of the pianists were wonderful and so much fun. The food was decent, although service was very slow and we ended up ordering most drinks from the bar. Drinks seem to be a little over priced, especially shots.

Excellent night out for us! You don’t have to go with a large group - once the pianos start, it’s one big party.
Leticia (Letisha,not sure of spelling) was our server and she was amazing! Definitely going back!

This was our 1st time going for the dueling pianos and not knowing what to expect we were more than pleased with the service ( our server Mellisa was fabulous), the food and then the whole interaction show with the duelling pianos. Next trip back to Calgary from the states we are in attendance

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!!!

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.
