About the restaurant
Prickett Richard is a cocktail bar located in the underbelly of Comery Block Barbecue. You’ll find the entrance in the back alley just off the corner of 17th Avenue and 6th Street SW. Look for the steel door and head inside. You’ll see a kitchen on your left, don’t go in there, just head downstairs and through the wooden clad door straight ahead. Reservations are recommended, but walk-ins are available based on availability.

About the restaurant
Thank you for choosing Añejo as your go-to Mexican restaurant in Calgary. We're located in the 4th Street Rose building, a landmark and anchor of the neighbourhood in the '80s. Our handcrafted recipes are cooked to perfection and inspired from Central Mexico, but with a flair of contemporary flavours. Unwind in our stunning multi-level sky-lit room or dog-friendly patio and enjoy one of our 200+ tequilas or Calgary's best margarita. We're vibrant. We're bold. We're Añejo.

About the restaurant
Lulu Bar is an escape from the ordinary. Its welcoming vibe is reminiscent of hidden gems from your last vacation, only better because it’s right here in your own backyard. With a healthy, Pacific-inspired menu, Lulu’s wood-fired food is light and fresh — but heavy on flavour.
Chef Joseph Sokoloff’s fare is a tribute to the Pacific Ocean and many of the regions that touch it, with influences from Asia to Hawaii, California to British Columbia. Lulu’s fun, light, and refreshing drink menu is equally well-travelled. Its wine, beer, and creative cocktail offerings will make you feel like you’re far from home — and we like that.

We had never been to Mister M before so we did not know what to expect. We were wonderfully greeted upon arrival. Once seated, our server, Lexy knew that it was our first time and we were given a complimentary drink. Lexy was knowledgeable about the menu, attentive, and prompt with service. She had an exceptional smile and made our first Mister M experience outstanding. Lexy was personable, genuine, and very kind. Thank you, Lexy and Mister M for a great "date night".
