Frenchies is an ambient speakeasy, where intimate is the word. We’re not going to lie, its a tight squeeze on a busy night, but it’s all totally worth it. If you’re lucky to get one of the 15 seats in the bar, you won’t regret the wait. The drinks are fun and inventive, and their food is to die for.

The bar might be small, but its menu is not. Everything is locally made, so you can walk away knowing that you’re a part of the small business movement. Feels good, bruh.

The Frenchie’s Wine Bar fondue is house-made and semi-famous amongst Calgary foodies. Also, it perfectly pairs with a bottle of their organically made wine.

Their dessert menu has just as many options as their food menu, and like their fondue, it is all made in house. Top-notch, people.

Now if you’re wondering if there are any perks to being right behind one of the best pizza places in Calgary, well, of course, there is. You won’t need to go back to the front to get a slice of carb-ey goodness. Chose from four of UNA’s favorites and get it brought right to your table… After all, you probably waited some time for your spot.
