Best Local Secret: Betty Lou's Library


Calgary’s newest cocktail bar can only be entered through a secret entrance and their website offers no clues. Your best bet is to head there with someone who knows where to go once you enter the Devenish building on 17th Ave. The 1920’s inspired space will make you feel like you’ve gone back in time to the prohibition era; sparkling chandeliers, cozy velvet couches and jazz music play up this Parisian-vibe space.

Their cocktail menu has been carefully crafted, a mix of sophisticated libations that will have you tapping your feet to the jazz music in no time. You can also order small plates to share as well as a handful of local craft beers and wine.

Location: 908 17th Avenue S.W. The Devenish Building Calgary, AB
