Murrieta's Bar & Grill is hailed as one of Calgary's most celebrated and sumptuous places to dine.
Situated within the spectacularly renovated walls of the Alberta Hotel building (c.1890) we offer a feast not only for the senses... but for the soul as well, with something unique to offer every distinctive palate.

The cuisine at Murrieta's can be described as West Coast with a large selection of seafood, steak, game, and pasta.
The extensive wine list compliments this theme with a strong focus on Pacific Rim wines, although great wines from the Old World and other regions can be found.

On Friday and Saturday nights we showcase live bands from 10:00pm to 1:00am. Musical styles range from R&B and Funk to Classic Rock and Jazz.
