Part of the adventure is finding the entrance to this Parisian style cocktail bar located somewhere in the historic Devenish Building. To make sure you can make your way through the hidden doorway, you’ll have to remember the password they give you upon making a reservation. This place will transport you into the 1920s Prohibition era as you lounge on a vintage velvet chair with opulent glass chandeliers hanging above you listening to jazz filling the room while you’re sipping on one (or all!) of the fresh gin and tonic creations named after F. Scott Fitzgerald’s works. Small plates and delicious libations—that are sadly not bottomless—are offered also. Telephone: (403) 454-4774
