Size doesn’t matter, although the space is tight, it carries style and utilizes every nook and cranny, while still managing to create an open feel. Milk Tiger Lounge reflects a much needed niche in Calgary for a low key, comfortable and classy environment. The mellow atmosphere offers a perfect spot to take in some jazz music, meet up with friends for a chat, or go on your first or your 50th date.
The name is inspired by tiger milk, which was the slang for gin during prohibition in the early 19th century. A close knit friendly and accommodating staff, portray a warm vibe. Just ask your server a question and they are happy to recommend or elaborate on any menu item.

A few selections you’ll find on the menu include, chilled avocado and watercress soup, bite sized Chinese steak tartare on cucumber, spaghetti and meatball on a stick and a variety of cheese, meat and bread platters. Tall and short cocktails and martinis offer patrons a variety of choice to wet the whistle.
