BIRTHPLACE OF THE
CAESAR COCKTAIL!

Way back in 1969, the management at The Westin Calgary asked their bar manager, Walter Chell, to mix a special cocktail which complimented dishes made with tomatoes and clams for the opening of their new Italian restaurant.

Hours were spent concocting clams into a nectar (no clam cocktail at this time!), and adding just the right amounts of vodka, tomato juice and spices.

 Finally, the “Caesar” was born.

Our 
Story

THE 1960’S ACCLAIMED OWLS NEST RESTAURANT WAS A NOTEWORTHY PLACE TO DINE FOR MANY CALGARIANS!

Under the watchful eye of Chef Fred Zimmerman, the restaurant at the Calgary Inn (now The Westin Calgary) was the quintessential experience in fine dining, known for its delectable food and gracious service.  You could enjoy a rendition of “happy birthday” quietly played by a pianist when served dessert of cherries jubilee. It is still remembered for its post-dinner cigars and roses handed to ladies.
