The Charming Location of Rouge Restaurant

Rouge is right next to the Bow River, in the heart of Calgary, only 15 minutes from the airport. The restaurant boasts high-end dining with fresh ingredients in a house that dates back to the 1800s. Between its unique style, amazing food, and casual but polished vibe, the Rouge Restaurant wedding venue has earned its position on the list of the best Calgary wedding venues.

Rouge Restaurant Layout

This classic house is well maintained, keeping it well-preserved and modern but still staying true to its historic roots. The facade and indoors are all authentic, with vintage wood and an almost farmhouse aesthetic.

Indoor and outdoor weddings and receptions are both possible here, and there's a tented patio to combine the two.

Indoor Spaces at the Rouge Restaurant

Inside the house are multiple dining rooms that can feature either small dining stations or long, banquet-style tables.

You can book the entire house and 1-acre yard which can accommodate up to 150 guests. Otherwise, for smaller parties, you can book a few dining rooms or the backyard and outdoor space.

Outdoor Spaces at the Rouge Restaurant

The backyard has a well-groomed but natural look with twisting trees, vines, and fairy lights. This can create a magical, outdoor look, especially in the early evening. One feature that former guests love is the "arch tree," a large tree that forms a beautiful frame over the couple during the ceremony.

Dining tables can be set up on the patio in addition to extra tents in the garden for more cover.

Rouge Restaurant Services Offered

This venue offers standard A/V equipment, lighting, and even a dance floor. They'll handle all the setup and clean-up for you and can take care of all your event decor for you.

The Rouge team has been well-reviewed as a group of chefs, planners, and designers all in one. They'll handle everything for you with professionalism and expert customer service.

Rouge Restaurant Dining

This award-winning restaurant offers gourmet food choices. You'll be involved in the menu design process so you can build a menu that appeals to your needs and dietary restrictions. One of their main selling points is local sources for all their meat, seafood, poultry, and vegetables.

Custom Menus at the Rouge Restaurant

The restaurant will create a custom menu for you, followed by a custom cake. For example, one wedding menu started with a cheese and charcuterie cocktail hour, followed by smoked steelhead trout, prawn cocktails, and a selection of local soups and salads. This was followed by entrees of Alberta lamb sirloin, pacific halibut, seared duck breast, and more.

This meal ended with a custom cake loaded with orchids and fresh fruit, served on a lace-covered cake table.

You can also opt for a low-key cocktail reception with an open or cash bar. A wedding at Rouge Restaurant can also be enhanced by their specialty wine selection and even house wine, perfectly complimenting their food.
