Take it back to the beginning



Welcome to Confederation Cafe and Cocktail Bar.  What we do is simple; we cook a good meal and make a great drink.  Created out of a collaboration between local barman Nathan Head (Milk Tiger, Proof) and restaurateur Witold Twardowski (Mescalero, Crazyhorse) as a nod to the origins of the dining scene in Calgary.  We serve the best local stuff we can find, as often as possible, behind the bar and in the kitchen.  We couldn't help but fall back in love with Canadian Whiskey being located in the historic Grain Exchange building.  It's tough not to. 

We accept reservations for our Cafe (upstairs) during open hours.  Our Cocktail Bar downstairs is first come, first served.  If you are interested in hosting 10+ guests please email us at
