Prickett Richard

Tucked away underneath a well-known barbecue restaurant on 17th Ave. is Prickett Richard, Calgary’s newest cocktail lounge and brainchild of owners Jared and Aja Kichula. This duo also own Hayden Block, Comery Block, South Block Barbecue & Brewing, Cardinale and Main Street Beer and BBQ in Airdrie. Landon Anholt of FORT Architecture has transformed this former storage space into a swanky, cozy, intimate lounge. This see-and-be-seen spot can be accessed through a large steel door behind the building with no hidden entrances or secret words to gain access. The menu is simple with retro-style snacks and a fun cocktail list including Death on the Installment Plan and A Rainy Night in Soho. In the 1920s, the building was once apartments and the first tenant listed in Apartment 1 read: Prickett, Richard.
