The Derrick is an affordable, locally sourced restaurant that features a food menu comprised of traditional classics, seductively smoked meats and a spirit menu with an emphasis on gin, all paired within a cozy atmosphere that should make you feel right at home. The Derrick will be open early for breakfast, corporate lunch and an lively happy hour headlining the areas leading drink specials. So, put your feet up or join the party, welcome to The Derrick! When Alberta’s first oilfield sprang up along Sheep Creek in southwestern Alberta, oil patch communities “growed like topsy.” Since then Calgary has been a boom and bust city but has always conserved a romantically, nostalgic element of its late 1800’s/ early 1900’s, western charm. The Derrick looks to preserve that humble perception by creating a sanctuary for Calgary’s everyday oil-man and corporate community. A place to escape the daily hustle of the office and enjoy a well made drink and hearty food.
