Private Events

A Brief Introduction

We’re not a restaurant, we are a “pop-up” food adventure team who offer personalized private events at our location, your location, or other unique private venues that we have access to.

Each event we plan is NEVER the same twice, and the food is always personally prepared by a private chef. The beverages are personally selected and paired, and we’re always happy to work with you to entertain any specific requests that you may have.

If you’re asking us to put together an event for you and your guests, we will happily customize any one of our services to help give you or your guests an experience you’ll never forget.

Private Events Experimental Tastings Wine Whisky Whiskey Calgary Alberta The Owl VIP

Private Experimental Tastings

…and NO… we don’t mean “Experiential” Tastings, we fully mean “Experimental”…

Let’s take something delicious like a lightly sweet vanilla bean crème brûlée, how does it pair with something like a raspberry framboise? How about a late harvest Pino Gris, or an Irish Whiskey aged in cognac casks?

How about a brisket burger combined with smoked meat, how does it pair with a cabernet merlot wine from the old world? How does that compare to a wine in the new world? What about a locally made Ontario Craft Cider, or an 18 year old single malt Scotch whisky that is lightly smokey?

Private Lunches & Dinners

Food is fabulous at any time, and our private events can be scheduled anytime during the day – although, if we’re being honest here – Dan really isn’t a morning person, so doing a breakfast event (unless it involves whisky maple syrup) probably isn’t a good idea.

Our ideal timeline for private events run between 11am and 11pm – perfect for brunch, lunch, afternoon delight, supper, or evening event.

Private Special Events

Want to take your client appreciation experience to the next level? Need some unique ideas for a team building experience – that isn’t axe throwing, bowling, or escape room based?

Perhaps you’ve already got a major event already planned, and you need something special for those particular VIP clients.

We can provide you and your business associates with a private, educational, fun, formal or informal experience, that will up the “WOW” factor in your business.

Going on a trip to Norfolk County, Niagara Falls, Kentucky, Tennessee, France, Germany, Ireland or Scotland? Let us give you a little education, before you go!

Private Game Nights

Think of us as a very unique event planner! We create our own events in our location (ie. Summer Harvest Tables), or can build your personal private event suited to your family, friends, or coworkers.

Got family coming for the weekend, and you’d like to host a BBQ Pitmaster night? How about girls / guys / couples night out? A special anniversary or romantic dinner? Or, for something completely different – how about line dancing, curling, learn to cook, cards against humanity, trivial pursuit, or other fun night?

The Owl VIP Private Events Your Wine Whisky Food Pairing Location Intimate Calgary Alberta

Your Location

For personal private adventures, and corporate events, we are a “pop up” adventure company, so we most certainly can come to you!

If you’d like us to come to your home, cottage, friends house, or back yard, we’re more than happy to create something unique.

If you’ve already got an event location in the works, or an event that’s already in progress, we can easily work together as an add-on experience.

Private Locations

Looking for something unique, but aren’t sure where to go? Looking for something small – how about we go to an old century school house, that’s been converted into a private event location? Need bigger – how about a hideaway cottage in the deep woods up north? We’ve got lots of ideas and locations to pull from, so let’s work together to make something unique.
