A reflection of Alberta's signature hospitality, Rush Ocean Prime's downtown location occupies a large space in what was once Calgary's main post office, a magnificent building modernized. With a new look, new menu, and new attitude, the new Rush relaxes downtown dining with a bold, brash and evolved offer. Rush aims to surprise guests with inventive, globally inspired food from land to sea. Generous portions of steak and seafood are served up alongside sommelier selected wines and handcrafted cocktails. From the attentive service to the open, contemporary space, Rush Ocean Prime sets the stage for memorable every-day encounters – whether it is a coveted spot in the lavish dining room or shared small plates and drinks in the lounge after work.
Rush Restaurant first opened it's doors in September 2008 and was quickly established as a premier upscale dining venue in Calgary. The restaurant won numerous awards over the years including Best New Restaurant in Calgary by Avenue Magazine and 3rd Best New Restaurant in Canada from Enroute. For years Rush captured the hearts of high-end cuisine foodies across the city with its extraordinary menu items and impressive wine selections. Its impeccably designed lush interior and impressive attention to detail in its service also made Rush the ultimate fine dining experience. It was perfect then but with an evolving culinary scene, it was time for a newer, bolder and more brash dining destination. We took what was best from the original Rush, researched what was best for Calgary and most importantly, listened to feedback from customers and now we are excited to present – RUSH OCEAN PRIME.
The renovated bar is the highlight of the new Rush Ocean Prime. The transformed, open-concept lounge can facilitate private functions of up to 250 people or semi-private cocktail areas from 10 – 100. It is also the perfect setting for business lunches, an after work get together or drinks and appetizers before heading to the hockey game.
Rush Ocean Prime features two private dining rooms (PDR) perfect for corporate functions & special events. The large PDR can hold 16 – 36 guests and features a large drop down screen and LCD projector perfect for presentations. The space includes a private entrance with foyer perfect for greeting your guests with a cocktail and appetizers before being seated for dinner. The small PDR accommodates 10 – 16 guests and features a large flat screen TV and hook ups. When combined, Rush Ocean Prime is one of Calgary's only restaurants that can seat up to 50 people in a private setting.
