South Calgary’s first tapas restaurant, Next Door Wine Bar – conveniently located at the corner of Heritage Drive on Macleod Trail – began with a passion for wine and a desire to spend time with great company. Hektor Askushaj’s love for Mediterranean food also had a little something to do with it.
As the owner of Toscana Italian Grill, located conveniently right next door, Hektor saw the need for a more casual setting where friends could sit back, relax and still enjoy delicious food. His passion for sharing outstanding food with Calgarians is apparent in every dish.
Experience comforting cuisines ranging from small plates, to sharable portions, and modern decor paralleled to an intimate ambiance. Our staff will help you find the perfect wine to pair with any of our mouth-watering dishes. All ingredients are locally sourced, and our wine list features vintages from all over the world.
The intimate setting makes Next Door Wine Bar the perfect place to host your next corporate event, bachelor or bachelorette party, or just get out for a visit with good friends. Whatever the occasion, Next Door will make your experience a memorable one.
Do you need more space for your event? In addition to our space at the wine bar, which holds up to 90 guests, we can accommodate 2 semi-private areas seating up to 45 each. Furthermore, we also have the option of hosting your party right next door at Toscana Italian Grill. At Toscana, we can seat up to 150 people including two semi-private areas as well as a lounge area for more casual events.
