A wicked mineshaft entrance gives way to an open dance floor surrounded by trees, kick-ass sound and projection lighting. Partiers can enjoy the “sauna,” or “campfire” lounges and are encouraged to dance on everything. Banff’s most exciting entertainment venue!

Cheap drinks and great music

Had a great time here, but wish the dancing sasquatch came out on Wednesday when we went out. If you get a chance, check it out. The decor is really neat.

If you are over the age of 21, don't go here. You will not have a good time. The music caters to teenagers, with the DJ playing Skrillex for the majority of the night.

Its a great club space and tons and tons of fun if you get there early enough, but it gets insanely packed by midnight. The drinks are also stupidly expensive for what you get. Staff are fine but nothing outstanding.

Lived in Banff for a year and spent every Sunday in the dancing Sasquatch, staff are friendly, drinks are reasonable (time machines are dangerous), and it is definitely worth the wait to get in. Had so much fun here over the year, would definitely recommend

DJ needs a larger diversity of music, playing thriller 4 times in an hour is not going to cut it. Just because you play variations of the same song throughout the night does not make it enjoyable. Bartenders are great, drinks are reasonably priced. The venue is quite nice. Hmmmm 3 bad reviews back to back......perhaps a change is needed... More

Extremely rude staff. Tried to go here for a Bachlorette party and it was the worst experience I have ever had. Seemed their entire goal was to rip us off. Charged us more for cover and "forgot" to give us tickets for champagne. Told us our previously booked table would now cost $500. Luckily we left and had way more... More

It's a very lively club that plays lots of modern music, has a great sound system and the dance floor is OK. The atmosphere is pretty friendly and it doesn't have the elitest, 'a night at the roxbury' style of pretentiousness that clubs like aurora can portray. This aside, the prices in here are astronomical. A round of three single... More

Very busy and always a good time but paying $15 for cover is ridiculous. That's more expensive than any club in Calgary. The drinks were also extremely expensive, the time machines which are advertised as being $9 were $18.
