Welcome to JINBAR. Our place for a “few” drinks and where to find some great food. Catch up with your friends, relax after a long day at work, impress a date or whatever mood you’re in.
The meaning of Jin is “true” in Korean. The inspiration for the JINBAR comes from Jinhee’s childhood memories of her dad coming home with fried chicken and ice cream every payday, which is monthly in Korea. For Jinhee, fried chicken and pizza are the ultimate comfort food, and JINBAR is her way of bringing the same comfort and happiness to Calgary’s people!
Our Décor is minimalistic added into our 105-year-old heritage building. Our open kitchen and pizza bar ensure we are not keeping any secrets. We strive to use true ingredients to create true flavours and provide you with a true experience!
Jinhee Lee graduated from the Calgary’s SAIT Professional Cooking Program.
Her accolades include winning The Canadian Gold Medal Plates, the Canadian Culinary Championship, and the PEI Chef Challenge. A season 6 finalist on Top Chef Canada and most recently participated as a chef and judge on Wall of Chefs.
At JINBAR, everything revolves around showcasing our high quality, Korea-inspired food. Our carefully selected drink menu is designed to complement our complex flavour profiles.
