Breakfast and Venue Sponsor: Melrose Bar (formerly Café & Bar)

Melrose is located inside the Cowboys Casino, different yet similar in feel to the previous 17th Ave location one thing remains constant, Melrose’s commitment to community and customer service. With a focus on customer experience Melrose strives to be that place where you can grab a bite to before or after a hockey game, meet up with friends after work or host a birthday or stagette one the weekend. Whatever your need Melrose has something for you.

 

As part of constant innovation and creating social experiences Melrose has opened its doors to the wonderful world of social media. By utilizing tools such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Vine we've been able to connect with our customers in a way that few businesses do. These tools have enabled us to create a sense of community, and have opened up the floor for customers to ask questions, promote, get free product, vent or even make suggestions.
