Russian Speakers in Calgary Organisers Birthday Event at Nanta

Nanta Karaoke and Bar

In fact, Friday, May 3rd is my birthday, but clearly this more than a month after that.

Nanta has 619 songs in Russian.

All the signs are on the second floor, so people often walk up and down 6th Street saying, "where the heck's the bar?" There is a door on the East side, to the left of Chinese Village. Open the door, and go up the stairs.
