Food & Drink Partners
LUGO always features the city’s best restaurants, serving delicious food and drinks all night. This year we’re happy to welcome Hearth, House of Hakka, The Night Oven, Odd Couple, and POP Wine Bar.
Hearth is a celebration of Saskatchewan, focusing its menu around locally grown and foraged ingredients. A local favourite since opening in 2018, they made the Best Restaurants in Canada list last year, one of only two Saskatoon restaurants to make the list. Along with canapes, Hearth will offer a Zero Proof bar with non-alcoholic cocktail options.
House of Hakka is distinctively unique; a fusion of two of the most popular cuisines worldwide – Indian and Chinese. During their migrations, some people of the Hakka tribe ended up in Calcutta, India, resulting in Chinese styles of cooking combined with Indian herbs and spices. Their unique ingredients tossed in the wok always result in fresh, flavourful, and soul-satisfying dishes.
The Night Oven is a small bakery in Saskatoon that hand-crafts rustic French-inspired baking with a commitment to sourcing organic ingredients where possible, while prioritizing local suppliers to showcase what Saskatchewan has to offer. They deeply respect the traditional craft of baking and are passionate about creating good food from scratch.
Odd Couple is family owned and operated by the Yuen family. Since immigrating to Saskatchewan from Hong Kong in 1996, the Yuen’s have been closely tied to the Chinese-Canadian restaurant business in several communities across the province. Odd Couple was born out of the desire to recreate Canadian-Asian favourites in a fun, thoughtful expression of the union between East and West.
From the people who brought you The Hollows and Primal comes POP Wine Bar, a wine bar in the Paris of the Prairies. POP serves up natural wine, charcuterie, cheese, oysters and more! Located in Riversdale, POP is a gem you won’t want to miss.

Be part of the art! You’ll find a themed photo booth and opportunities to explore your creativity throughout the museum.

In the Connect Gallery, find Dawna Rose and Betsy Rosenwald’s Journal of the Plague Year(s), and make your own sign to be added to the wall. This is of one your last chances to take part in this irreverent and interactive exhibition before it closes on March 5.
