Enquiries from non-members in regards to corporate events and weddings are welcome.


Executive Chef: Mickaël Cazemayor (France, Maître Rotisseur)
Born in France, Mickaël dedicated his life to the culinary arts when he became a student at the CFA de St-Cyr-sur-Loire, and later became an apprentice at the legendary George Sand, a three-star hotel and restaurant. He finished his time at George Sand with a one-year pastry apprenticeship before immigrating to Canada in 2001 and landing at Manitoba Club.

Executive Sous Chef: David Lawless (Canada)
David Lawless is proof that Winnipeg is a secretive storehouse of international-calibre culinary talent. Another individual who dedicated his life to the culinary arts at a very young age, David worked as the Sous Chef at Breezy Bend Country Club and also worked at St. Charles Country Club and the Fort Garry Hotel before joining the Manitoba Club brigade in 2008.

In 1994, he opened his own pastry shop in Winnipeg, Canada and later worked for highly regarded establishments such as Hecla Resort and McNally Robinson (where he started their bakery department). Manitoba Club is proud to have Éric Bari as our Pastry Chef as he has delighted our members and their guests for well over a decade.
