What to do in Calgary


What to do in Calgary

Restaurant / Jan 18, 2019

Godzilla Grub

The vibe is punk rock, but the “Japanese-ish” cuisine is casually serious. Gorilla Whale doesn’t take reservations, so arrive early for mango sake bomb cocktails, foie gras wagyu burgers, and incredibly tender confit pork belly yakitori grilled over binchotan charcoal.

Music Monarch

A Calgary institution, the King Eddy is back to its former glory. Once the King Edward Hotel and now part of the National Music Centre, head here for live music, quirky patrons, Southern inspired eats, and a mix tape of old and new cultures.

Design on Denim

Your destination for all things denim, Dutil sports a solid selection of cult faves, designer jeans, and Canadian-made classics. Also offered: alteration, repair, and recycling.

Speakeasy Vibes

Steps away from Le Germain Hotel Calgary, Bar Von Der Fels is an intimate 28-seat wine bar with a speakeasy vibe. Pouring hard-to-find wines by the glass, the kitchen serves French and Italian classics until midnight.

That's Amore!

Its house-made pasta and four-hour happy hour may be crush-worthy, but it’s the brunch menu at this Oliver & Bonacini eatery you’ll fall in love with. Try the lavender pancakes or opt for a cheesy breakfast calzone washed down with mimosas.

Happy discoceries!
