Where to Eat, Stay and Explore in Calgary

Make the most of your stay with a visit to one of the country's best book shops, a stay at a boutique hotel with a rock 'n' roll past and more.

Shop

Shelf Life Books

Shelf Life Books

Don’t judge the book(store) by its cover: Shelf Life’s ordinary decor disguises extraordinary contents. This might be the best bookshop in the country, bursting with kids’ books, poetry, translations and the fruits of its staff’s consummate, curious taste.

Eat & Drink

Ten Foot Henry

Ten Foot Henry

At this revelation of a vegetable-forward restaurant, plates of subtle tuna crudo and pickled cantaloupe jostle with zesty gai lan and a briny Caesar salad splashed with tangy cashew dressing. With a luminous Hemingway cocktail in hand and vintage funk wafting up through the rafters, it’s like a perpetual Saturday night.

Cold Garden

Cold Garden

Looming over the tracks, one of Alberta’s youngest craft breweries is also the coziest concrete hangar you’ve ever seen. Sample a delicious saison (or their vanilla-kissed Cakeface IPA) in a room festooned with silk flowers and rainbow-coloured pool noodles.

Hotel Arts

Hotel Arts

Built on the site of the legendary Westward Club, this boutique hotel is filled with accent lighting and statement art pieces. Listen closely, and you can still hear the applause from Nirvana’s first Calgary show.

What we loved The hotel’s playful community interactions, including Death Star waffles in honour of a pop culture convention.
