“Great 20-something bar with a bowling alley in the basement. If you want 30-something instead, go next door to Craft, which is also good. ”

Mexican Restaurant

“Sexy Tequila Bar, with table-side guacamole and salsa (get these - you won't regret it). High-end tequila's that will make you forget how much you paid for them. Great music, and only a 10 minute walk for the suite. Sunday happy hours are half price drinks and tacos. They have a spicy white-mayo that they will bring you if you order tacos, which i highly recommend. ”

Brewery

“This is my favorite brewery, in the heart of Inglewood, and great place to start a Barley Belt tour. There are so many great local micro-breweries in this area. Search "Barley Belt" on the map on your phone, and you will find lots of great places to drink beer and check out local culture.”

Gastropub

“The jewel of the neighborhood and well known in Calgary. This is a modern, cozy, friendly neighbourhood restaurant and pub with great food and friendly service. They’re known for their delicious pizza and they have a large menu. They have great bands on Fridays and happy hour specials throughout the week. They also have a cute patio that’s great for dining during spring and summer. It’s street- level, so it’s great for people- watching. They also do take out if you want to order and pick up. This spot is just 5 mins from my air B and B. So close. :) ”
