Top Rated Nightlife in Calgary

Search Radius (Miles)
The Broken City

This popular nightclub and bar hosts the city's up-and-coming bands with live music every night. You can also enjoy great food while you watch the bands performing live; the restaurant opens early to host breakfast and lunch, and is always willing to pour a drink. Choose from an excellent food menu of pub favorites and a spirit list to keep the night rocking. If you're hoping to find the next big band and soak up some local culture at the same time, drop into The Broken City where you're sure to do both.

James Joyce Authentic Irish Pub

A visitor walking through the wide front doors of this revived heritage bank building may quickly feel they've died and gone to Ireland. Patrons of the James Joyce Authentic Irish Pub appreciate the brews on tap (Guinness at three different temperatures and many other ales), as well as the acres of dark wood and utter absence of televisions or loud video game machines. The food includes modestly priced pub fare such as soups, stews and carved meats. For a big snack, try their Irish take on nachos.

Commonwealth Bar & Stage

Nestled in Eau Claire in Calgary, Commonwealth Bar & Stage is a premier nightlife destination for the people residing in Calgary. An old warehouse which was turned into a twin-level night club, it offers an ultimate experience with popular DJs who turn up the heat by playing some heart throbbing tracks. After shaking your leg on the groovy rap, electronic, hip hop and inde rock tunes, one can relish the range of food items served at this venue. The nights are themed with music played both upstairs and downstairs. The ambiance is electric and takes you into a different dimension.

Ranchman's

Consistently voted among the top country clubs in the country, Ranchman's is a south Calgary favorite that has been packing people in for generations, particularly during the wild annual Calgary Stampede. While other clubs purport to be country, this is the real deal, with strapping young men pulling in by truck at night from the ranches that litter the land surrounding Calgary. The rodeo crowd also hangs out here when in town. There's live music in the dance hall section and a DJ in the bar up front, as well as on the outdoor patio. The attached restaurant serves steaks and burgers.

Village Brewery

The brainchild of a few committed friends, the Village Brewery bottles local brews that have gone on to become favorites in bars across the country. Sample their custom creations, namely the Village Blonde, Blacksmith and Wit, at the tap room after taking a tour of the premise. A label that supports local talent, the brewery often hosts events and music schedules where people come to enjoy, among other things, good music and real good ale.

Ship & Anchor Pub

A traditional English pub in the heart of the city, Ship and Anchor attracts a heady mix of clientele from students and professionals to locals and expatriates, and it's not without a good reason. The pub has an excellent roster of live bands, jam sessions, karaoke nights as well as other special events like the Annual Limericks contest and the Music Festival. The amazingly diverse selection of beer including a good number of local brews has something for everyone while the homely food on offer is a satisfying affair. Games are broadcast live on the big screen for sports enthusiasts. For an airier setting, settle down on the breezy patio. Jam sessions draw a host of talent who perform solo or with a backup. Also check out the fun mix of cocktails, hang out and shoot the breeze!
