A lounge with a fantastic city view, MARKETbar is located on the third floor of specialty grocer Sunterra Market Keynote. The bar’s Canadian-cuisine food is particularly good, and features thin-crust pizzas, a mean Guinness bison burger, cheese and charcuterie boards, salads and more.

Hi Fi Club

219 10 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2R 0A4

After the game, if you want to dance to the hottest DJs or alternative bands, head to The Hifi Club.

Proof Cocktail Bar

1302 1 St Sw, Calgary, AB T2R 0V7

This First Street Southwest cocktail bar is run by the people behind Vine Arts Wine & Spirits, and Proof’s cocktails are just as well selected as the shop’s wines. With 300 cocktail-mixable spirits available, there’s no stumping the bartender. In the glow of its towering backbar, also enjoy a tidy and changing menu of small-plate dishes.

Hop In Brew Pub

213 12 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2R 0G9

Visiting the Hop In Brew is like attending a low-key house party, which is appropriate, considering this two-storey pub was formerly a residential home. It is a perfect place to have a conversation with friends or even meet new ones. A tip: Don’t leave without trying a selection from the pizza menu.
