6 Great Rooftop Patios in Calgary

High up sunny spots to enjoy a drink or meal.



The rooftop patio at Brewsters in McKenzie Towne.

 

Brewsters in McKenzie Towne

If you live near McKenzie Towne, you are probably already familiar with the amazingness of this rooftop patio. It's like your living room with televisions and a few couches. It also has heaters and parking close by. Plus you can make reservations specifically for the patio.

 100, 11 McKenzie Towne Ave. S.W., 403-243-2739, brewsters.ca, @wearebrewsters

 

National Beer Garden

This National is the one that is on the top of Scotia Centre downtown. It's big and fun. There is a games area with ping pong up there and kids are allowed until 9 p.m. On Saturdays, it serves brunch until 3 p.m.

225 8 Ave. S.W., 403-237-5556, ntnl.ca, @ntnl8

 

Oak Tree Tavern

This one is not on the roof, but is on deck that cantilevers over a laneway, but we let it squeak into this category because of its elevated views of the skyline. At night it is lit with fairy lights.

124 10 St. N.W., 403-270-3347, oaktreetavern.com, @oaktreeyyc

 

Prohibition Freehouse

As Calgary’s only meatball-focused restaurant, the Prohibition menu is a bit of an oddity. But, situated in the old Molly Malone’s location in Kensington, it also boasts one of the city’s most lively rooftop patios. In addition to the meatballs, Prohibition is home to a hefty beer list to keep the party rolling.

1153 Kensington Cres. N.W., 403-452-8549, prohobar.com

 

Rooftop Bar @ the Simmons

This rooftop patio is the outdoor, adults-only section of charbar with its very own drinks and food menu. There are small plates and thin crust pizzas, but it's the food from the rooftop fire pit that you'll really want to dig into. Get the rooftop burger, build-your-own-taco platter and fire grilled new york steak. There is beer and wine and a cocktail menu that covers the classics and a few originals. Enjoy all of it with views of the downtown skyline and river.

618 Confluence Way S.E., 403-452-3115, rtbsimmons.com

 

Vin Room

This is one of the best places to sit back and enjoy some tapas and a glass of wine. It's up above 4th Street S.W. and it has one of the best menus of wine sold by the glass. 

2310 4 St. S.W., 403-457-5522, vinroom.com, @vinroom
