Oliver & Bonacini Restaurants and INK Entertainment are planning a large food and lounge concept at Hudson’s Bay’s flagship Stephen Ave. location, located on the southwest corner of the historical building. The plans for the space will be developed in two phases.
Phase one will be completed in the late spring of 2014 and will consist of a 7,500-square-foot restaurant featuring an outdoor dining patio that will likely be the largest in the city and a 4,000 square foot lounge.
Phase Two (set for completion in fall of 2014) is a 20,000-square-foot, loft style event venue on the sixth floor of the building. Future plans will see the venue expanding across the entire sixth floor, doubling the space and creating a stunning venue for galas, weddings and corporate events.
Today also marks the 100 anniversary of Hudson’s Bay’s Downtown Calgary location, exclusive offers, prizes and entertainment runs throughout the day.
