Elephant & Castle Pub to Open in Historic Rose & Crown Building

Elephant & Castle will give Calgarians a chance to “Get their Brit On” as the British pub chain opens in an iconic location.

Elephant & Castle, the renowned British-inspired pub chain, is opening a new location later this summer at the historic site of the former Rose & Crown pub in Calgary. The pub will bring the rich tradition of British pub culture and a vibrant love for soccer (or football for real fans) to Calgary’s vibrant and diverse restaurant and pub scene, while offering a new late-night 17th Avenue option. 

A unique blend of British culture and fare 

The Elephant & Castle pub will offer a wide selection of local and imported beers and traditional British-inspired fare and bar snacks, such as shared plates, meat pies, Sunday Roast and more. As a destination pub, Elephant & Castle has been long known for its comfortable and warm hospitality and great atmosphere. During the day, watch the world’s best sports matches, and in the evening, the pub will be a great venue for a lively late night out.

Where tradition meets history

Located just off 17th Avenue and 4th Street Southwest, near Calgary’s new Culture + Entertainment district and planned sports event centre, the highly anticipated new pub and late-night hot spot is poised to become a welcome and vibrant part of the community. The building will have a fresh look and feel while staying committed to the architectural integrity and historical significance of the space. 

Football lives here

Elephant & Castle will be a welcoming spot for passionate fans, lively crowds and a taste of British culture. Dedicated to becoming a go-to destination for all types of sports fans, the pub will broadcast football games from the world’s biggest sports leagues, including the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and the Canadian Premier League. As Calgary’s unofficial home of soccer, Elephant & Castle also plans to air games from the new Canadian women’s league, the Northern Super League. Pop in for a bite to eat and a pint in a casual atmosphere during the day, or make the pub your evening nightlife destination, enjoying a late-night happy hour in a lively and iconic setting.

Elephant & Castle currently has locations throughout Canada and the United States, giving patrons access to top-tier international sports, British-inspired hospitality and unbeatable nightlife culture. 

Calgary’s Elephant & Castle on 4th Street plans to officially open its doors in late summer 2024, pending renovation timelines. To learn more, visit elephantcastle.com or @elephantcastle on Instagram or @elephant&castle on Facebook.
