West Beach Promenade

This lovely, paved pathway surrounding Mahogany Lake is perfect for walking, or biking, or whatever activity suits your fancy. The tree-lined paths are well-maintained year-round, and there are plenty of benches for resting, and people- and dog-watching, while you absorb the ambience and work up an appetite to dine at one of the many nearby restaurants.

 

Diner Deluxe

The Mahogany location of this Calgary brunch institution offers the same delicious comfort dishes, such as meatloaf hash with poached eggs and hollandaise, as the original. Open 8 a.m. ’til 3 p.m., seven days a week, Diner Deluxe doesn’t take reservations, but don’t worry, it’s worth the wait. Especially for the breakfast cocktails!

 

Made Local Marketplace

This independent retailer sells a wonderfully curated collection of gifts, household items and other curiosities. The merchandise is sourced from local artisans and crafters — think jewellery, wall art, plants, candles, glassware and yummy treats. No matter who you are shopping for, you’ll almost certainly find the right thing.

 

Alvin’s Jazz Club

You might think the best place for jazz is in some seedy downtown club. But you’re wrong: Alvin’s offers authentic, live jazz six days a week, including a jazzy Sunday brunch. The swank environment has a menu to match, featuring modern, upscale à la carte dishes as well as a three-course tasting menu. Reservations are encouraged.

 

ChargePoint Electric Vehicle Charging Station

If you drive an electric vehicle, you’ve no doubt experienced range anxiety. So, EV owners will appreciate the two Level 2 chargers here that let you replenish your battery while you explore the shops and other sights in the neighbourhood.
