The best nightlife in Calgary can be found in the Uptown 17th Avenue neighborhood. The thriving strip along 17th Avenue between Second and 14th Streets is home to dozens of bars, clubs and pubs catering to clientele ranging from upscale to hipster. There’s really something for everyone, whether you’re seeking a quiet glass of wine and a bit of jazz or a pint of a local microbrew with a live rock ‘n’ roll band. For sophisticated clubbing, try the Mercury Lounge, or chill out at Calgary’s legendary laid-back pub, Ship & Anchor. Late-night noshing options along 17th are plentiful as well.
