The weather is definitely changing here in Calgary and with that most YPs are susceptible to a little case of spring fever. For those days when the air is warm and the sun is shining bright, there is nothing better than few cold ones on a rooftop patio with friends. The following are our favourite rooftop patios in the city:
Known for its eclectic crowd and live alt-rock shows, this is a great pub perfect for hanging out; especially in the summertime with their rooftop patio. Considering their location it is a great option for casual after-work drinks. 613 - 11th Ave. SW.
For the wine loving YP, Vin Room has a great rooftop. With large umbrellas and comfortable seating it’s hard to not lose track of time. We suggest enjoying a bottle of chilled rose or bubbles and perhaps indulging in some fresh oysters. 2310 - 4th St SW.
