11 Places To Go Out In Calgary Tonight That Aren't Clubs

The club isn't the best place to find a lover...

We've all been there. It's a Friday, and you're in the mood to go out, but not "out" out. You're willing to contour, but not apply fake lashes. You won't put on your best outfit, but you're not going to look homeless either. 

"But where can we go if we're not going to the club?!", you may ask. Don't you fret, Calgary has a super awesome bar scene that's much more laid back than a night at Cowboys or Commonwealth, but still super fun.

Not a drinker? That's okay too! We've included some super fun booze-free options on our list for everyone to enjoy. Next time you're stumped for somewhere to spend your weekend, we've got you:

9. Vin Gogh Paint & Sip Studio // 118-7004 Macleod Trail SE

How frickin' classy? Paint nights seem to be the newest, trendy girls night theme, so why not throw in some wine and food to make it twice as fun?
