If a gym, an arcade, and a bar could somehow all combine, then this place in Calgary would be the amazing product. It's a bar and restaurant where you can play basketball, skeeball, connect four, arcade games, and more, all the while throwing back a few Buds with the buds.
Sound like your kind of place?
The whole atmosphere of the place is second to none, and will definitely make you nostalgic for your high school days. They used reclaimed gym flooring for the floors which add so much character to the place, the washrooms are like locker rooms, and everything inside the place is sports themed.
It also just has the coolest vibe inside. With stringed lights overhead and sports antiques littered around the place, it's unlike any other YYC sports bar.
Did I mention they also have a LIT patio? Not your average patio either, this patio has a designated section to play cornhole and ladder golf. You can soak up the sun, hydrate yourself with beer (or at least pretend that's how it works), and challenge your friends to a friendly game all at once! Regular patios are SO last season...
One of the best parts of the place is its location. Right on 17th, you can spend your night wandering the strip after you're done! The place is called Home & Away, and it's your next destination for a place to watch the game - or play the game - with friends. They're located at 331 17 Ave SW.
