Sometimes the 9 to 5 life can be a little stressful, so it's always nice to have a little pick-me-up after a long day of work. While most people may have different opinions about getting totally hammered on a work day, sometimes you just need to do what you gotta do to make it through the week. Plus if you invite a couple of coworkers along, you can think of this as company team building ?.

Calgary has an abundance of places to grab a nice and well-deserved after-work drink, no matter what your work schedule is. And you'll never have to miss out on happy hour pricing. Nothing eases a stressed soul like a little alcohol. Here are 7 places you can grab a drink, sit back and relax after your work day.
