It may have been raining all May Long weekend here in Calgary, but that doesn't mean you won't have plenty of opportunities coming up this summer to sip on some patio drinks! One of the best parts of this city are all the patio options, but of course, a lot of the best ones are usually packed full, especially on a hot summer day!\nIf you're hoping to find a new favourite hangout this summer, here are some of our favourite hidden Calgary patios:\nContainer Bar\nWhere: 1131 Kensington Rd NW\nView this post on Instagram Container bar is lit right now with cute dogs. Come bring your dog and make dog friends and human friends, and just have a good time. @nina.jts @versighh A post shared by Philthy (@chefphilturner) on Jul 14, 2018 at 4:32pm PDT\nContainer Bar is located in the quaint and cozy neighbourhood of Kensington. It's quite literally hidden, located in an actual shipping container! It's dog-friendly, so your furry friend can tag along while you and your crew sip on some drinks and enjoy some tasty food.\nRiver Cafe\nWhere: 25 Prince's Island\nView this post on Instagram 21🥂 A post shared by • Nadia K • (@nadiakanbour) on Jun 5, 2018 at 1:23pm PDT\nIf something a bit more boujee is more your style, the River Cafe in Prince's Island Park is the place to go! It's beautifully lit with twinkly lights, and the location in the park will make you feel as though you've been transported to a hidden forest. It's a great place for a romantic date, or to celebrate a birthday!\nThe Guild\nWhere: 200 8 Ave SW\nView this post on Instagram Everyone and their dog will be joining us on our patio this weekend! Come take advantage of this beautiful weather and enjoy some great food on our amazing patio! A post shared by The Guild (@theguildcalgary) on May 11, 2019 at 12:49pm PDT\nYou've probably walked past The Guild a million times while exploring Stephen Avenue, but have you ever taken the time to sit back and enjoy a few drinks on the patio? It's the prime spot for people watching, and again, dog-friendly! Even if you don't have a pup of your own, it's a great place to spot some.\nVin Room West\nWhere: 8561 8A Ave SW\nView this post on Instagram I feel like it’s been nonstop birthdays this month lol Happy Birthday @mizz_paradise ❤️ love you girl don’t know what I’d do without you! . . . . . . . . . . #happybirthday #birthdaywine #winedate #vino #vinroom #wineflight #loveyougirl #patioweather #patiodrinks #summervibes #rose #winetasting #goodtimes #warmweather #birthday #yyclife #yycliving #yyceats #calgarylife #goodtimes #ilovewine @vinroomyyc A post shared by Liz (@naughtyshrub) on Jul 16, 2018 at 5:55pm PDT\nCalgary's Vin Room West is THE spot for any would be wine connoisseurs to go. Not only is their wine selection killer, but they've also got a great selection of tapas and small plates for you to munch on while you enjoy a glass (or three) of Moscato.\nCannibale\nWhere: 813 1 Ave NE\nView this post on Instagram This is also a barber shop💈 @alcm91 A post shared by m e l i s s a (@mellanli) on Oct 26, 2018 at 5:42pm PDT\nNeed a haircut? They've got that. How about a bite to eat? They've got that too! And a patio to enjoy a few drinks on? They've definitely got that! Cannibale is the perfect place to go for a totally relaxing summer day, right here in YYC!\nPig & Duke\nWhere: 2 locations in Calgary\nView this post on Instagram Wings (and frog legs), nachos and beer - just what you need to get over hump day ... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #yycfood #yyceats #yycliving #yycbites #yyc #foodie #foodstagram #dhyycfood #grubbed #yycfoodie #calgaryfood #buzzfeast #zomato #yycnow#yycadventures #urbanspoon #yycfoodpics #tastycalgary #livelovecalgary #teampixel #wings #beer #nachos #frog #iamdowntown #pigandduke A post shared by Hangry in YYC (@hangryinyyc) on Mar 29, 2017 at 8:23pm PDT\nAmazing food, games, great cocktails, and a perfect patio are all thing that you can find at both Pig & Duke locations. One restaurant is located on 12th Ave, and the other on 4th, so you're never too far from a great meal with friends this summer.\nBonterra Trattoria\nWhere: 1016 8 St SW\nView this post on Instagram Getting nostalgic for Italy, so makes sense to do a little carb loading doesn't it? My favorite arancini and pumpkin ravioli 😋🍝 . . . . #italianeats #pasta #arancini #raviloi #yyceats #foodporn #yycliving #carbloading #winterscoming A post shared by JOYCE (@geekypaddlegirl) on Oct 29, 2018 at 9:29pm PDT\nYou may not be able to afford that trip to Italy QUITE yet, but a day spent on Bonterra Trattoria's beautiful patio terrace might make you feel like you're there (or at least kind of). The spot is known for its awesome Italian cuisine, delectable desserts, and all around friendly service.\nSaltlik Steakhouse\nWhere: 101 8 Ave SW\nView this post on Instagram Celebrate your Mom with us this Sunday! We are featuring a special 3 course lunch and dinner with complimentary prosecco at the door!! Call us to make a reservation! #yyc #saltlikcalgary #iamdowntown #yycfamily #yycbuzz #yyclove A post shared by Saltlik Steakhouse Calgary (@saltlikcalgary) on May 11, 2017 at 11:02am PDT\nIf you don't want to have a BBQ at home, why not spice things up and head out for a fancy dinner at Saltlik? The steakhouse is one of the best you'll find in the city (they've also got a location in Banff if you take a trip to the mountains and are in need of a good meal). Menu items are a bit more expensive, but every review says they're worth every last penny.\nBroken City\nWhere: 613 11 Ave SW\nView this post on Instagram i guess i didn’t get the turn around memo A post shared by Laura Larios-Jones (@lauralariosjones) on Apr 19, 2019 at 2:21pm PDT\nBroken City is known as the spot where hipsters hang out, so if you want to fit in with the hip crowd, you'll definitely want to check it out. Its rooftop patio is a great place to hang out on summer afternoons, and in the evenings they often host events supporting local bands, or just play hip hop music.\nThe Nash\nWhere: 925 11 St SE\nView this post on Instagram meatloaf for breakfast? Ok A post shared by Ali Skalk (@aliskalk) on Aug 9, 2017 at 12:00pm PDT\nBrunch, anyone? The Nash was formerly a hotel in the 1900s, but has since been converted into a trendy restaurant that never disappoints. They're known for their unique twists on Canadian cuisine, and amazing cocktails, of course!\nBlanco Cantina\nWhere: 723 17 Ave SW\nView this post on Instagram accurate representation of me before and after eating 😋 A post shared by Millie Inés (@_millieines) on Aug 21, 2018 at 3:23pm PDT\nIf you're a fan of tequila, you're going to want to pay a visit to Blanco Cantina. It's located right on 17th Ave, as so many of Calgary's trendiest restaurants are. The interior makes for a perfect Instagram shot, and the patio provides you with an awesome spot to catch up with old friends in between tasty tacos and shots.\nOak Tree Tavern\nWhere: 124 10 St NW #2\nView this post on Instagram Our DOG FRIENDLY LOUNGE PATIO WILL BE OPEN IN 60 Min !! @kensingtonyyc @parkerpr @guinnessca @dansgoodside @mikesbloggity @ckuaradio @cjay92rocks @magnerscanada #patio #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dogfriendly #patiobeers #patiotime A post shared by @ oaktreetavern on Mar 19, 2019 at 1:19pm PDT\nOak Tree Tavern is another Kensington favourite. Their menu is full of delicious pub favourites, and even includes plenty of vegan options! The patio is cozy and well shaded, but still provides great views of the neighbourhood around for all your people-watching needs.
