Neighborhoods

Inglewood is a great place to walk around, and get a bite to eat. The Nash is a great choice for inventive Canadian food and cocktails. Spolumbo's is a very popular deli that is a great stop for lunch. There are 5 microbreweries in the area, which has been dubbed "The Barley Belt". It's a popular pass time during good weather to rent bikes, and ride from brewery to brewery sampling flights of different beers. Cold Garden is a great place to start, but make sure you are careful not to drink too much and ride.

You will find great restaurants and pubs on 17between 4th and 7th street. Cleaver is a tapas bar, with Irish influence and a great buzz. The beef cheek ravioli is one of the best things I have ever eaten. The Living Room is another great choice for dinner. They are also famous for inventing the "Shaft", a shot made from espresso, Kahlua and milk. If you don't go for dinner, take a quit detour right up to the bar and have a Shaft - you won't regret it! If you want a great pub, both The Ship and Anchor and Rose and Crown are on the same block as these two restaurants. They are always fun. Further down (west) past 6th Avenue, you'll find great, unique shops to explore.

Across the bridge from Eau Claire Market, you will find Princess Island Park, which is a great destination during mild and warm weather. You'll find street performers (weekends), ducks looking for handouts, and a great bike path system. Rent some bikes or scooters, and have a great time in this oasis in the city.

A contemporary Science Centre with lots of hands-on activities and displays. If you have kids, this is a place you will want to check out. It's a short drive/Uber East, or C-train to the Zoo Station (followed by a 1km walk, so beware if your kids like to complain about a walk).

The sight of the 88 Olympic Ski Jumping, and Bobsled/Luge. It's a great place for beginner skiers/snowboarders, since it's not very challenging, and is really close. In the summer, they have Zip-lines, and a Skyline Luge, which is like a down hill gravity powered go-kart (really fun).

Food scene

This is my favorite brewery, in the heart of Inglewood, and great place to start a Barley Belt tour. There are so many great local micro-breweries in this area. Search "Barley Belt" on the map on your phone, and you will find lots of great places to drink beer and check out local culture.

If you're looking for a great steak and a glass of wine, Vintage is a great choice. It's just two blocks west of the condo tower, and an easy walk. Live music on weekends - reservations recommended.

Sexy Tequila Bar, with table-side guacamole and salsa (get these - you won't regret it). High-end tequila's that will make you forget how much you paid for them. Great music, and only a 10 minute walk for the suite. Sunday happy hours are half price drinks and tacos. They have a spicy white-mayo that they will bring you if you order tacos, which i highly recommend.

Grocery store right in the building, with lots of prepared foods and meals that are high quality, without breaking the bank. The second floor of Sunterra has a cafeteria style restaurant (and bar). This is the best value for brunch in Calgary (weekends). The french omelette is very good, and it's only $9. Not a ton of atmosphere in the cafeteria, but great value and and delicious food.

I wouldn't normally recommend a chain restaurant, but this Cactus Club is an exception. Always dependable for quality food and drinks, with one of the best happy hours around (food and drink specials from 3-6). This location always has a great crowd and good music.

Great 20-something bar with a bowling alley in the basement. If you want 30-something instead, go next door to Craft, which is also good.
