Top 10 Calgary Patios

I Love YYC Calgary Coffee GirlTop 10 Calgary Patios

Calgary is known for two seasons: winter and construction. There is also patio season which Calgarians all crave and take advantage of during the dog days of summer.

If you’re looking for an outdoor retreat to drink, schmooze or enjoy al fresco dining then these patios will not disappoint. Here are the top 10 Calgary patios!

National Restaurant 17th Avenue CalgaryNATIONAL

Two locations:

  • 550 17 Avenue SW
  • 341 10 Avenue SW

The original National has a patio that makes the rest of their 17th Avenue neighbours green with envy. It is constantly packed with a continuous line up which is a telltale sign of its popularity.

Then there’s the new National on 10 Avenue. Ping pong, bowling and a secret Bourbon Room … you would think there is enough to do. Wait until their rooftop patio opens up. You won’t see any Calgary patios quite like it!


  • 107 8 Avenue SE

One of the largest Calgary patios, their menu exemplifies al fresco dining at its finest. Try a refreshing California spring salad accompanied with one or two of their famous Bellinis.

17th Avenue Calgary Ship and Anchor PubSHIP AND ANCHOR

  • 534 17 Avenue SW

Only at the Ship and Anchor is where an eclectic crowd of hipsters, artists and young professionals congregate to enjoy a brewsky at one of the wide picnic tables.

Just like their neighbour National, there is always a line up but worth the wait once you reach the Holy Grail. Find out more at 3 Places to Drink and Have Fun in Downtown Calgary.


  • 225 7 Avenue SW

At West it feels more like Miami than Calgary with plenty of cabanas on the perimeter and its gorgeous and breathtaking view of the city, definitely one of our must see Calgary patios!

Indeed, the rooftop terrace also boasts the largest outdoor dance floor to please all the party-goers.

Una Italian Pizza and Wine Restaurant CalgaryUNA PIZZA

  • 618 17 Avenue SW

What more could you ask for than spectacular pizza and an encyclopedic selection of wine? An outdoor patio that feels like a quaint European cafe.

  •  #114, 326 Aspen Glen Landing · SW

An escape from downtown, Redwater Grille is ideal for suburbanites looking for a charming ambiance while staying close to home.

The patio overlooks the fountain in Aspen Landing, super romantic for date night!

Earls West Hills CalgaryEARL’S WESTHILLS

  • 140 Stewart Green SW

It can be challenging to find a restaurant for families in downtown. But this kid-friendly patio offers a retreat for parents to enjoy a meal and nurse a drink while children run around.

Find out more at our Earls Westhills Calgary Restaurant Review.


  • 2435 4 Street SW

At La Boulangerie, you can find a group of girlfriends gossiping, lovers intensely gazing into each others eyes and mommies enjoying downtime.

The tough part is deciding on the multitude of pastries from their chocolate croissants, French tarts and crepes.

Melrose Restaurant 17th Avenue SW CalgaryMELROSE

  • 730 17 Avenue SW

Order their famous fishbowl drink and enjoy the people watching from their linear outdoor patio.

If people watching isn’t your style then gaze at the collection of motorcycles or luxury cars that are usually parked out front.


  • 1428 17 Avenue SW

It’s no surprise that Pint – already located in Edmonton and Vancouver – has finally arrived in Calgary.

The establishment with three floors along with a rooftop patio will provide another option for bar hoppers. And yes, the 40 different flavours of wings is also an attractive feature.
