A popular East Coast-inspired bar is finally closing its doors on Saturday after a nearly 21-year run.
Located at 510 Heritage Drive SW, the Atlantic Trap & Gill Pub first opened in 1998 as The Newfie Tap & Grill.
- 'The Wizard's Cauldron Bar' is coming to Calgary this November
- Calgary's first-ever Pokémon pop-up bar is coming this September
- City trying out extended hours for Stampede tents this year
The story goes that the BC Liquor laws didn’t allow the word ‘tap’ in their name, so they switched the ‘r’ around from Grill to Tap, and settled on their now-iconic name Trap and Gill.
The popular maritime themed-bar has put up their East Coast memorabilia up for auction so customers can have something to remember the bar by before they close down for good. A full list of their memorabilia can be found on their online bidding platform here.
Customers have the opportunity to get their hands on the bar’s beer taps, fishing nets, poster frames, stools, booth, umbrellas, oars, and even an eclectic mix of life preservers and bathroom signs.
Bidders can come into Atlantic Trap & Gill Pub daily from 11:30 am to 9 pm to check out their auction times. Bidding closes at 9 pm on Saturday, and customers can come in to drink and partake in the auction until the final closing of their doors that night.
