This new spot JUST opened up in YYC.

Calgary desperately needed a dance club that also felt like you could have an intimate conversation over food or walk around and mingle. Major Tom offers a New York dining experience, Lulu Bar makes you feel like you’re in Hawaii, and Sweet Loretta is like we’ve been transported back into the ’80s.

Address: 715 11th Avenue SW, Calgary

Where: Sunny Cider Bar — 14th Avenue NE, Calgary
Price: $47 per person, buy here

Sunday Brunch Trivia

A brunch menu filled with eggs benny, mimosas, delicious french toast, and lots of local craft beer is enough for us, but the trivia to go along with it makes it even more fun.
