There are some great restaurants in Calgary, and one great way to get to know them is through their Happy Hour. With the prices knocked back on beer, wine, and cocktails at some of the city’s most popular spots, it’s not hard to enjoy an earlier evening out without busting your budget. Throw in some fab food specials, and dinner is solved–or at least your appetite is curbed.
