The best place to get
a beer in Calgary
Ship & Anchor Pub2
Why locals love it
The Ship & Anchor serves up a lively mix of beers, food and people. You will see business men drinking next to skater dudes covered in tattoos. Everybody congregates at the Ship at the start and the end of a good night out and then goes there for brunch the next morning. A Calgary staple since way back.
Why you should visit it
The patio is one of the best people watching spots in the city. It is always busy at the Ship. Some nights there is live music which is almost always free to see. Tuesday nights there is Punk Rock Bingo and you can win fabulous prizes, make sure to tip the bingo caller and you might win a free drink. Have some delicious nachos. Take your date here.
Order the food specials which are always delicious. Show up early on Friday and Saturday nights so you won't have to wait in line.
