Inglewood’s main drag — 9 Ave SE — was once the city’s original downtown thoroughfare. Now just across the Elbow River from the current city centre, it has retained much of its Old Calgary charm. The neighbourhood has become a home décor and antiques mecca that’s more recently known for its fine dining and entertainment spots.
This relatively small area is chock-a-block with home décor and antique shops. Inglewood’s numerous historic buildings house several of the city’s top restaurants including Rouge, winner of the Pellegrino World’s Best Restaurants 2010 Award. For more populist fare, there’s dining at Sugo's or Without Papers Pizza.
Located in the historic Gary Theatre, Ironwood Stage and Grill is one of Western Canada’s premier live country, folk and blues performance venues.
