MOLLY MALONE'S IRISH PUB

There’s something luxurious about mingling on a rooftop patio, and Molly Malone’s Irish Pub in trendy Kensington delivers.

BROKEN CITY

Broken City is a hotspot for rooftop libations in the heart of Calgary’s Design District. An absolute must visit for indie music lovers, Broken City also features a full bar on the roof for quick service, plenty of seating for groups of all sizes and funky, graffiti-style art on the walls.

LOS CHILITOS TACO & TEQUILA HOUSE
