I put my favorites first. I personally love the Modern Steak and One 18 Empire patios. They are both rooftops with excellent views of the downtown and are located right in the action on Stephen Ave. The sunsets are absolutely stunning.
I think this wins for Calgary's most beautiful rooftop patio. Amazing views of the Calgary tower and downtown. Note, it's more expensive to eat/drink here but it's worth it!
Spectacular views from One 18 Empire! This is a hidden gem because the walkway up to it doesn't stand out. For that reason there is always lots of space!
You definitely feel high up at the King Eddy, however, the views are more of the sky and the National Music Centre, not so much of Calgary. Lots of space here.
National on Stephen Ave is a well known party rooftop. Great place to hang in the summer and has NYC vibes. Get ready to dance when the DJ starts up!
This is an extremely popular patio for 20-somethings so expect a wait to go up. It's awesome once you're in though!
Right next to the river, rooftop at Simmons has amazing views of downtown with a refreshing feel. Note there's usually a waitlist for the rooftop!
Chill vibes at this patio in Kensington. Every time I've went it hasn't been that busy.
I don't know about you, but I forget this one exists. A pretty sweet find attached to Chinook Mall.
Another patio I forget about because it's a little bit hidden and not very big. Still a great space on the top of National 10th.
