East-End Attraction

October 14, 2016

Contender for the trendiest neighbourhood in Calgary, the East Village has a history of music. Highlights of this hot neighbourhood include:
  • Studio Bell: Canada’s newest cultural landmark and home of the National Music Centre is officially open. Towering over the East Village, the state-of-the-art facility celebrates music in Canada with three Canadian music halls of fame, plus an impressive collection of instruments and artifacts spanning more than 450 years.
  • Revitalized St. Patrick’s Island, a 31-acre urban oasis with a picnic grove, natural playground and fishing cove.
  • The historic Simmons Building has been restored, and now houses Charbar (contender for enRoute magazine’s best new Canadian restaurant), a hyperlocal bakery, Sidewalk Citizen, plus local coffee roaster Phil & Sebastian.
  • Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites, a dual branded hotel set to open Oct. 30 with Alt Hotel Calgary, a Le Germain property, opening in 2018.
