  • Hudsons Canadian Tap House
    Hudsons Canadian Tap House serves up traditional pub grub infused with a northern point of view. Appetizers challenge hunger's oppressive rule with options including yam fries ($8) and traditional or boneless chicken wings, bathed in house sauces such as Forty Creek whisky barbecue and 4th Degree ($11 for a single order, $20 for a double). The signature steak sandwich tops a flame-grilled, 7-ounce Certified Angus Beef sirloin with sweet-onion twigs, then clutches it between toasted garlic panini ($10), and the fish 'n' chips ($15) silences any lingering stomach growls by piling hulking slabs of flaky haddock atop golden fries. Though not included in today's deal, patrons can slake their thirst and muster the courage to yodel at an attractive stranger with frosty mugs of beers across Canada, ranging from Alberta's own Alley Kat Aprikat wheat ale to Quebec's St. Ambroise oatmeal stout.

  • Calgary's Best Pubs
    The cherished tradition of the rustic public house remains alive and well at The Kilkenny Irish Pub, where Irish and British fare—along with local pub stables such as burgers and nachos—fuels hours of good-natured revelry. Chandeliers hanging overhead illuminate the knotted patterns on wood-panelled booths as well as the high ceilings of the central dining room. The bar's various nooks betray more than a touch of Old World charm, from the warmth that emanates from a stone fireplace to the antique bicycles pinned to the walls and the steam-powered Big Buck Hunter console in the arcade room. After a short jig across the rugged planks of the hardwood floor, one arrives at a luxurious lacquered bar, whose tenders pour whisky or frosty pints of brew to pair with feasts of shepherd's pie and Yorkshire pudding.

  • Calgary's Best Pubs
    The Seanachie Irish Pub nestles its guests in an elegant cocoon of turn-of-the century luxury, surrounding them with leather-covered furnishings and acres of lacquered wood as they sup on fish 'n' chips, shepherd’s pie and thick lamb burgers. Intricate wood paneling adorns the bar, where guests call out orders for frosty draft beers, ciders, smoky aged whiskys, or the bartender's analysis of Finnegan's Wake. A tucked-away dining room recreates the rustic charm of an Irish countryside kitchen through a rough-hewn stone fireplace and decorations of books and assorted crockery, and an open-air patio hosts guests in search of fresh air and a comforting canopy of umbrellas.
