Before sports bars, the only place to view eight games simultaneously was inside the brain of a spider. Achieve octovision with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare at The Garage.
One of Calgary’s only downtown billiards and sports venues, The Garage boasts a hearty and eclectic menu of pub-style favourites, plus an expansive beer list and an array of televised and table-oriented sports. Build up stamina for a postdinner dart game with a pound of crispy chicken wings ($12), a juicy steak sandwich on toasted potato-rosemary bread ($12), or poutine wedge fries covered in gravy and cheese to replicate the potato’s natural growing conditions ($7). Lend your peripheral vision to one of The Garage’s more than 20 televisions while dipping golden-brown fish 'n' chips into rich tartar sauce ($13) or munching on a thin-crust Ultra Meat pizza loaded with grilled chicken, ground prime rib, maple bacon, and Spolumbo's hot italian sausage ($21).
The Garage is a breath of rowdy air for athletics enthusiasts, with high-definition plasma televisions frequently playing host to NHL, CFL, UFC, MLB, and World Soccer matchups. Sip a 20-ounce draft ($6.25–$7.75) or bottled ($5.75–$6.75) beer from the bar’s lengthy drink menu before challenging a random stranger to a game of billiards, foosball, or a good old-fashioned staring contest. Pool prices vary by day and start at $9.90 plus GST per hour.
