Cocktails, tapas, and art – sounds like a winning combination, no? This weekend, indulge in all of the above at the brand new Artist Lounge in Calgary, a unique space located inside the Ruberto Ostberg Gallery.

Serving a variety of chef-inspired eats and boozy sips inspired by their featured artists, The A Lounge aims to make the idea of going to an art gallery “less intimidating,” by giving guests something to do with their hands.

“Art galleries can be unapproachable to the general public,” they write on their website. “What better way to do that than to put a cocktail bar inside one to encourage you to come?”

Here, Calgarians will be encouraged to eat, drink and walk around in support of local artists and sculptures – which benefits both the visionary and the attendee!

Really, everyone wins – so if you’d like to check it out, we encourage you to attend their grand opening weekend.

Heck, maybe we’ll see you out there. Enjoy!


When: Grand opening celebration Thursday, May 26th – 28th
Where: 1840 20th Avenue NW, Calgary
