This was an obvious choice for an after-hours list. Once you’ve danced your way out of one of the many 10th Ave bars, you have to head over to CPU. Their pizza slices are huge, greasy, delicious, and best loaded up with ranch and hot sauce.

When: 10 am to 4:30 am – Thursday to Saturday | 10 am to 3:30 pm – Sunday to Wednesday
Where: 555 11 Ave SW, Calgary


If you know, you know. Nothing beats a good Vietnamese sub to soak up all of that nonsense in your system after a night out. Pair your satay chicken sub with a taro bubble tea and you have a meal of champions!

When: 11 am to 1 am
Where: 615 17 Ave SW, Calgary


This shawarma hub is a Calgary classic. The portions served at this late-night resto are incredible, and their sauces are top of the line. To be honest, we’ve never eaten here sober, but we’re pretty sure this is some of the best food we’ve ever had at 3:30 in the morning.

When: 11 am to 4 am
Where: 1423A Kensington Rd NW, Calgary


This is a playground for party animals and late-night snackers alike. Everyone in Calgary knows this spot as THE place for an after-hours bite. The atmosphere here is wild, and the food is primo. Their dumplings and ginger beef are out of control and so is the crowd…. who have been known to dance on the tables.

When: 11 am to 4 am – Thursday to Saturday | 11:30 am to 12 am – Sunday to Wednesday
Where: Unit 101- 555 11 Ave SW, Calgary

“I want falafel,” said every 20-something after a night of drinking. It’s not uncommon for this place to be packed at 3 am. Because of its just-off-17th-Ave location, the Shawarma Knight has become a post-bar hot spot.

When: 11 am to 10 pm – Monday to Thursday | Closed Sunday | 10 am to 3 am – Friday and Saturday
Where: 1512 14 St SW, Calgary

U & ME

Breakfast dim sum? When the sun is coming up and you’re only willing to hit one more spot after the bar, U & Me never disappoints. Check it out!

When: 9 am – 4 am
Where: 233 Centre Street South, Calgary

Cheese. Gravy and Fries – mounds and mounds of fries. If that doesn’t scream post-drink snack, then nothing does. Big Cheese is Calgary’s favourite poutinerie. They’ve got tons of flavour combinations, their fries are perfect, and they’re right on 17th Avenue.

When: 11 am to 9 pm – Monday to Wednesday and Sunday | 11 am to 11 pm – Thursday | 11 am to 3 am – Friday and Saturday
Where: 738 17 Ave SW, Calgary
