Post COVID we’re all going to want to do as much as we possibly can, as soon as we possibly can. It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to go to a museum or just for drinks with our friends, so it’s nice to know that there will be one place where we can double up and multitask. Calgary, prepare yourselves for The Dark Arts, an interim gallery and lounge coming soon.

Though the name would suggest that the dress code will be black floor-length capes, sinister accents and sleek bobs, this chic new spot will have nothing to do with witchcraft or wizardry.

Instead, it will feature talented artists, cold drinks, and have a MOD vibe in Calgary’s inner city.

Unfortunately, they’ve chosen to keep things pretty hush-hush, but an Instagram post stating that it’s been “a year in the making” would suggest that they were actually supposed to open in 2020.

With more information expected soon, we cannot wait to see what incredible things they have in store for us. After all, one city can never have too many places to get your drink on.
