What’s better than gorgeous decor, cheap drinks, and cheap eats? Puppies, but that’s about it honestly. For the Curiocity Calgary Happy Hour of the Week, we’ve got all of the above! Minus the puppies, unfortunately. Now that would be a restaurant concept…

We’re at Two Penny Chinese, downtown’s top pick for delicious Chinese food. The Shanghai Art Deco theme doesn’t hurt at all, either. We want to know who their decor person is, because we need them in our lives and in our house.

How does fried rice and a cocktail sound? Pretty decent? Perfect, let’s get down to happy hour business.

Soo, yeah. Chinese food this tasty will always have a place in our hearts, but Two Penny’s Shanghai-inspired decor should also have a place on your Instagram feeds. Pop a squat, happy hour it up, and chill at this gorgeous hideaway.

It’s high-key one of Calgary’s most beautiful restaurants… And with pork buns, cocktails, salt & pepper squid, we can almost forgive the utter lack of puppies. Time for happy hour!
