We could all use a vacation, but travelling the world still feels a lot like gambling. Luckily, the folks at Calgary’s Hotel Arts have thrown us a bone; announcing an event that will practically transport you to the beach clubs of Vegas where guests can warm up on the poolside, drink in hand.

Starting this Friday, and held every Friday between 6 and 9 pm, Hotel Arts will be hosting their Winter Warm-up event, in participation with the city-wide Chinook Blast festival.

Featuring DJ Mikey Da Roza, this summer-like series will be the event of the year, especially when outside is exceptionally chilly and familiarly covered in snow.

This event will be on a first come first serve basis for non-hotel stayers but will be free to attend (with purchase of food and drink) and unlike anything else in the city.

We would, however, recommend booking a room directly through the front desk to ensure availability (as this event has been fairly popular and fills up fast.)

Please note that there is limited availability for non-hotel guests and tables will have a 2-hour time limit so plan accordingly and consider arriving early!


When: Friday, February 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th
Where: 119 12 Ave SW Calgary, AB
Time: 6 pm – 9 pm
Cost: Free with purchase of food and drink
