If you’re thinking this name sounds familiar, you’re right. Not only has the Ship & Anchor Pub won Best Neighbourhood Pub in 2019, but they have been awarded both Best Late-Night Spot and Best Open Mic Night. Known by the locals as ‘The Ship,’ this neighbourhood pub is a spot for everyone. You’re just as likely to see a group of businessmen as you are a couple of bikers enjoying beers inside the wooden decor or outside on the sunlit patio. A well-known Calgary institution, The Ship welcomes Calgarians from all walks of life to enjoy a couple brews, hearty food and live music on the weekends.

Being named Best Neighbourhood Pub for another year, The Ship does everything right. With reasonable prices, a large patio, a variety of musicians travelling through and a warm atmosphere, everyone feels at home when they walk in the door. Whether you’re having one pint or five, you know that the friendly staff are always there looking after you. The Ship and Anchor is your friendly neighbourhood pub - simple as that.
