When you're wedding planning, date nights tend to veer towards one topic of conversation - you guessed it, wedding planning. Whether it's casually reminding each other about upcoming appointments or debating the merits of inviting children under 12, wedding planning chatter can swiftly take over an evening. The best way to combat this? To go somewhere entirely new and exciting.
But where to go? Calgary is one of the hottest culinary scenes in North America, how can you possibly choose which resturant to hit up? Let the old addage "Something Old, Something New" steer you in the right direction - today, we're sharing 4 hot Concorde Group properties that will liven up your date night and give you something fresh to talk about!
Something Old - Sky 360
Iconic and breathtaking, Sky 360 has been a Calgary landmark for over 40 years. With a modern, dynamic menu and views that to put it fairly, you just can't get anywhere else, there's a reason it's one of Calgary's most exciting wedding venues. With awe-inspiring ambiance that transitions from day to night, your guests will feel as elated as you do on your wedding day.
Something New - Bridgette
Bridgette is one of those Calgary wedding venues that when you walk in, you don't even feel like you're in #yyc anymore. Located in the Design District, Bridgette embraces mid-century model design and aesthetic, perfect for those bohemian brides who are looking for a space that's totally different. A chef-driven menu, with plates built specifically for sharing, Bridgette makes an awesome space for a bridal shower or a stagette stop as well!
Something Borrowed - Anju
If you haven't been to Anju, seriously - I'm not sure what you're waiting for. Originally located off the beaten track on the west side of Calgary, Concorde Group borrowed it and it's moved the restaurant to a great new location right on the corner of 4th Street and 17th Avenue. With a menu that's put a seriously delicious twist on Korean food, it's a casual and relaxed space that meant to bring people, food and drink together.
Something Blue - Ricardo's
Calgary's tropical hideaway - we bet you didn't know we even have one, did you? To make it to Ricardo's, you've got to swing around the corner from National 17th, and you'll find Calgary's hottest rum bar, with over 100 kinds of rum from around the world, plus a host of specialty cocktails and a menu inspired by island food and island life. Brightly coloured decor and a lively atmosphere means there's never a dull moment at Ricardo's, the perfect pit stop!
