Best of Bridgeland
Bridgeland is one of the oldest and most loved neighbourhoods in Calgary. There’s really a feeling of a tight-knit community there, and honestly, it’s just that cool –because of its history, its businesses and of course, its people. Bridgeland = local in every meaning of the word. Take a look at some of the awesome spots in the neighbourhood living at Alvaro:
Bike and Brew
921 1 Ave NE Calgary, AB T2E 2L3
Bike and Brew is Calgary’s original caffeinated bicycle and repair shop. Serving local coffee (Fratello), baking (Corbeaux) and sandwiches (Peppino), Bike and Brew is a quintessential Bridgeland venture showcasing the best of what YYC has to offer. Plus, you can service your bike, shop for clothing, gear and accessories while you’re grabbing a coffee.
Cannibale Barbershop & Cocktails
813 1 Ave NE, Calgary, AB T2E 0C2
This classic full-service barber shop doubles as a neighbourhood gathering place serving amazing cocktails, fine spirits, craft beer, wine and food. Cannibale is a beautiful room (check out that patio in the summertime) with some great weekly specials (check out our Bridgeland weekly special blog!)
Baya Rica Coffee
204 7a St NE, Calgary, AB T2E 4E8
What do you get when you combine a deep-seated love of coffee, a farm in Costa Rica, an impassioned roaster, and a cozy little yellow house? This isn’t your average Mom & Pop. Owned by Bridgeland locals Joan & Randy Coleman, Baya Rica is a boutique roastery & café in the heart of the community.
Luke’s Drug Mart
