What happens when you take an old decommissioned fire hall and convert it into a pub? Well, call 911, because that's what some bright sparks did with Calgary's original #3 Fire Hall, turning it into one of Inglewood's trendiest neighborhood “hot” spots. This joint has everything but the fire pole. Designed around the original structure it offers full seating on the main floor and, if you are not afraid of heights, you can relax upstairs on a catwalk that overlooks the bar. The main ceiling is a good thirty feet above the hardwood; and the four other rooms have beautiful balconies overlooking the bar, which has separate areas for dining, drinking, pool and darts.
Vintage firefighting equipment such as axes, coats and ancient pumps line the walls, while a huge ceramic Dalmatian, mascot of all firefighters, guards the bar. The Hose and Hound serves a full course of excellent burgers, steaks and other Canadian foods. So all this on top of pool tables, darts, weekly live rock 'n' roll and jazz, and you could easily set the place on fire. The 100-year old building is said to be haunted by animal ghosts that often make their presence felt.
Menus, brews and more!
The Hose and the Hound is a favourite haunting ground of Inglewood locals and those who like to unwind with a game of pool and a pint of beer. Their menu is also a mouth watering selection of pub fare, from hot appetizers, pastas and salads, all day breakfasts, even burgers and pizzas. And what’s a pub if not for their beer? The Hose and the Hound has 14 different brews. And whether you like pool, darts, or just want to watch sports, the Hose and the Hound have big screen TVs and VLTs for the big boys (and some girls too!) to play with.
