The crowd at the Ship and Anchor is invariably a mix of people that includes musicians, office workers, university students and soccer fans all enjoying the comfort of a cozy pint. The diversity of clientele speaks to the Ship and Anchor’s reputation as a place where everyone is welcome, and it is a pub that many locals consider their own. This also means it’s busy, so you’ll have lots of opportunity to make new friends.
Eat, drink, and be merry
Long a favoured Calgary watering-hole for those looking to kick back in unpretentious style, the Ship and Anchor offers a wide selection of beers on tap, from local brews to imported fare. The Ship also features a menu that presents traditional pub meals, including fish and chips, nachos and more. The prices are moderate and the portions generous. There are specials every day.
Fresh air and tunes
During the summer months, the Ship and Anchor patio is prime for people watching and is one of the places to be seen by the cruisers on bustling 17th Avenue. Also in-season, the Ship and Anchor comes alive with soccer matches, broadcast from around the world to the large screen television and attended by die-hard local soccer fans. They also have tons of live bands, and DJs come and visit to get the locals up and out of their seats.
Tip: place is popular, so on a weekend, expect a lineup.
