The East Village is on the edge of downtown, and has been master-planned specifically for walkers and bikers. These safe, well-lit streets are lined with enticing urban fare. Lovers of fine coffee can enjoy the famed brews of Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters — a delicious Calgary staple — before grabbing a fresh baked loaf of bread at the Sidewalk Citizen Bakery. Other restaurants include the boutique eatery Charbar and The Brewer’s Apprentice, a tasting space with a focus on Albertan craft beer with 48 taps and a wide range of can and bottles. The East Village Junction is an outdoor pop-up retail area that turns shipping containers into chic shopping experiences, so you’ll be able to shop your heart out in a whole new context.
A strong and irresistible push is happening to make the East Village the core of arts and culture in Calgary. The Studio Bell, home to the National Music Centre, offers five floors of exhibitions and playable music installations, the CKUA radio station, an eclectic collection of musical instruments, performance spaces, and hosts several artists-in-residence. Nearby, slated for completion in November 2018, the New Central Library of Calgary is a cultural and technical marvel that aims to push your idea of what a library can be. This innovative building physically bridges between the downtown core and the East Village. As a resident of the East Village, these exciting cultural amenities — plus everything that downtown Calgary has to offer — will be right outside your front door.
Though this hip community is already full to the brim with enough to keep residents engaged non-stop, the community is still on the upswing. The East Village continues to grow with new residential, retail, and cultural developments planned up to 2020. Now is the perfect time to be part lively contemporary neighbourhood.
