Description: One good taste deserves another. Hotel Arts features two award-winning restaurants, Raw Bar by Duncan Ly (Top 50 Best Restaurants Vacay.Ca), and the Yellow Door Bistro (Where Magazine Best New Restaurant 2013). We also have a great neighbouring tenant in the Hotel Arts Retail Complex that's definitely worth a visit - Taste Restaurant. In addition, we also own and operate one of Calgary's best restaurants - Chef's Table - at our sister property, the 19-room Kensington Riverside Inn which was recently named Calgary's first Relais & Chateaux property. Collectively, these are four great options to demonstrate good taste.

The bar had a variety of drinks that were different from anything I had tried before. Unique and tasty. Comfy atmosphere for happy hour.

“Weekend Smorg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Recently my husband and I joined my daughter at Hotel Arts weekend smorgasbord and did they ever have a tasty spread of good things to eat. Very different from the ordinary and small portions so you could return and not feel guilty.
The Hotel sponsored the Flood of Roses benefit for Calgary and again the food (appies) was over the top and very creative and delicious.
If you want a little taste of French cuisine - I don't think you will be disappointed if you make your way down to the Hotel Arts for a tasty treat.

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Went for drinks with some friends after a conference hosted at Hotel Arts. The bar staff was wonderful and cheery and the selection of drinks was great so we decided to stay for dinner. That turned out to be a great decision, the sous vide chicken was to die for! Great food, good service, fun atmosphere, I am a fan.

“Poor selection of Beer”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Little on tap and even less bottled. Not real comfortable seating and service was not great. What they did have was way over priced at $8 a glass for draught beer. There are three pubs within a block of this location, all of whom would make a far better choice,

“Food OK, service was not”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Had drinks and appetizer. Both were good, no complaints. The wait staff, however, were condescending and phony.
