Located on the 40th floor of Stephen Avenue Place, Major Tom is a sophisticated restaurant and bar where guests can enjoy striking panoramic views of Calgary and its surrounding landscapes in a refined yet welcoming setting.
Taking cues from the sophistication and glamour of a bygone era, the design channels the past into the relevant future. The subtle and well considered details harken back to the late 1960s, a time when elevated restaurants were a destination serving the ultimate cross-section of society. The underlying tone is inspired by Truman Capote. Known for his biting humour, quick wit, deep insights, and ability to party harder than anyone else; he was a gourmand, a bon vivant, a savant, and he captured the voice of the era perfectly. Major Tom is at once elevated and approachable, playful and at ease, confident and gracious.
The design is an exercise in restraint. The carefully curated interior serves as an understated backdrop for the astounding 40 floor views of the cityscape and majestic mountains beyond. Indirect soft cove lighting throughout sets the mood and highlights the existing unique cast concrete ceiling geometry of the 1970s building. The lounge is sexy and mysterious. Plush bespoke seating, rich tones, warm leathers, and dark wood lure you in for cocktails and conversations. The classic bar inlaid with exotic stone and bronze detailing creates an elegant focal point.
