National 8

A Canadian spin on Ivy League sporting clubs, National 8th is a versatile space that’s both regal and fun. Designed to cater to Calgary’s corporate crowd more than previous locations, it includes a 600-person rooftop beer garden, a moody and sophisticated taproom with athletic stripes, deep tufted booths and dimly lit library lamps throughout. Though it feels as if it has been there forever, bold graphics keep it grounded within contemporary culture.
