If getting dressed up and enjoying 5-star restaurant service is a must on your romantic weekend, consider getting reservations at one of these Calgary restaurants.
Sky360 at Calgary Tower
The Calgary Tower is a must see for all Calgarians, and one of the best ways to enjoy the view from the top of the 190 metre free standing observation tower is to reserve a table at Sky360. Arrive early for your reservations so you can enjoy one of the best views of the city skyline. At the restaurant, you can take in a view from the slowly rotating dining room, ordering from an award-winning wine list and a menu of innovative cuisine. They also serve brunch, so you can choose if you'd like to enjoy a sunlit view or the nighttime skyline.
Teatro is one of Calgary's most well known and beloved fine dining restaurants. Using locally sourced and organic ingredients wherever possible, the chefs craft unforgettable menu items that are always changing. Refined and Italian-inspired fare is what they are known for, all accompanied by an impressive wine cellar.
Enjoy a classic romantic weekend activity by booking a couples massage at one of Calgary's top spas. The Spa Ritual is a favorite in Northwest Calgary, with multiple couple packages to choose from. They also offer lessons so you can learn the art of massage to bring home with you.
At SKA Thermal Spa in the heart of Beltline, your couples massage experience will combine relaxation with health. The treatment features an intense hydrotherapy session in addition to time in the sauna and steam room, all paired with a relaxing couples massage.
Rent some e-bikes to ride along the Bow River, take a hike, or enjoy a picnic in one of Calgary's many beautiful parks. Calgary is a city with a diverse urban core and plenty of nightlife, but not without outdoor recreation and natural beauty. Enjoying this blend of urban and natural appeal is one of the best parts of living in Calgary.
