King Eddy in the historic East Village of Calgary really knows how to put on a Sunday Funday! There are so many amazing date ideas to do in the city during the warmer months, and we may have just found the best one for BBQ and beer lovers.

Each and every Sunday from 2-6pm until September 10th, they have a rooftop BBQ party full of everything you need to celebrate summer.

King Eddy

King Eddy is located inside the former second oldest hotel, bar, and restaurant; The King Edward Hotel. The hotel was established in 1905 – making it over 115 years old but don’t let that fool you.

The revamped spot introduces fun, modern vibes while keeping an old-school decor as homage to the previous tenant.

Walk upstairs to the rooftop patio and find a fun date oasis that will make you feel like you’re at the best backyard party ever!

Discover BBQ eats (see below to learn more about those), all while playing backyard party games like ping-pong, foosball, Jenga, darts and Cornhole; plus music to perfect the fun rooftop vibe!


Expect a menu of simple BBQ favourites that are easy to eat while mingling, playing games, and sipping on local beers. The menu may be scaled-down for the Sunday festivities, but you can’t miss this great food that’s drawn inspiration from the cultural backgrounds of the chefs at King Eddy.

Think refreshing Classic Caesar Salads, Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwiches, juicy Burgers, Jerk Chicken Drumsticks, Korean Beef Bulgogi Tacos, and more!

“Every Sunday, we’re seeing more and more families come out for our Sunday brunch with newly updated items, and we hope to see more people come out with their kids for the King Eddy Rooftop BBQ Party series,” said Ryan McLeish, the King Eddy’s General Manager, “Before 6:00 pm is all-ages on the main floor and rooftop.”

For beer lovers

They even have a different local ‘tap takeover’ feature every week so you can make this your routine Sunday patio date while discovering new local brews. You may even find a new favourite summer sipper.

Coming up, you can expect to see these beers flowing at King Eddy‘s Rooftop BBQ Party:

  • Banded Peak Brewing on August 20th,
  • Stay tuned to discover which brewery will be taking over the taps on August 27th, September 3rd, and September 10th
