Banff is world renowned and a well-loved getaway location for Calgarians escaping the city limits for romantic and adventurous occasions alike. Every weekend the town of Banff seems to be buzzing with city-slickers trading in their 17th Ave reservations for Banff Avenue patios and festivities.
Now with The Radiant nestled in the heart of the mountain town, there is a brand new venue that is already making it’s statement as a Banff destination of its own! The Radiant is a very classy, 1920’s inspired live entertainment venue – perfect for your next date night in the mountains. The atmosphere of The Radiant is unparalleled and an incredible setting for a lively night out on Banff Ave, or an intimate romantic dinner and a show.
The Radiant has sure brought justice and life back to the historical Harmon’s Building. With the Art Deco inspired decor, when you enter, you feel as if you have stepped into the building’s original 1918 state. It truly envelops you in history and culture and is the perfect setting for live music and cabaret!
Just by reviewing their website and social media, you will get a sense of the passion for community that The Radiant is focussed on building. They are adamant about supporting the LGBTQ2A+ community and quickly became a hub for Banff Pride in October 2020, and continue to host incredible events such as Brilliance Drag and Beers for Queers!
Whether you are stopping by for a post-hike snack and cocktail or making the trip for a romantic dinner and a show – you won’t be disappointed. The menu is flexible for whatever experience – from a fine dining dinner experience, or delicious snacks while you enjoy the entertainment. The cocktail list is expansive and inspired, and the food menu has something for everyone, from carnivore favourites to plant-based delights.
From 5-7pm in the Parlour Room you can enjoy some spectacular Happy Hour specials every day The Radiant is open!
If you are seated on the patio, they even have a Barkcuterie board for your hungry fur friend, courtesy of Banff Dog House!
Live music is a large pillar of the atmosphere and entertainment offerings at The Radiant! Some very exciting shows that are upcoming include:
Friday, August 14 – Ellen Doty
Thursday, September 9 – Blue Moon Marquee
Sunday, September 12 – Amelie Patterson
Saturday, October 2 – Sanah Kadoura Trio
