Happy New Year! This week in our YYC Weekend scoop we’re going to focus in on one of our favourite Calgary inner city communities, Bridgeland. This amazing neighbourhood is going through its own resurgence right now with a number of great developments in the area. So whether you’re looking at moving to the area or just looking for a place to take a walk this weekend, here are some of the neighbourhood’s hotspots to check out.
- Grab a burger at Burger 320 where in a space of only 320 square feet, Chef Mario captures our imagination with his creativity using fresh local farm ingredients and wonderful Italian flourishes imported from his native homeland. Every burger created is made with fresh brisket, ground daily on-site from locally raised beef. Deliciously custom-grilled and served up with home-fixings you love nestled inside fresh-baked, branded buns.
- Enjoy some local art at the at Tiny Gallery. The Tiny Gallery project builds small, enclosed plinths, and places them on pedestrian-friendly Calgary streets. The project aims to bridge the gaps between street art, gallery art, and public art, simultaneously helping local artists reach a larger audience and making art more accessible to the general public. Tiny Gallery also encourages pedestrian exploration of Calgary communities and promotes locally-owned businesses.
- Shop at the Bridgeland Market, this small, local grocery store represents old time values and remains active in the community, supporting and participating in events and causes that are important to our neighbourhood. The market stocks stock a diverse selection of everyday food items, even creating and baking many products in-store and works with suppliers who share our commitment to quality and community, and source from local providers whenever possible.
- Have a coffee at Baya Rica Cafe, nestled just behind Bridgeland’s main street in a bright yellow house is Baya Rica Café. This new café is also a roasterie, importing beans directly from farmers in Costa Rica. Watch the roasting process and try an espresso or drip coffee.
If a stroll through Bridgeland happens to be enough to make you fall in love with the community, there are a lot of great developments in the area. Find out more about any of them by contacting YYsCene™ or check out what’s available on the market in Bridgeland right now.
