The Nash Brings Something New

Things just got a whole lot more exciting in this city. The opening of this swank new establishment has officially made Inglewood an option for later night adventures.

Located in the neighbourhood that seems to be opening up more cool shops and restaurants every week, the Nash can be found in an old character hotel that has been completely overhauled from its once sad and dilapidated state.

With large windows, a giant historical map of the area circa 1910 ,and beautiful hardwood floors that were installed to be remind guests of whiskey barrels from prohibition days, this spot is guaranteed to be on everyone’s list for best room in the city. 

And that’s just the interior – let’s talk about the food.

Opened by Chef Michael Noble, the man behind ‘it’ restaurant NOtaBLE, the food is everything you’d expect from one of the country’s best chefs. From opening Catch to competing in food Olympics and catering 2014’s Diner en Blanc, Chef Noble has really done it all. First-timers and long-time followers alike will love the new menu.

Also joining the team is Executive Chef Matthew Batey, who previously worked in the Okanagan and has played a huge part in defining regional cuisine for BC’s wine country. Thanks to him, Mission Hill’s restaurant is one of the top-rated wine destinations in North America. 

Now let’s talk about Off Cut Bar.

For everyone who likes to change it up after dinner, this place is perfect for you. Just a few steps from the Nash dining room, this bar will make you feel like you’ve pulled up a stool at a hip nightspot in Chicago.

The Off Cut provides a different mood and feel from the restaurant; plush stools and window seats will make you feel right at home. 

And don’t forget to check out the mug shots on the wall ­– you might recognize someone. Giving a shout out to the darker side of Calgary’s past, the mug shots on the wall are of less than upstanding citizens from the early 1900s.

For anyone who likes a little history, you’ll be entertained to know that for many years the National Hotel was something akin to the infamous Cecil, and was best known as a shady bar for drunken brawls and women of the night.  

While fistfights aren’t encouraged these days – drinking still is. Anyone who loves brown liquor will be right at home here.
