Located next door to Studio Bell, the King Eddy is one of Calgary’s best new restaurants, bars, and live music venues. The building is also one of the city’s oldest blues venues (more on that later) and home to NMC’s offices, CKUA Calgary, and the world’s first mobile recording studio, the Rolling Stone Mobile Studio.
Stop by the Eddy for brunch, lunch, or dinner after your visit to Studio Bell and catch a live show on the famed Eddy stage. To view menus and upcoming acts, or to purchase tickets, please visit kingeddy.ca.
Established in 1905, the King Edward Hotel was Calgary’s second oldest hotel and the city’s longest operating bar and hotel when it closed in 2004.
In 2008, the Eddy was acquired by NMC and in collaboration with Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC), the King Eddy was restored brick-by-brick, honouring its original design and returning it to its 1905 glory.
In July of 2018, the King Eddy reopened to the public. While the Eddy stage was previously known for attracting blues greats, it now plays host to acts of all genres. A cornerstone of music, community, and culture for over a century, the Eddy continues to build on its storied musical legacy.
