New bar Freestyle Social Club opens inside Calgary's Hotel Arts

A cool new social concept opens in Calgary

After closing the book on Raw Bar in the wake of the pandemic, Hotel Arts Group recently launched a new in-house concept that aims to connect the Calgary community with a social experience rooted in whimsical share plates, innovative cocktails, and more. 

The cocktail program at Freestyle Social Club was designed to incorporate flavours from around the world, while the food menu was crafted by Hotel Arts food and beverage director Quinn Staple to feature a mix of shareable, seasonally-influenced, and ingredient-forward offerings. 

“The menu at Freestyle Social Club will feature a good variety of seasonal rotating dishes. The menu is designed to make it simple for a couple on a date to easily share a few plates while enjoying a great cocktail, substantial enough for a single hotel guest to enjoy on their own and fun for a large group of friends or co-workers to share on a night out”, says Staple. 

In addition to the food and beverage programs, the other big draw for the new Hotel Arts concept is the adjoining group golf simulators, which feature a comfortable and diversified seating area that can be adjusted to accommodate various group sizes. 

Freestyle Social Club will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Reservations can be made online.
