Inglewood is Calgary’s oldest, most historic neighbourhood and we can’t get enough of saying that! Established in 1875 after Fort Calgary was built, the district was originally known as the Brewery Flats after the Calgary Brewing and Malting Company. Located across from the Elbow River, Inglewood has developed amongst a rich history of settlement, Indigenous and civilian trading and the construction of the CP Rail line.
Inglewood’s Atlantic Avenue, now warmly known as 9th Ave, is Calgary’s first main street and has continued to enrich the lives of Calgarian’s with lively entertainment venues, boutiques, galleries and restaurants. The avenue has maintained its historic charm with many commercial buildings still standing strong.
Situated within the LEED certified Atlantic Avenue Art Block, we are found inside Bite Grocer (one of Calgary’s few independent grocers chalked full of local products, in-house bakery and butcher!) where we neighbour the Esker Foundation – Calgary’s largest, privately funded, non-commercialized contemporary art gallery.
