We welcome you to The Bank & Baron, reclaimed within The Bank of Nova Scotia building, which is recognized among one of Alberta's most historical. This grand space has been unlocked and a new downtown landmark awaits you.

The Bank and Baron is located in the heart of Calgary's infamous Stephen Avenue, the pulse of downtown. This avenue was named after George Stephen, 1st Baron Mount Stephen. He was the financial genius behind the creation of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the President of the Bank of Montreal and is remembered as one of the greatest philanthropists of his time. In honor of the significant history Baron Mount Stephen imparted into the fostering of Calgary's culture , we have brewed The Bank & Baron P.U.B.

The Bank & Baron is a place where a Traditional Public Urban Bar taps into a historical avenue destination. Crafting any event from a momentous occasion to an exquisite celebration can be effortlessly drafted.

    It was a lovely day in Calgary, my friend and I enjoyed a nice lunch on the patio at The Bank and Baron. Both food and service were great! I had the chicken Katsu salad and my friend had the B&B salad, accompanied with a glass of wine. Highly recommend!

    I was excited for this reservation after seeing how beautiful the building was online, but I was extremely disappointed by not only the staff, and the quality of the food. When we arrived, I asked for regular height table. As I have a physical disability. I told the host about this issue, and was told that they would only seat us at a regular height table if we sat outside. Even though there were several open tables of regular height, but we were told that we couldn't be seated there, because they "hold them for larger groups" and there was only the two of us. The entire top floor was also completely empty, but we were told that they would not seat us there either, and were not given a reason why. We wound up on the patio, which was extremely unpleasant. Not only was it cold, and windy, it was also very smokey due to the wildfire smoke. I will say that our server was quite good, and did their best to manage the table load they were handling. Though it seemed as though they were very under staffed. As the few servers that I saw, were constantly running around in a frenzy, because they were stretched so thinly. Which is more a commentary on poor management, than a reflection of the service staff. The food was also a let down. I ordered the short rib duxelles pappardelle, and it was completely lacking in flavour. It was really more of a glorified beef stroganoff than anything, and was distinctly lacking the rich flavours that one expects from a short rib dish. That's speaking as a chef with many years of experience. The amount of salt I had to add in order to bring it even the slightest semblance of flavour, honestly bordered on comical, and the dish gave me the worst heart burn that I've had in years. I would not recommend The Bank & Bard. Hopefully they will see this review, and give serious consideration to how they accommodate individuals with disabilities moving forward. As I was frankly disgusted with their treatment.

    It was an excellent location for a business lunch. Noise level was very manageable and we had a quiet area of the restaurant to ourselves. We were part of 11.

    Since there were only 2 servers the service was a little slow. We ordered the B&B salad; it was good except for the avocados. Even though I made reservations, there were only seats at the high tables, and my guest and I are short in height.
