About The Bank and Baron Pub
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.

The Bank and Baron Pub Ratings and Reviews
The service was very slow, especially considering how busy it was. The drink selection was fantastic and the staff were friendly once they finally stopped by. The curry bowl was average but the atmosphere was outstanding. Overall alright, but definitely too slow for a business lunch.
I really enjoyed The Bank and Baron. I was there on a Saturday and found it a little too dark and loud. I was with some girlfriends for my birthday and would have preferred the environment be more tailored to socializing. The food was great and so were the drink options. Friendly staff and reasonable prices.
Went with a group of 15 people, had to call the waitress, who was rude, several times to remind her to come take our orders. Food was below mediocre, no one finished theirs nor bothered to take it home with them. Half the table didn’t get water or drinks after asking for them several times, we were forced to share cups of water with one another. All this happened despite the fact that the restaurant was basically empty. Was forced to pay 18% gratuity despite the fact that we barely had a waitress for the night. Had to wait for about an hour to get our bills and it took another 40 minutes for the waitress to get change for those who needed it. Terrible experience, wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Only upside was that it was a nice ambience and looked decent.
spectacular room with lots of intimate spots to sit and chat. attentive staff. great for parties and business functions with a private space upstairs for 150, smaller function spaces on the main level and downstairs by the old vault. overall a very impressive transformation.
Very interesting interior as a converted restaurant from an old bank. Huge bar situated in the middle of the venue and 2nd floor balcony seating that wraps 360 degrees around the main floor. We had an energetic server who was practically the only server there for the evening so it made things a little slow but overall a place I would go again.
Went for Mother's Day. Food was both creative and tasted very good, reasonably priced. Loved the historic Bank of Nova Scotia conversion to restaurant. Despite not being very busy in the afternoon, server barely paid attention to my family. At the end came the surprise 18% tip because my family size (wife, me and six kids) is 8.
This was my first dining experience at this pub, I quite enjoyed it. It was super easy to make a reservation online and the website was super easy to navigate. I really enjoyed the ceasar drink, the tooth pick with sausage, olive, cheese and pepercini was delicious and added great flavour and decor to the drink. I would definitely dine here again.
Definitely a sports bar. Lots of large tvs. Lighting was dark. Had to go by bar where there was some lighting so could read menu. Popular spot for Stanley Cup playoffs on a Sunday evening. Had a difficult time getting the attention of the male waiter. Beef and bison chili excellent. We were there April 23rd and as of today May 1st nobody at Bank and Baron have acknowledge our visit under reservation for Greenwood so haven't received Open Table points.
This restaurant offers a great ambiance and a fun atmosphere. The food is great and the 1/2 price wine on Thursday is a plus! I would not recommend it to a large group that does not have 2-3 hours of time to spare as they have difficultly being able to provide the service to so many, during the busy lunch time hours. Our server was a lovely girl, but did not know quite how to deal with our need for prompt and quick service so that we could get to our meetings. I will definitely return to the restaurant , but I will not be able to convince the rest of my group to come there again unfortunately.
Went on a Thursday night to meet up with a couple of old friends and take in the remarkable restoration of the building, hence the 'energetic' rating. The upstairs was closed (from where you can better appreciate the restoration) and there was no area of the downstairs that was quiet enough to talk without having to almost shout. However the food we had (dry ribs, mussels, pizza) was good. The service was so-so. We had to ask at least twice the get water refills.
