What is your summer patio style? Do you love people watching during happy hour, or retreating from the city bustle to enjoy a relaxing escape? We’ve got you covered either way with some recommendations for great patios on 4th Street.

Añejo Restaurant

In the landmark 4th Street Rose building, Añejo offers handcrafted Mexican cuisine, 200+ tequilas, and Calgary’s best margarita. Their patio provides the perfect perch to sip your margarita and look out over the activity on 4th Street.

Joyce on 4th

Grab a seat at one of the high-top patio tables that face out to the neighbourhood and enjoy a pint at Joyce on 4th. They offer 72 draught beers on tap, as well as extensive whiskey and wine lists to go along with your meal.

Anju Restaurant

The perfect place to catch some sun and watch the city rush by. Settle in on Anju’s spacious patio on one of Calgary’s best corners (4th St & 17th Ave SW) and enjoy the inventive Korean food with a modern twist.

Original Joe’s

Another great patio for people watching, Original Joe’s on 4th is a great casual spot to meet friends and relax street-side.


Step through the restaurant and out into a private patio space at the back. You may not see it from the front, but Earls on 4th offers a covered back-patio featuring a cozy outdoor fireplace. If you want to relax outside without the bustle of the city, this is a great spot.
