The Calgary Tower opened in 1968 and is located 626 feet (191 meters) above the downtown core, just steps away from Calgary’s shopping, dining, entertainment, and nightlife.
From the observation deck, visitors experience a spectacular 360° view of the city, the Rocky Mountains, the foothills, and the prairies. A glass floor gives guests a birds-eye view of the streets below. At the base of the tower, a visitor information center offers advice about Calgary’s arts and culture, award-winning cuisine, parks and pathways, specialty shops, events, and outdoor activities.
In addition, guests of the tower can dine in one of two restaurants. SKY 360 is located at 510 feet and completes a full rotation every 45 minutes during lunch and every 60 minutes during dinner. On the second level is Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, which features New Orleans style cuisine.
