There is something special about Calgary. It is different than other Canadian cities. You can feel it when patio season starts, when a chinook rolls in, or when you get a high five from a stranger just after the Flames make the playoffs. It’s a small town at heart. At its core, The Metropolitan, has always aimed to embody that spirit. Over the past 16 years we’ve grown with the city, for the city; forever evolving in constant pursuit of being the place where Calgarians gather.
