Located in East Village and housed in the historical Simmons Building along the Bow River, charbar is spearheaded by executive chef Jessica Pelland with the support of co-owners and Top Chef chefs Connie DeSousa and John Jackson. One of Canadas best restaurants partners with Sidewalk Citizen Bakery and Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters to create a collaborative and communal destination. Charbar restaurant features cuts of ultra-dry aged Alberta beef and an ocean wise seafood raw bar, that spills out onto the open air riverfront patios with views of the bow river. At its heart is a custom-made Argentine wood-fired grill honouring the art of asado and the culinary inspirations of Spain and Italy.

    My girlfriend and I had the best time on the patio during stampede. The service was exceptional and the food was even better. One of the scallop dishes specifically was so good, we ordered it twice!

    Came here before heading to stampede - great food and good variety for everyone. A bit on the pricey side considering dishes don’t always come with more than one side, but delicious! Service was great and the ambiance was perfect.
