Having a storied past, from a railway stockyard to a newspaper press, The Hemingway Room is our boutique 'blank page' event locale.
Sleek concrete floors and three grand west-facing windows framed by 22 feet of original exposed brick, The Hemingway Room is simple yet bold, and undeniably charming. Named after one of the great novelists and journalists of the twentieth-century, The Hemingway Room once housed the former workspace of Calgary's iconic alternative news publication - Fast Forward Weekly. As rich in character as the stories once written by Ernest himself, within these four walls we invite you to compose your event in our most dexterous of venues.
With over 3000 square feet of space to play with, The Hemingway Room is extraordinarily spacious and easily transformable making it an exquisite private setting for your affair.
The grande west facing windows permeate natural light throughout the room studded by cognac chandeliers, while the projector wall is perfect for presentations and performances with background visuals. We invite you to compose your own masterpiece within our most poetic and imaginative space, whether it be to share industry insight with peers and colleagues, or to waltz the night away in your finest dancing shoes.
WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT THE Hemingway Room?
The Hemingway Room is our signature 'blank canvas' event room. Unlike The Parlour Room which comes fully furnished and, thus, has it's own personality and feel, The Hemingway Room allows you to put your own personal stamp on it by transforming the room into whatever fantasy you can imagine.
WHEN IS THE Hemingway Room AVAILABLE?
The Hemingway Room is available all day, every day so it is perfect if you need a weekday rental or simply a little more flexibility with your set-up and clean-up times.
WHAT EVENTS DO WE HOST IN THE Hemingway room?
As a ‘blank canvas’ with character, The Hemingway Room is adaptable to both social occasions such as parties, weddings and celebrations, as well as professional events, including strategic workshops, large meetings and networking gatherings.
WHAT IS THE ROOM CAPACITY?
The capacity is 155 people and the room is 3000 square feet. There is also a mezzanine level for your storage necessities and a private alcove perfect for caterer prep, a break out room or a VIP lounge.
