The Hotel Le Germain is one of the most stylish in Calgary, and this is particularly true of their bar, Lounge Central 899. Located at lobby level, it’s a cool, slightly masculine space, all wood and stone, the colour scheme muted with large windows to let in the light. The long, sleek bar runs the length of the room and boasts an absinthe fountain if you’re feeling decadent. It makes the perfect space for sipping a flute of champagne before hitting the town or for indulging in a cocktail before dinner in the hotel restaurant. Their signature drink is a refreshing drink flavoured with ginger and cucumber, the Le Lounge cocktail blends orange vodka with Cointreau to winning effect and they do a superior French 75.
