"This is one of the fancier restaurants in town and it does not disappoint. It’s been years since we’ve made it back here but I still remember the maple-glazed salmon and the super creamy mashed potatoes.

Your Guide To Amazing Cocktails in Banff National Park
"Saltlik’s Lloyd Christmas may have started as a seasonal cocktail drink, but its popularity has kept it on the menu season-after-season. Crafted with Gordon’s Gin, Lillet Blanc, Chambord, fresh lime and lemon juice, cane syrup, it’s shaken over ice with fresh basil and served on the rocks.

Mentioned by Western Living Magazine
"This new room is actually an outpost of a celebrated Quebec-based Italian restaurant, but the cabin-chic design makes the transplant feel right at home in the Moose Hotel. Though there are other Italian restaurants in Banff, Pacini is the only one serving brunch on weekends (with mouth-watering offerings like capicollo and pesto eggs benny, and breakfast lasagna crepes stuffed with ham, spinach and alfredo sauce) and breakfast everyday. If you're there later in the day, you can't go wrong with asparagus and shrimp risotto, or the Italian feast for two with steak, sausage, asparagus topped with Sicilian sea salt."

The Bar Star's Guide to Banff
"Banff-goers of a certain age might remember this space as the notorious nightclub and bad-decision factory Silver City. These days it’s home to High Rollers, a bowling alley-beer hall-pizza joint. Lace up a pair of retro-styled kicks and hit the lanes, then move the party over to the neon-lit bar area where long wooden tables practically guarantee that you’ll end up making friends."

"High Rollers is more commonly known as “the bowling alley” because that’s exactly what it is. Don’t be fooled by its humble exterior because inside it’s a really nice spot – think bowling alley meets upscale ski chalet. This pub-atmosphere is great for an evening out or a few beers après-ski!"
