Need a place that can be a bit rowdy or quirky? Check out Radio Room. Great outdoor spaces. Upstairs space gives you a view of Alberta street or street level patio space under an umbrella just chillaxin. There is an airy openness about the indoor space as well. Enjoy a cold beer from their eclectic and wide variety selection. Pair the ice cold one with their Portland fusion pub grub such as the BBQ wings or Fried Brussel sprouts. Stick around till the later hours of the night and you’ll enjoy some great music and conversation. If its cold at night they even have a fire pit!
This is a great neighborhood pub. One can tell the beer is made with blood sweat and tears which makes it taste that much better. The patio is spacious but still has a community feel to it. The food is typical pub grub but very reasonably priced…and it tastes good! These guys really know how to create an atmosphere that makes you feel like you are chillin in your own backyard with your friends.
