At Alpine Social, they’re certain that people like mountain adventures and like to brag about them. So they’ve created a social hub for Lake Louise, a great place to meet, eat and celebrate. If you’re looking for hearty comfort food, you’ve found it—artisan, locally grown and alpine-inspired fare that tastes great at 5,200 feet. Dig into dishes that satisfy mountain-size appetites (some say calories don’t count in the Rockies), or reward yourself after conquering the mountain with a frosty pint (Alpine Social has enough local craft beer to quench the thirst of the entire town.) Looking for something more elevated? The cocktail menu features aged spirits for sipping plus savoury options, and there’s an  impressive bourbon and Canadian whiskey selection.


Inspired by the ‘glory days’ of Canadian mountaineering, the décor includes historic photographs and climbing gear. Claim a seat at the bar or gather your crew at a large table. Watch sports on big HDTVs and have fun in the interactive photo booth.
