About Events with The Nash/Noble Fare
Situated in the vibrant and historic community of Inglewood in the recently restored National Hotel the Nash writes a new chapter in the hotel’s long history while building on the story of its past. The food concept is based on high quality natural ingredients sourced from as many sustainable local growers and producers as possible with a dash of urban grit thrown into the mix.A little history lessonThe National Hotel, a heritage building constructed in 1907, and at the time “the” hotel in Calgary served as the local district tavern and hotel for transient workers for the nearby CP railroad station. The Nash dining room takes inspiration from the once grand hotel’s design, while Of Cut Bar serves as the alter ego; drawing on the hotel’s less savoury side of history.Whiskey and womenBefore Inglewood’s main street became 9th avenue, it was known as ‘Atlantic avenue’, or more infamously referred to as ‘whiskey row’, and was a place to find booze, brawls and bawdy women.The darker sideOf cut’s walls are lined with a colorful collection of mug shots from the British library’s archives that put a spotlight on local scoundrels and rogues who would have frequented the hotel during the wake of prohibition. How’s that for a fascinating history?
