The combination of a restaurant atmosphere where you can enjoy delicious food and nightlife entertainment makes both of these destinations a one-stop-shop for a fun night on the town.

Black Rock Pizzeria and Bakery

With the vision of opening an innovative high-quality pizzeria in Southern Alberta, John and Erica Warlow founded Black Rock Pizzeria and Bakery in 2010 to overnight success. The pizzeria uses only the freshest ingredients which are quickly transformed into mouth-watering pies. The menu offers classic combinations like Hawaiian and Meat Lovers, but also includes some of John and Erica's own creations, like the Pickle Pizza made with creamy garlic sauce and piled high with dill pickles. Described as an ‘excellent’ restaurant with compliments of ‘they’ve got the pizza game nailed to the wall’, we're confident that you'll enjoy every last bite.

Up for a Game of Pac-Man?

The fun doesn’t end with pickle pizza—Black Rock Pizzeria and Bakery is also home to a collection of old school arcade games that will feed your inner child. With 60 games to choose from, you'll find it easy to spend hours here. Feel like night in? There's no need to leave your cozy cabin because Black Rock Delivers! Order online and savour your favourite slices curled up next to the fire.

Holy Ghost Café & Music Hall

Described as ‘a treasure in Crowsnest Pass’, the Holy Ghost Café & Music Hall is a not-to-be-missed destination. The old yellow building was originally a church that sat abandoned for years, but the owners saw its potential and transformed the space into what it is today. With a focus on homemade food, freshly roasted coffee, local artisans, and live music, the Holy Ghost Café & Music Hall is full of “good vibes.” We invite you to bite into one of their delicious menu items—which includes hot panini sandwiches, crisp salads, and homemade soups—and settle into the wonderful ambiance of the café.

Experience the Oasis of Craft

The Holy Ghost Café & Music Hall has an atmosphere that’s been described by visitors as an “oasis of craft.” The building still has the original handcrafted ceiling and colourful stained glass windows intact, and showcases an interesting display of antiques and artwork. As the go-to music venue in The Pass, the café hosts local talent regularly. What sounds better than cozying up in front of the café's fire, having a cup of Crowsnest Coffee, and listening to live music?
