Cowboys: Calgary’s legendary nightclub finally reopens next month

Cowboys, the “most legendary nightclub” that was closed due to the pandemic, is finally reopening.

The Cowboys Music Festival was one of the highlights of the Calgary Stampede this year. It also gave us the first clues about the return of the closed club since March 2020.

It looks like the “most fun you can have with your boots” club will reopen on September 2, with parties running all fall to celebrate.

Cowboys Dance Hall is known for its massive parties, events, concerts, and all sorts of other shows that YYC loves and has missed. It’s a Calgary institution that we can’t wait to finally get back.

“Cowboys Calgary returns bigger, better and more LEGENDARY than ever,” the nightclub posted on Instagram. “We can’t wait to show you all what we’ve been up to over the past two years, you won’t be disappointed.”

Musicians like Snoop Dogg, Chad Brownlee, Loud Luxury and Nelly have all played Cowboys, as have comedians, drag queens, DJs and other well-known celebrities from shows like Big brother and the bachelorette.

After parties, theme parties and gastronomic events are also extremely common. When there are no shows, it is quite simply one of the funniest nightclubs in town.

Dust off those boots and grab the cowboy hat off the shelf, because the Stampede spirit isn’t over yet.

Stay tuned for all updates on parties, events and shows to expect when the doors reopen on September 2.
