Where is Sky 360 located?
Sky 360 is a restaurant located in the Calgary Tower in Canada.
The Calgary Tower is a 190.8-meter (626 ft) steel tower in the heart of downtown Calgary, Alberta.
Opened in 1968, the tower remains an iconic landmark in the city of Calgary.
It offers breathtaking 360-degree views of the city skyline and surrounding Rocky Mountains, making it one of the most popular tourist attractions in the area.
You can take an elevator to the observation deck, located 191 meters above ground level (for a fee), or dine at the restaurant.
The gift shop located at the ground level also stocks souvenirs to commemorate your visit.
Visiting the Calgary Tower vs Dining at the Sky 360 CT Restaurant
Calgary Tower stands tall in the heart of downtown. The tower is visible from most parts of the downtown area.
And it is completely free to check it out from outside.
You can enter the tower complex on the ground floor, pay for tickets (elevator to the summit) or buy souvenirs – for free.
Entry to the top requires a fee, and it starts at $19 CAD (it is cheaper to pay online. Buy it here).
With this ticket, you can get to the observation floor, and walk on the glass floor. There are informative exhibits at this level as well.
Now, when you reserve a table at the Sky 360, you get access to the restaurant only – and not to the observation section. We will share the reservation process below,
How to make a reservation at the Calgary Tower Restaurant Sky 360?
To make a reservation at the Sky 360 restaurant, you can make a booking online on OpenTable. You can select the date and time that works for you. The bookings open up at least a month in advance.

Note that you don’t pay anything online when you reserve a table. Each table is allotted a 2-hour window for the dining experience.
Even though an entry to the restaurant doesn’t include access to the observation deck, it is still worth it as you pay for the food and drinks – plus the views are amazing from the table-side as well. And the restaurant revolves, so 🙂

Visiting the Sky 360 in the day time vs evenings/night
We found that it was easier to find a spot at the restaurant during the day. If you are into photography and want to capture the views below and the overall landscape – consider reserving a table for brunch or lunch.
During our visit in the afternoon, the restaurant was not crowded at all, so we had a little privacy and definitely enjoyed the experience!
Visiting the Calgary Tower in the evening is a different experience altogether.
Although access to the observation deck will be closed at late hours such as midnight (closes at 9:00 pm), you can still soak in the views of the night skies and the illuminated city lights from the restaurant table.
This is a nice date night idea or romantic celebration!

Plus complemented by their award-winning wine list, outstanding food, and service, as well as contemporary design work, Sky 360 turns dinner into something entirely unforgettable.
