These two spaces will be absolutely key to the vibrancy and feel of the area. An Earl's would be nice along with something like a dedicated sports bar.

Whats wrong with the Canadian Icehouse and Banquet? How many bars does Ice District need - it has a Joeys, bars at the JW and the Casino ... and something sweet will replace Mercer Tavern - then you have the bars in the Boardwalk area.

Agreed, partially. I would give my kingdom for a downtown Rec Room, which would fit nicely in this building.

It needs seats for 1000-2000 is what it needs and to be a destination for hotels on non-game nights.

I don't think a space for 2000 it is viable in the core or anywhere else in Edmonton. That would kill many smaller bars that host game nights. To lease that kind of space downtown and make $ will require it being full every night. Not happening. The only place would be Rogers Place using our paid for Winter Garden and rethink some of the other space and turn that into a going concern for playoffs and final. games - Oilers, Elks and other teams. The space is built - so operating costs would be much less and currently its wasted space. But why couldn't Ice District use is plaza to host events all the time within pop up beer gardens and large TV screens?

Tried to hit that Alchemy patio a couple of weeks ago and it still has not opened. The server mentioned they wanted to open it this summer but it has stayed closed due to the incidents with windows falling out of Stantec.
