The Heart of Bragg Creek comprises the Studio & Cafe, located 25minutes west of Calgary city limits. The Studio is a cathedral like 800 square ft octagonal post and beam structure crafted from reclaimed timbers. It is tucked amongst a spruce & pine forest, right in the centre of the hamlet of Bragg Creek. Our local mule deer family, frequent the property, and often rest on the surrounding grass.
A few minute stroll takes you to the Elbow river, with rocky shores as the perfect landscape to meditate, contemplate and simply ‘Be’.

Add a layer of nourishment to your event with us, through our offerings of Elixirs, Teas, Raw snacks & Lunches. We are happy to customize the perfect accompaniment to enhance your groups experience with us.
