Description

Affectionately known as the 'King Eddy', the King Edward Hotel was built in phases between 1905 and 1910 and is the second oldest hotel building in Calgary. The earliest, three-storey section of the hotel was built in 1905 and is typical of early twentieth century design and construction in pioneer-era Alberta. The five-storey section of the hotel was constructed in phases in 1907, 1909 and 1910 and is characterized by its solid larger scale and differentiated detailing. Like many early Calgary buildings, the King Edward displays sandstone detailing, most of which was quarried locally. In the early 1980's, the King Eddy became one of Canada's first blues bars, proclaiming itself 'Home of the Blues' and gaining a national reputation. Legendary blues musicians such as BB King, John Hammond, Pinetop Perkins and Otis Rush performed at the King Edward during this time. When the King Edward closed its doors in 2004, the hotel was considered to be Canada's oldest blues bar.
