Well where are you from?

If you are from any city bigger than us, it'll be the same old stuff.

If you come small town Alberta, it'll be like a bar, with drinking and trouble. There really isn't much for decent hotels around Whyte Ave as it's close to the University. There are a few south on Calgary Trail, but you'll have to taxi it.

Depends what kind of bar you're looking for, mostly dependent on music. If it's warm out I highly suggest just bar hopping and find a place you like. However for the group you mention The Rack is probably ideal (top 40, younger crowd), maybe The Ranch if you like country (away from Whyte Ave), Union Hall is also close by and provides a more club-esque experience (also off of Whyte Ave by 5 minutes).
