The Water Tower Grill & Bar

Experience Unique Food

& The Best View in Town

Perched high in the sky above Lethbridge, the Water Tower offers a one-of-a-kind, panoramic view of our city – and front-row seats to southern Alberta’s brilliant prairie sunsets. Along with the view, we serve internationally inspired, casual cuisine in a fun, stylish atmosphere. From hand-crafted drinks at Cocktail Hour, to a romantic evening out, or even for a relaxed lunch with the family, the Water Tower is your home for food, drinks, and a view impossible to get anywhere else in the city.

Join us today to experience dining on a whole new level!

Happy Cocktail Hour

From the very beginning, the Water Tower has been there to quench the thirst of Lethbridge residents. Today, we’re celebrating over half a century of serving this community drinks (and food) with Cocktail Hour, daily from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. Not only do you get to survey your city from 100 feet up, but you get to experience our modern, stylish lounge in the sky. We think that’s something to celebrate everyday!

Join us at the Water Tower for Happy Hour Cocktails in the sky!

Ladies Lounge

Enjoy special events and discount pricing at our monthly Ladies Lounge, every first Monday of the month.

Special Events

From DJs spinning the latest hits, to salsa nights where you can dance your soul (and soles) free, we’ve got some amazing events planned for Lethbridge Night-Lifers! Follow us on social media to keep up to date!


Lethbridge’s local watering hole, since 1959

The Water Tower has been an integral part of Lethbridge’s skyline since its completion in 1959. Back then, it stored and supplied Lethbridge with clean drinking water. But, like many small towns, Lethbridge updated their water supply shortly before the turn of the Millenium, leaving the water tower an obsolete monument from a different time. But in March 2003, a local businessman and architect took over the building, saving it from destruction and creating a restaurant with an amazing view for the whole community to enjoy.

Whether you choose to glam up with your girlfriends for a wild night out, or you need some decompression time after work with a stiff cocktail, or you want to spoil your favourite special someone with a night on the town (yet not break the bank ;)), the Water Tower is here to serve you and your favourite people delicious food and drink you won’t find anywhere else in Lethbridge South.


An awe-inspiring structure, with a view to match

It’s hard to really understand the impact of The Water Tower until you’ve experienced it yourself. From the dizzying height of the 360-degree balcony to the unique interior dimensions and design, The Water Tower features some truly impressive specs!

Original Specs:

  • Tank sat 102’ (31 metres) above the ground, with a diameter of 76’ (23 metres)
  • Held 1.9 Million litres (around 500,000 gallons) of water
  • Stood 180’ (55 metres) at its full height
  • 165 stairs to the reservoir
  • 1” (2.5 cm) sway in high winds

Specs since renovations:

  • 60 metres (197’) high from the foot to the top of the aerial
  • 10-second elevator ride from base to restaurant
  • Seats 105 in the lounge and 115 in the restaurant
  • ‘Aerial boardwalk’ sits 102’ (31 metres) above the ground for a view that is jaw-dropping
  • Still a 1” (2.5 cm) sway in high winds
