The Nash



In 1907 the historic National Hotel opened in the Inglewood neighbourhood of Calgary. It was home to transient railroad workers during this time. Over the years, it developed a rather seedy reputation and was eventually closed in 1998.

In 2014, this property was reopened and is now home to The Nash restaurant, and Off Cut Bar. Chef Michael Noble contracted interior designer Sarah Ward to collaborate on the interior design vision. With the rich history of this space, there was the desire to combine a sense of nostalgia along with an open contemporary feeling.

In the dining room, KBM installed Nydree R&Q White Oak Natural hardwood. The lightness and natural grain of this hardwood assists in establishing the open and airy feel to this area.

The Off Cut Bar has a more tavern feel to it, and the flooring selection is indicative of that. KBM installed Kaswell Parquet, Fume Oak in this lounge. The unique look of this parquet floor pays homage to the history and nostalgic ambiance of the original property. This area showcases several tributes to days gone by, with photos of convicts displayed on the back wall, and the original hotel door still in place.

KBM is proud to have participated in the completion of this new Calgary dining hotspot, and are happy to call The Nash a neighbour in Inglewood.
