The Atlas Hotel
A true staycation is in order for your night on the town. Your first stop, The Atlas Hotel. Located in South Regina, this locally-owned hotel aims to deliver an unforgettable night’s stay. Choose from their selection of Regular Rooms, Business Club Rooms, Poolside Rooms, and Suites. Check-in is at 3 pm, so you’ve got plenty of time to unwind and get ready for the night ahead. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a 50” flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi, the mini-fridge, and more! If you’re feeling a bit peckish, call room service and order a pre-dinner snack because hey, you’ve earned it! Once you’ve enjoyed peak levels of relaxation, it’s time to head to dinner.
The Diplomat Steakhouse
The Diplomat Steakhouse has been around since 1979 and is the perfect place to enjoy an exquisite meal. With the finest cuts of meat, an impressive wine program and a collection of rare Cognacs, you’re in for quite the evening. To start, browse their expansive list of red and white wines. With a number of options from New Zealand, Canada, the United States, Chile, South Africa, Italy, and more you might be a little overwhelmed. Don’t hesitate to ask your server for a recommendation based on your individual palette.
Once you’ve chosen your wine, you’re on to the appetizers. Opt for the Crispy Calamari, Mushroom Victoria, or the Saganaki Cheese to get you started. When it comes to the entrees, there’s no shortage of mouthwatering options. Steaks alone, come with a number of choices. Choose from the Ribeye, Filet Mignon, T-Bone, New York Strip, and more. Feeling like poultry? Try the Chicken Parmesan or the Chicken Neptune. Last but not least, Fresh Grilled Salmon, Alaskan King Crab, and Shrimp & Pesto Risotto are our favourite seafood entrees.
Whether you opt for chicken, steak, or seafood, we have no doubt that you’re going to have a seamless dining experience from your first sip to your last bite.
Dandy’s Artisan Ice Cream
Make sure you save room for dessert because next you’re headed to Dandy’s for some tasty artisanal ice cream. Dandy’s has been around for almost two years and handcrafts their premium ice cream one batch at a time. Using local, seasonal ingredients, and Canadian dairy products, they create some pretty exceptional flavours.
Choose from their line up of signature flavours like Blueberry Pie Crumb, Cereal Milk with Caramelized Bananas, Espresso Almond Biscotti, Coconut Ash Honeycomb, and more!
Feeling seasonal? Every month Dandy’s releases a seasonal flavour list. Their January seasonals included Nanaimo Bar, PB+J French Toast, Bubblegum Burst, and more!
Once you choose your flavour get it scooped into a homemade waffle cone or opt for a cup. Too indecisive to choose just one flavour? Opt for a flight and pick four different flavours to try!
