Proud to be serving NAIT since 1988 1st place
accredited campus bar category for Best Bar None
for the second consecutive year in 2017

We're closed for the summer. We'll be open on August 31, 2017.

The Nest was opened on NAIT’s main campus in 1988 by three partners: NAIT Students’ Association (NAITSA), NAIT Board of Governors and the Alberta Government. Since then it’s been the best place on campus for students, instructors and staff to meet, hang out, have a burger and beer at lunch, and enjoy some drinks after class.

Best Bar None - Best Campus Bar title for the second straight year!

We offer high quality personalized service, great food and we are fully licensed. Must be of legal drinking age to purchase alcohol. Valid ID required. Please drink responsibly.
