Five Things to Do in Regina

Try stand-up paddleboarding on Wascana Lake, enjoy a Mason jar sundae on the patio of Leopold's Tavern East and spin at The Wheelhouse Cycle Club
 

 

Capitol Jazz Club & Tapas Bar

This restaurant and bar brightened up downtown’s historic Singer building, thanks to a chic design that evokes a 1920s style complete with a stage for live jazz performances. Try one of the bar’s high-end handcrafted cocktails, like the Black Tea Whiskey Sour or the Brambleberry Gin Fizz, and share some plates from the tapas-style menu—don’t miss the duck crepes or the paella.

The Queen City SUP Shop

Stand-up paddleboarding isn’t just reserved for coastal cities; land-locked Regina is getting in on the fun, thanks to The Queen City SUP Shop. The husband and wife duo who own the shop are both certified SUP instructors, and you’ll often find them on Wascana Lake giving paddling lessons or leading paddlefit and SUP yoga classes. The pair also have a hut set up on Katepwa Beach for board rentals.

Leopold’s Tavern East

Building off the success of the original Leopold’s Tavern, the owners opted for a second location in, you guessed it, the city’s east end. This spot is larger than the original and just as lively. Out front you’ll find a large, sunny patio, perfect for a beer and some pub grub like a donair, deep-fried pickles or a Mason Jar Sundae—pulled pork or mac ‘n cheese layered with cornbread, coleslaw, baked beans and a fried pickle.

The Wheelhouse Cycle Club

This spin studio, located in the city’s Warehouse District, is the first of its kind in Regina. Spinners can expect a high-energy cardio workout on stationary bikes led by certifed instructors. The slick space has a full locker room stocked with bath products and towels, and there’s also a fully-stocked juice and smoothie bar.

History Alive! Vignettes

Regina’s history comes alive with theatrical performances at the city’s government buildings. Head to Government House to learn the history of Saskatchewan’s first Lieutenant Governor, Amédée Forget, and his wife Henriette. At the Legislative Building, visitors can meet Saskatchewan’s first premier, Walter Scott, and learn about his vision for the newly created province. Performances are free and in English and French. Look on the government’s site for times.
