The term “ranahan” refers to a top hand or a good all-around cowboy. 

A throwback to the days of the old west, its relevance lives on as a fitting description of those individuals at the top of their game and an integral part of the action.

This elegant private club located in GMC Stadium on the third level overlooking the Infield, offers an authentic western atmosphere that marries fine food and fine wine. Guests enjoy their culinary experience in a warm rustic ambiance until they are guided to an upscale outdoor seat deck with in-seat service. 

They revisit their seat indoors to enjoy dessert at intermission, returning to the seat deck for the rest of the performance for either the Calgary Stampede Rodeo or Evening Show, featuring the Cowboys Rangeland Derby Chuckwagon Races and Bell Grandstand Show.
