We have answers to many Frequently Asked Questions on this page.

Drinkle3 is rated by as “Walker’s/Biker’s Paradise”

Tenants can visit eleven restaurants and two coffee shops without crossing a street. The building is located one block from the central bus mall, three blocks from river trails, and a mile from the U of S. The lower level of the building has 15 shops including Filipino confectionary, vintage clothing, yoga studio, new age, tailor, dance studio, vintage jewelry shop, hat maker, hair salon, goldsmith, watch repair, and hobby shop.

Many of our mall merchants both work and also live in the building. Our newly renovated Salon Level is a community of personal service entrepreneurs including hair stylists, lash techs, tattoo, therapy, massage, and artists.

Community Initiatives

In 2007 the Drinkle Building received a Cultural Capitals grant, through the City of Saskatoon and Heritage Canada, to install a 72 foot tall artwork featuring portraits of seven city founders. The artwork was produced by Henry Vanseters and can be seen on the north wall of the building. We also received a grant that year to produce a photo exhibit detailing the history of the Drinkle Building and its founder J. C. Drinkle. That exhibit is available to be viewed during business hours in the lower level mall.  Over the years we have sponsored various community initiatives including DrinkleFest Better Block Party, Milden Food Project, and Mendel’s Murals.

Learn more about our Initiatives on the Community Initiatives page.


Unfortunately, we have no 24/7 Parking spots available, however we can arrange after hours parking next to the building for $25/mo that includes weekdays 5pm to 9am and all day Saturday and Sunday.

Close to everything fun

The quiet concrete building is surrounded by action, with dozens of shops and restaurants, and even the bus mall, all within a one block radius. Walk another block to get to river trails, Scotia Theatre, Midtown Plaza, and YMCA. We are located 6 blocks from Riversdale shops, restaurants and the Farmer’s Market, and a mile from the U of S campus. Our lower level Drinkle Mall is home to 18 shops including hair salons, tattoo artists, art galleries, vintage clothes and coffee, artisan products, locksmith, goldsmith, coinsmith, jewelery, and electronics. Many of our mall merchants work and live in the building, adding to the sense of community and safety. Our building is also home to D3 Salon Level, a newly renovated workspace for personal services entrepreneurs.

Sustainability and place-making

At Drinkle3 we believe that context is the key to sustainability. Old downtown buildings like ours can play an important role in countering the negative impact of urban sprawl by leveraging the tools at our disposal such as public art, heritage, bikes, transit, community, and fun. That’s why over the years we have sponsored initiatives such as Drinkle Art Wall, Bridge City Underground, Saskatoon CarShare Coop, Saskatoon Cycles, DrinkleFest Better Block Party, Milden Food Project, Mendel’s Murals, Children’s Discovery Museum, tenant get-togethers, and more. In 2007 we received a grant to produce a photo exhibit detailing the history of the Drinkle Building and its founder J. C. Drinkle. That exhibit is available to be viewed during business hours in the lower level mall.
