The sun is shining, the city is beginning to re-open, and patio season is upon us. We know you can’t wait to get out and enjoy everything downtown Halifax has to offer this summer — and one of the best things about the city is its incredible selection of restaurants, bars, and pubs.
The only thing better than enjoying a cold drink and some great food in the sun is saving a little cash while you’re doing it, so we’ve rounded up the best Happy Hour deals in the city into our new Happy Hour Loop. The next time you are heading out be sure to check the loop first to see where you can find all the best offers in town. Take a peek and learn more about some of our happy hour partners here.
Spring Garden Area
Le Bistro by Liz
Located on South Park Street opposite Victoria Park, Le Bistro by Liz is a gorgeous French bistro with an impressive menu and an equally impressive wine selection. Stop by for UnWINE’d Wednesdays for 8oz glasses of wine for the price of 5oz glasses of wine… or pop in for brunch between 11.00am and 3.00pm on Saturdays and Sundays and receive a free drink with every entrée!
On Brenton Street, you’ll find Primal Kitchen, a chef-owned and operated restaurant with a focus on delivering creative dishes made with fresh, high-quality ingredients — plus, they’ve got a constantly changing selection of local craft beers on tap! Drop in between 4.00pm and 6.00pm every day for $6 glasses of beer and wine. Pair with some of their amazing bar snacks.
The Arms Public House
Life is a little different these days and we’ve all been there: it’s Sunday, the sun’s out, and you want to have a beer in the backyard but… the NSLC is shut. The Arms Public House has got you covered! Take Happy Hour home and order a meal from them on Sundays to receive 15% off beer and wine purchases.
The Roxbury Urban Dive Bar
It’s Happy Hour all day, every day at the Roxbury. Heading in for lunch? Check out their $6 grub list and choose a $6 beer to enjoy with your meal. You’ll find there’s something for everyone on their menu — from wraps to burgers to salads to curries. Going out a little later in the evening? Try one of their $5 cocktails or $5 shotties instead.
The Stubborn Goat Gastropub
It’s the weekend, the sun is shining, and you’re in search of the perfect brunch spot. Look no further than the Stubborn Goat Gastropub, which boasts a gorgeous patio and a beautiful indoor space for those days when the Halifax fog creeps in. Plus, on Saturdays and Sundays, their award-winning Caesars are just $4 each before 3.00pm!
Beer lovers, rejoice — Gahan House is offering $15 patio pitchers all summer long between 12.00pm and 5.00pm every single day. Looking to try some great oysters? Pop in between 4.00pm and 6.00pm (or after 9.00pm) for half pints and half shells: ten oysters and two half pints of beer for just $30. Catch some live music here on Wednesdays and Thursdays too!
East of Grafton Tavern
If you haven’t tried East of Grafton’s famous Damn Fancy Nachos yet, you’re missing out! Featuring a chic indoor area and a sunny outdoor patio, this is a great spot to stop and enjoy some bar snacks and drinks. Between 4.00pm and 6.00pm every day, bar snacks are half price and glasses of beer and wine are $2 off.
Antojo Tacos + Tequila
Who doesn’t love Taco Tuesday? Tacos are $4 each all day at Antojo on Tuesdays, and they’ve got something for everyone. We highly recommend the Baja fish tacos — and the crispy cauliflower tacos are the perfect vegetarian option. On Mondays, classic margaritas are $6 all day: sip them on the outdoor patio or inside surrounded by wonderful decor.
The Barrington Steakhouse
For a beautiful dining experience in elegant surroundings, look no further than The Barrington Steakhouse. Offering charcuterie boards, specialty steaks, and a hidden gem of a patio, this is a spot worth checking out when you’re planning a special night out. Every day from 4.00pm to 6.00pm, stop in for Sip and Tip for six oysters and a glass of bubbly for just $20.
Pickford & Black
Stunning seafood dishes, handcrafted ales, refreshing cocktails, and a waterfront patio to enjoy it all on. Pickford & Black is a stylish seaside restaurant with some of the best ocean views in Halifax. 2.00pm to 5.00pm, Monday through Friday, stop by for Harbour Hours and enjoy $6 drinks and snacks in the sunshine.
