With the highest number of bars per capita in Canada, it’s no surprise that Halifax is known for its nightlife. But with so many amazing atmospheres to choose from deciding where to party can be overwhelming. But have no fear, from old favourites to new places, we’ve compiled a list of the most unique nightlife in the city.
There’s no better way to truly let loose in our port city than by taking your party to the open water.
