Downtown Halifax Launches Brand New Website

Downtown Halifax Business Commission (DHBC) is very excited to announce the launch of our brand new website at

This new website is an evolutionary leap for DHBC, and for anyone looking to know what's going on in Downtown Halifax and among our 1,600 businesses, including restaurants and pubs, retailers, service providers, hotels, entertainment destinations, and more. If you're looking for events, deals and promotions, or simply to discover a new Downtown business or find the store hours for a familiar one, the new is for you. We developed it to be your go-to local Downtown Halifax tourism source online. Period.

Let's go on a quick tour.

Search for anything Downtown

The engine behind the new is the most detailed database of Downtown Halifax businesses and information on the web. If you need to find a Downtown business, look no further. Type in the business name -- or even just what they do -- into the big Search on the home page or by clicking the magnifying glass icon in the menu bar from anywhere on the website. If it's Downtown, you'll find it.

This website also gives Downtown businesses the ability to post their own Downtown events and specials. In short order, we are hoping becomes the definitive resource for events happening Downtown. As Downtown businesses begin to better learn how to use our new website (hey, they're busy!), we hope that the information we are able to share with the public continues to grow. In our opinion, so far, so good. Keep an eye on our Events page.

Easily build a list of your favourite Downtown businesses, events, and information

The Downtown Halifax "X" marks the spot!

You'll see the Downtown Halifax "X" throughout our new website. Simply click on the "X" to save a business, event, campaign, or news item, and you can see all of your saved destinations by clicking the blue and green "X" in the menu bar. Organize Downtown Halifax any way you want to!

Your Saved Destinations will remain saved for you on the computer you saved them at. If you want your Saved Destinations to follow you no matter what device you use, create a Downtown Halifax user account -- you'll be able to retrieve your Saved Destinations when you log back in from any device!

Never miss a beat! Introducing the new Downtown Halifax Happenings newsletter

To stay on top of everything going on Downtown including events, specials and promos, news, contests and campaigns, and everything else you might want to know about, create an account on and sign up for the Downtown Halifax Happenings newsletter. Every week we'll send you a snapshot of everything you need to know about what's going on Downtown.

Have fun and explore!

We hope you will cruise around our new website and discover some businesses or experiences Downtown that you might not have known about.

We are still working on ironing out the finishing touches, and the website will continue to evolve as businesses have the opportunity to update their profiles and add their events. In the meantime, we would love to hear your feedback. Please get in touch if you would like to make a comment about this website, or anything else. We'll be listening!

See you Downtown,
