Patio Season in Downtown Halifax

Patio Season in Downtown Halifax


It's patio season in Downtown Halifax! And with over 60 patios to choose from, you can dine al fresco on a different patio every day of the summer. 

AND did you know that patios are now dog-friendly? That's right. Fido can now accompany their owner to restaurant, bar, and cafe patios that are dog-friendly. A few things to remember when you bring your pooch to a patio:

  • ASK if your dog is allowed on the patio first - some patios may not be welcoming dogs yet, may only be able to accommodate so many dogs at one time, or may have designated dog-friendly areas.

  • Dogs are not allowed inside. (Does not apply to service dogs.)

  • Dogs are not allowed to eat but can drink water if bowl is brought by dog-owner.

  • Dogs are not allowed on furniture.

  • Clean up after your dog.

  • Unruly dogs and their owners may be asked to leave.

Let's all work together so everyone can dine safely and enjoy their patio experience. More info about dogs on patios here


*Patios may look different this year and some patios may not be open yet, so please be patient with us as we continue to update this page. We recommend checking the social and web sites of the businesses for opening info and hours before heading out.
