It’s patio season in Downtown Halifax! And we are just going to call it, we are the official patio capital of Nova Scotia. With over 80 patios (and counting!), you can pretty much dine al fresco on a different Downtown Halifax patio every day of the summer. And did you know that pet dogs are now allowed on patios? Here are a few things to remember before you take your pooch to a patio:
- ASK if your dog is allowed - some patios may not be able to accommodate dogs.
- 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.
- Follow the specific rules laid out by the food & drink establishment you are visiting.
More info about dogs on patios here.

For more information, check the website(s) of the patio(s) you are interested in visiting below before heading out. Look for a dog paw for dog-friendly patios (we are still in the process of updating all the patios that are dog friendly. Call ahead to confirm if your dog is allowed).
