Patio Season in Downtown Halifax

Patio Season in Downtown Halifax


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 70 patios (and counting!), you can dine al fresco on a different patio in Downtown Halifax every day of the summer.

AND did you know that pet dogs are now allowed on patios? That's right, your dog can now accompany you to a restaurant, bar, or cafe patio that is dog-friendly. A few things to remember when you bring 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 that you are visiting.

*Patios may look and be operating differently this year. As we continue to update this page, we recommend checking the social & web sites of individual businesses for opening info and hours before heading out.
