Downtown Pints & Patios Trail

Get out and explore Downtown Halifax with our curated "trails." Whether it's patio hopping, shopping 'til you drop, or a thirst to learn more about our city, there's something for everyone to enjoy in Downtown Halifax. 

Downtown Pints & Patios Trail

Enjoy a fun day in the sun, sampling the best food and drink that Downtown Halifax’s patios have to offer. AND yes! You can still enjoy the patios in the cooler weather. Just grab a jacket and a blanket, and enjoy the fresh outdoors in the best way - with a pint in your hand!

  • Begin your afternoon at Garrison Brewing Company at 1149 Marginal Road, and sample some craft beer brewed right on site at their Seaport location. Grab a seat on their large patio and order a flight of tasters. And don’t forget to check out their Garrison apparel before you leave.
  • Saunter down the Waterfront Boardwalk as you make your way to the Stubborn Goat Beer Garden – now that’s a view! Get a snack to eat (try their famous truffle fries), a cold drink and enjoy the ambience of the Waterfront.  
  • Snap a quick pic with The Wave. Post it to Instagram, and don’t forget to use #MeetMeDTHFX!
  • A little hill won’t hurt ya! Feel the burn as you climb Sackville Street on the way to Argyle Street
  • Walk down Argyle Street, a people-focused shared streetscape that is pedestrian only until the end of September. Pop into Biscuit General Store at 1661 Argyle Street and check out the latest trends.
  • Pick one of the extended patios on Argyle Street to enjoy a dinner. There are so many to choose from, including The Loose Cannon Scottish Public House (Scottish), Durty Nelly’s Irish Pub (Irish), Tokyo Roll (Japanese), Antojo Tacos + Tequilas (Mexican), and more.  
  • The sun is setting, and the music is turning up. End your night with a pint on Roxbury Urban Dive Bars new extended patio at 1743 Grafton Street.
