Forget about cosmos and fancy wine lists in Halifax — for the authentic Maritime nightlife experience, you need a frothy mug of ale. Nestled in the venerable stone walls of the Historic Properties on the Halifax waterfront, the Lower Deck has long benches and big tables, where strangers quickly become fast friends. This is the quintessential Maritime pub, easily evoking memories of jolly sailors and seasoned old salts. In the summer, its seaside patio is jammed every sunny day, as local bands play popular tunes, old drinking songs and seafaring ballads. Throughout the night, you’ll hear calls of “Sociable!” — that’s your cue to hoist a pint of India Pale Ale, clink glasses with your neighbor and have a swig.
