Feeling trapped on Thursday nights? If getting up on stage is your thing, or you simply enjoy listening to live music, a sure-fire way to escape the doldrums is to head down to Kingsland to the Atlantic Trap & Grill for its open mic night. Hosted by Nova Scotiables, the acoustic fun runs from 9 pm to midnight. Registration begins at 9 pm. Equipment is provided, though musicians can bring their own guitars. All music styles are welcome.
An East Coast bar and eatery, Atlantic Trap & Gill has a contagious party vibe. The clubby Southeast spot presents an acoustic open-mic evening on Thursdays and live Celtic and East Coast bands on the weekends. The food is good and the service is friendly. You’re going to sing along and tap your toes, dance and party. You’ll end up saying, “I don’t want this night to end!” It features a modest cover charge.
Transport yourself to Canada’s East Coast nightly at Atlantic Trap & Gill Pub. Folk and Celtic bands as well as kitchen-party-style open-mic performers provide a rockin’ jig-and-reel soundtrack. The food menu leans to seafood dishes such as mussels and fish and chips, but also includes Canadian Maritime pub-grub favourites such as the Halifax donair. All marry well with East Coast beer.
