Niche isn’t a sports bar so much as a swanky wine-and-dine experience featuring sports. (And, if you like, free entrance to next-door Pacifico, one of the city’s hottest dance clubs.) It’s a great choice for anyone looking for great food, interesting cocktails, maybe a breezy patio in summer – and a TV that’s always showing the most popular game at any given time. Head over between 4 pm and 6:30 p. for happy hour, featuring well-priced glasses of house wine and half-priced appetizers.
Niche Lounge sits just below street level at the base of Spring Garden and Barrington. This place gets props for having some of the best specials in town! Happy hour is every day from 4 p.m. to close (so basically all the time!) This is a magical time when well shots and 18 oz draft beers are $3.25 and house wine is $4! Select appetizers are half price from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. This patio is a go-to for those on a budget. There is even a big screen out on the patio where big sporting events are shown.
From 4:00 pm onwards, every single day of the week, Niche offers $4 glasses of house wine. Welcome to Nova Scotia alcohol pricing! They also offer both a red and white from Nova Scotia’s most up-and-coming winery, Luckett, which you have to try if you’re visiting the region. Niche’s patio is quite the happenin’ spot in the summer, so I would recommend grabbing a glass and sitting outside if the weather permits.
