Check out these tapas and small plates in Halifax

Food is made for sharing, and there's no better way to do that than with sharing plates. Not only do you get to have good food with good people (and probably good drinks), but you get to try different menu items and not commit yourself to just one choice. Plus, when there's as many craft beers to try as Halifax has to offer, you surely don't want to fill up on just food!

The Stubborn Goat Gastropub

1
1579 Grafton St, Halifax, NS B3J 2C3

If you’re feeling tapas for dinner tonight, the Stubborn Goat is definitely your best bet. Not only do they have lots of sharing plates, but they also have a large selection of specialty mac and cheese, not to mention more than 20 beers on rotating taps. The restaurant is large, the atmosphere is fun, and in the summer, the patio is a great place for an afternoon beer and bite.

The Press Gang

2
5218 Prince St, Halifax, NS B3J 0B1

When you go the Press Gang, you can fill up on oysters, or choose another series of small plates to share from their great menu, but whatever your choice, you won’t be disappointed. A higher-end restaurant, make the Press Gang your fancy night out on the town when you’re visiting the city, and finish off your meal with a night cap at one of the cocktail bars right around the corner.

Bitter End Martini Bar & Restaurant

3
1572 Argyle St, Halifax, NS B3J 2B3

The real specialty at Bitter End is the martinis, offering lots of flavours and changing their menu regularly to reflect seasonal selections and new recipes. But after enough martinis, you’ll surely be ready for a bite and their great choice of small plates will serve just perfectly. Share with a crowd, or keep them all to yourself, but between the food and drink, you definitely need to add Bitter End to your list of Halifax restaurants!

Onyx Dining Room & Cocktail Bar

4
1580 Argyle St, Halifax, NS B3J 2B3

If you’re a fan of jazz music and lounge chairs, coupled with small sharing plates and a great drinks selection, Onyx is the place for you. Situated in the bustling hub of the food and drink establishments of Halifax, you can start at Onyx for tapas and wine and then move on to any one of the other bars down the street. But really, you’ll probably find the music good enough and the hospitality kind enough that you won’t want to leave at all!

Lot Six Restaurant&Bar

5
1685 Argyle, Halifax, NS B3J 2B5

A recent addition to Halifax’s dining scene, Lot Six is located in the heart of the city’s restaurant action. Whether you just want oysters to share during their oyster happy hour, or you want to choose from the rest of their sharing menu, you’re sure to find something you’ll enjoy and can then wash it down with one of their specialty cocktails or many wine options.

Field Guide Restaurant

6
2076 Gottingen, Halifax, NS B3K 3A9

The concept here is simple: food is made to share. Featuring an extensive menu of small plates, complete with easy finger foods and fancier hot dishes, you’ll come here for the cocktails, but you’ll stay to try more food to share. Okay, maybe to try more cocktails too. Whatever the reason, when you’re with great company, in a great atmosphere, with great food and drink, you’ll have no reason not to enjoy yourself!

No matter how good your coffee is at home, sometimes it’s just nice to go out. Whether you’re grabbing your cup of joe on your daily morning commute, or are looking for a place where you can sit down on a Sunday morning and spend a few hours poring over the paper and catching up on emails, this list has you covered. Set the alarm early, because coffee is calling, and these places know how to do it right!
Whether it’s your first date, or your 21st, it’s nice to go some place a little different, and maybe completely new to celebrate your time together. If you’re new to the city, start at the top and work your way through 10 dates. If you’re a seasoned Haligonian, pick your favourite, get dressed up and head out on date night. In a city surrounded by the ocean and known for it’s craft beer, you can’t go wrong!
There’s nothing to start the weekend like a delicious brunch. And when it’s one that is made by someone else and there’s delicious drinks involved, it’s even better. Even if you’re a Halifax local, or a regular visitor to the city, you’ll be doing yourself a favour by checking out some of these delicious brunch spots!
