Gus’s Pub and Grill Smack dab at the centre of the North End (North and Agricola streets) the gritty Gus’s is a Hali institution.
Put on your high waisted denim cuts offs and plaid and bike (essential North End accessory) down to Gus’s for copious amounts of beer, punk shows and It Felt Like a Kiss (monthly dance party featuring “motown, doowop, sweet sweet soul” and plenty-o-queers).
Halifax is a historic city with the Celtic charm expected of Nova Scotia, overflowing with arts, culture, music and bars, so many bars.

Menz Bar Featuring the infamous make-out *ahem* “library” room at the back of the bar (there is a security camera back there, you’ve been forewarned), Menz also holds the weekly So You Think You’ve Got Talent hosted by local drag sweetheart Elle Noir.
The biggest mostly-lady-gay dance party outside of Pride, Bitch Fit parties have clever themes such as “Homo for the Holidays” and “But I’m a Cheerleader – Skool Gayz”.
Despite some Toronto lesbians telling me that there were like five queer women in Halifax, and they all lived in one house (note: I love you Toronto, but most Torontonians don’t know much about anything East of Montréal), there are oodles of queers in Halifax.
As Halifax is the biggest city in the Maritimes region of Canada, lots of queers from across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI make the pilgrimage to our seaside city.
The Company House is technically a live music venue and is a great place to catch intimate music, comedy or poetry show (featuring a slew of queer women performers).
However, it’s owned, staffed and frequented by queer ladies. The Co Ho hosts the queer “Retro Night” and “Heavy Petting” (listed below).
