Bars & Cafes



The Carleton is located right at the corner of Argyle and Prince Street, in the heart of beautiful downtown Halifax. This restaurant has an extensive menu that specializes in American cuisine and seafood; don't forget to try out the BBQ Ribs and Maple Blackened Salmon which have been loved by their regulars. There's also a variety of drinks and spirits to choose from at the well-stocked bar at this place. The Carleton hosts a large number of live music performances, and hence is a popular spot for music lovers in the city. Since the restaurant is located in a residential building, the music tries to stay away from the rock n roll type sounds, and is more inclined towards softer tunes. This place also serves as a launch pad for emerging talent, and is known to encourage budding artists.
