New Halifax Shopping Centre Layout, Growlers in the Dartmouth Burbs


Happy Summer!

Growlers in eastern Dartmouth,  Harvest Wines in the Baker Dr. Sobeys now has 4 taps that rotate. Already they have featured beers from great NS craft breweries, including Big Spruce, North Brewing, Sea Level, Good Robot, Boxing Rock, Uncle Leo’s, Hell Bay, and Tatamagouche.

Yarmouth’s Sip Cafe opened a 2nd location in Meteghan.

CEED, is having an Entrepreneur Day Camp for grades 4-7, great idea if you have tomorrows business owner on your hands.

Looks like the corner of Queen and Spring Garden is getting prepped to be a patio for Rougue’s Roost, I wonder if it will carry the Gahan name (who purchased Rogues last year)


If I find myself in Eastern Passage, Fudgy Chicks always make it home with me

Uptown Girl on Portland is moving to Windmill Rd.and combining with Red Rooster Antiques in the building where TK’s Carpet is under the New bridge. July 1

The Tim Hortons in the DAL Tupper building is being replace by a Starbucks.

La Piazza the new wood fired pizza restaurant on Chebucto Rd. where it meets North is now open. LOts of positive feedback

The new floor plan for Halifax Shopping Centre, 2 large 2 Level stores on 2nd Level and new food court, where the bowling alley used to be.




  1. La Piazza’s pizza oven isn’t actually wood fired. It runs on propane, and they put a single log over at the side presumably for the smell or smoke etc.

      • Because they’re adding a big new piece on the back of the mall, West End Mall/Mumford Professional Centre and the Bay West Centre are renovating to!!

        • Yeah what used to be the office space above the mall at that end is being converted so yes it’s sort of a 3rd floor. I hear it will be H&M and Zara

          • It’s now confirmed that Zara will be one of the tenants! And since they announced that they were getting a major expansion they said H&M will either take the former food court or a space in the former office Tower 1!

  2. H&M and Zara are both now confirmed for the 2 new 2 story spaces in the former Office Tower 1. Office Tower 2 is now known as Halifax Place. The new food court Terrace and new glass elevator & escalators have been open for nearly a year now already! All kinds other new tenants have also opened since the renovations began. The new office tower above the Bay West Centre (Ex-Hudson’s Bay) is now open. And the renovations are going really well and are getting close to completion!
