Had such a fun night at Bitter End a couple weeks ago. Went after we went to supper at A Mano. Got there early, 1030pm or so... ordered a few bottles of wine & enjoyed the evening ! First time going when it wasn't completely packed & ordering full bottles of wine which I didn't realize you could do !... More

1/2 price martini's and $7 appies! How can you go wrong! Excellent food, fantastic drinks! Customer service was great! They had 2 stag parties of 16 & 12 come in while we were there & they handled things fantastically 👍🏻 Best spot to go on a late Saturday afternoon to get your evening started! 🍸

A friend and I visited for Martini Monday, both of us have been previously. This time we went a bit early for food and martinis, before the busy crowd came around 11pm. As it started to get busier, we tried to get our waitress to come over and give us our bills. We tried for about 20 minutes before we... More

Reviews said: "Classy Martini Mondays?" No. "Nice spot for a date." No. "Fun place to hang out." Only if you enjoy sour faces who become offended when you repeatedly ask them to, "Please not sit on my coat." "A classy place with a bit mature crowd." Doubtful...did noone ever notice the teams of offensive drunk girls carelessly pushing like they... More

Enjoyed the haddock fish and chips. Friendly staff and very good food. Right downtown so easy walking as parking in Halifax is limited.

My fiancé and I came here during our Valentine's Day night out, and weren't disappointed! I had two of the martinis and he had some draught beer. Beer selection isn't too extensive (they specialize in shaken drinks), but was still a really fun night. The music is exceptional - it doesn't seem to be much of a "dancing" bar, but... More

The Bitter End is nestled in a busy block of inviting bars and restaurants about a 10 minute walk from downtown's Hollis Doubletree Hotel. My twenty-somehting year old daughter and I had dinner across the street at the Argyle, and stopped by the Bitter End for after dinner drinks before the 8 p.m. happy hour ended. Excellent, tasty martinis -... More
