As every Haligonian knows there aren't a ton of options when it comes to clubs in Halifax. Especially, considering the fact that most "clubs" here disguise themselves as a Bar and Grill. For the most part, you can walk into any place in Halifax with a dance floor and they're most likely playing Top 40 hits. Not that anything is wrong with that, but if you'd rather spend your night dancing like a waste to trap music, it can be kind of be hard to find the right club for you. 

Despite the fact that there are only a handful of clubs, many of them have some great feature nights that meet tons of different taste in music. Believe it or not but, Gus' Pub in the North End has one of the best Rap nights in Halifax, and is also a great place to reach if you like live Rock music... So don't stress, if you're tired of hearing Despacito play at the club, I've got you covered.
