The Carleton Music Bar & Grill

Casual Canadian cuisine in the heart of downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia. The Carleton is also one of Canada's premiere 'listening rooms' and has featured a who's-who of the Canadian (and international) music scene.

The daring (darling/bold/goofy/cuckoo) venture of MuchMusic pioneers Mike Campbell & Mike Rhodes (Mike & Mike's Excellent X-Canada Adventures, MuchEast, Going Coastal), the Carleton has proven to be a huge success, claiming Music Nova Scotia's "Venue of the Year" four times (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012) and the current holder of the same award from the East Coast Music Association (ECMA).

A favourite watering hole for locals, and a must-visit for music fans (as well as anyone who likes good food and swell drinks in an adult environment). The Carleton Music Bar & Grill just might be your Haligonian hangout but you'll have to visit to see for yourself...
