Halifax needs a gay bar again

Donation protected

Hello! Meet Ian MacLeod and Nick Close.

We eat, live and breathe Halifax. We are also here as part of the 2SLGBTQ+ community who do not have a place to call their own in this city. With a population of nearly 450,000 and a province of nearly 1,000,000 people, we are desperate for a space to call ours, a place that is fully queer owned and operated and a place we can be ourselves and service the community in a real and positive way. We are proposing a plan for a 3300sq/ft lounge/bar/nightclub and event space open late 2021/early 2022 in the heart of Downtown Halifax. We have secured a location and are ready to make this happen!

The concept will be elevated but accessible for everyone’s pocketbook, with the idea to have this as a destination for the 2SLGBTQ+ community. It will be a versatile, accessible space that can host a wide range of events like drag shows, open mics, karaoke, trivia, live music, Pride events and dancing as well as have a lounge space for cocktails and food. We believe that this project will offer quality in a clean, modern, and inclusive environment, and a welcomed addition to our growing city - specifically the downtown core.

The reality is banks can make or break dreams, and to make this dream come true we need your help! Please donate if this resonates with you and we will do everything to create something we can all be proud of.

It’s been long enough, Halifax. We need a house. Our house! It. Is. TIME!
