Tall Sips 2019
June 6 to June 30, 2019


Tall Sips is a citywide celebration of cocktail culture in Halifax.

We encourage everyone—salty sailors, visitors from afar and neighbourhood friends—to explore the city and enjoy the local refreshment scene. Grab a passport from the official participating locations listed here and sail your way through the pubs, patios and bistros that have made Halifax a legendary port of call.

For those souls of legal drinking age, specialty cocktails made for this week are priced at $8. No additional purchase is necessary to enjoy Tall Sips libations.

Tall Sips kicks off with the Drink Atlantic Cocktail Festival, June 6 to 8, 2019. Drink Atlantic features seminars and events led by special guest bartenders, hosted by The Clever Barkeep. Tickets available now.
