Lord Beaverbrook Hotel 1970-06

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Cruising Places

Barrington Street 1970-08 along the naval dockyard is interesting between 10:00 pm to midnight - usually a few sailors looking for some fun. Just slow down and they’ll get the message if they are interested.

Black Rock Beach 1970-08 has potential but a good eye and a bit of aggressiveness are prerequisites.

Citadel Hill 1970-08 and along Sackville Street by the Hill. It is only safe if you are in a car, game folds at 1:00

Halifax Shopping Centre 1970-08 is your best bet.

Lord Nelson Hotel Shopping Arcade 1970-08 is where Halifax’s few hustlers hang out. It is known as a meat rack.

Public Gardens 1970-08 around 7 to 8:00 pm in summer is your best bet. Also try Sunday afternoons to meet some of the closely knit college crowd.

Scotia Square 1970-08 large shopping, business and housing centre.

Spring Garden Road 1970-08


The Candlelight Lounge 1970-08 spring garden Road is mixed but from Wednesday to Saturday it is completely gay.

Captain’s Table 1970-08 downstairs has lousy service, a cover charge and on weekends it is very crowded — mostly with drunken couples — male and female.

The Piccadilly Tavern 1970-08 1599 Grafton is a mixed tavern — combines college kids and some gays. It is definitely not a place to cruise, but gays receive no hassle.
