DAY 2:

  • Brunch & Browse: Head to Black Sheep for brunch, then enjoy a bit of window shopping in the Spring Garden Area and beyond.

Day 1

First things first: Treat Yourself!

There’s something so decadent about getting pampered before a night out, whether it’s a head-to-toe suite of services, or a simple mani-pedi, you’ll feel like a fresh new you by the time you head out for the evening.

Head to the The Ten Spot in the South End for a Detox Quickie Facial and a manicure before heading out on the town for the evening!

 

Dine in style with your squad

Nothing says luxury like a high-quality steak house, and lucky for you, there’s one right inside The Sutton Place‘s swanky hotel space.

Make dinner reservations at Chop Steakhouse & Bar for service and surroundings that pamper, featuring seasonal menus with the most succulent cuts of meat and fresh seafood – not to mention a wine list that’ll satisfy even the most discerning connoisseurs.

 

Wine and Unwind

Nothing pairs better with a good catch-up between friends than a fantastic wine list! Choose from one of the flights at Obladee – you may even find a new fave!

 

Where to Stay

Stay in style in the heart of the city at the brand new Sutton Place Hotel Halifax. Located right on Argyle street in the Nova Centre, fall asleep in their luxurious, gorgeously designed space with the twinkle of city lights right outside your window.

» Take advantage their special opening offer of $179 per night!

 

Day 2

Brunch & Browse

Revive yourself at Black Sheep Restaurant, where excellent chefs serve up one of the city’s most delicious brunches (and caesars!).

Next, do some shopping along Spring Garden Road and Downtown Halifax, before heading back to the hotel to get ready for your second night of entertainment.

We recommend squeezing in a rejuvenating massage at Life SalonSpa if time permits!
