Walk or bus to Michael’s for artsy, hipster-y North Enders, live music and Sunday and Wednesday Karaoke (one of the best in Hali) with the fanny-pack sporting Lori the Guy.
Michael’s Bar is also home to the semi-regular lady focused queer dance party, “Bitch Fit”.
This sweaty dance party features disco, house and punk and is for (according to their Facebook page): “Homo’s, Queers, Transfolk, Lezbros, Stone Butches, Hard Femmes, Genderqueers, Bar Stars and Heteros.” Co-founded by Adept Tatoo’s Amber Thorpe, Bitch Fit is a semi-regular queer dance party held at Michael’s Bar and Grill.
The biggest mostly-lady-gay dance party outside of Pride, Bitch Fit parties have clever themes such as “Homo for the Holidays” and “But I’m a Cheerleader – Skool Gayz”.
The always-packed event is held at the Halifax Commons.
Gus’s Pub and Grill Smack dab at the centre of the North End (North and Agricola streets) the gritty Gus’s is a Hali institution.
Put on your high waisted denim cuts offs and plaid and bike (essential North End accessory) down to Gus’s for copious amounts of beer, punk shows and It Felt Like a Kiss (monthly dance party featuring “motown, doowop, sweet sweet soul” and plenty-o-queers).
Despite some Toronto lesbians telling me that there were like five queer women in Halifax, and they all lived in one house (note: I love you Toronto, but most Torontonians don’t know much about anything East of Montréal), there are oodles of queers in Halifax.
As Halifax is the biggest city in the Maritimes region of Canada, lots of queers from across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI make the pilgrimage to our seaside city.
