Pógue Fadó is an Irish Pub & Restaurant at the major downtown shopping street. They have either the TV on or life music (the local roulating club circuit). Atmosphere is excellent and friendly waitresses.
In the back is a small stage and dance floor. Up front are tables seperated by headboards to create some privacy.
Pogue Fado is an Irish pub on Barrington Street (downtown Halifax). I went there twice and really liked it. The interior looks like a typical pub, and the service is good. It can get crowded and noisy later in the evening, but that's one of the charms of a pub! On some nights they also have live music, though I didn't stick around for it.
Favorite Dish: I had the fish and chips one night, and the chicken strips with fries the next night. I liked both meals, and it wasn't too expensive. And of course, being in Halifax, I had to have Keith's beer along with it!
Irish themed Bar/Restaurant. They serve good Guinness here, and thats about it.
If you order anything with chips (fries) they come really heavily salted, so be sure to tell them no salt, I was there a few times and they had ran out of Keiths, the best local beer you can get. If you want an Irish themed bar, try The Old Triangle instead.
