Good place for sports and music. The updated seats and washrooms have made it so much better than before.

The Scotia Bank Center has gone through many changes and I have performed there in 1984 as a Star with Ice Capades....Yikes but it was amazing as was the staff, concierge, food courts and such. Lovely venue which went through a renovation in the last year. Awesome. It also hosts the International Nova Scotia Tattoo which in Canada we celebrate... More

Love the people and availability of many types of food venues open even during practice.

This is a nice hockey arena located in downtown Halifax across from the Citadel. The arena looks pretty new. I was lucky while visiting Halifax for the first time, there was a hockey game between the Mooseheads the Huskies. I was at the Scotia Square Mall foodcourt and noticed there must be a hockey game that evening. It was convenient... More

Very few venues are open for basketball, and there is no room in the seats. You are touching elbows with the people beside you, your needs ( and I have short legs) are pulled up in front of... More
