Dine in a Cabina Esterna at The Bicycle Thief
What exactly is a Cabina Esterna? In this case, they are the fully enclosed personal dining cabins located just outside the front door of The Bicycle Thief. Relax and dine in style with your ‘bubble’ inside one of the highly sought-after Cabina Esternas. They are available by reservation only for parties of four to have the unique winter dining experience for two hours. All the cabins are heated, ventilated, and are thoroughly cleaned between each seating. Blankets are available and washed after each use.
Double Date at Daily Grind’s Happy Hour and Comedy Night
Have some fun right after work when you meet up for happy hour at The Daily Grind! You can enjoy drink specials in their safe, clean, and cozy environment from 5pm-7pm daily. Specials include $4 spirits, $5 wine (5oz), and $1 off craft beer draft taps. Find out when their next comedy night is so you can enjoy some local laughs while you cheers to winter.
Enjoy Takeout and Bubbly at Home After a Waterfront Walk
The crisp, fresh, winter air feels good when you’re walking along the Halifax waterfront, seeing how beautiful our city is, even in the winter! After a nice walk and talk with your date, order some takeout pizza from Ristorante a Mano or dumplings from Little Oak and warm up with a nice meal. While that’s being prepared, pop into Bishop’s Cellar to pick up a bottle of sparkling wine that would pair well with your takeout at home.
Treat Yourself to a Spa Night at Home
A date night in pajamas and cozy slippers can be fun at home! Stock up on skincare supplies from Moon Moon Cosmetics such as face wash, moisturizers, masks, and hair treatments for a spa night at home. Add some takeout and Netflix and you’re set for the evening.
Sip Hot Cocktails Al Fresco at the Fire & Ice Bar
If you’ve ever said “I wish there were fancy HOT cocktails we could enjoy somewhere in the winter”, then you’re in luck! The Fire & Ice Bar at The Bicycle Thief is serving very cold Champagne and hot cocktails like hot toddies and spiked hot chocolate under the stars (and heaters) Monday-Saturdays from 4pm-10pm.
