The Carleton is still closed to gathering – but we have music online and food & drink at home

[28-May-20 6:00 pm] Exciting news that restaurants and bars are permitted to open Friday June 5! And it looks like Argyle Street will be pedestrian-friendly all summer! Because The Carleton is not only a restaurant but also (not permitted so far) a lounge and a live music venue, we have a LOT to sort out and prepare. June 5 may not bring The Carleton’s familiar inside service… but it will mark our 2nd week of curbside pickup!

[19-May-20 10:00 am] We are gearing up ‘The Carleton at Home‘! Starting Thursday May 21, order online from our weekly food and drink menu until 3pm Tuesday and pickup 1685 Argyle curbside 4-7pm Friday.

[10-May-20 9:45 pm] We’ve had to postpone another HUFF brunch with Carleton Stone and special guests, so are facing the music (ha!) and saying so long to May for onsite shows. However, don’t forget our Wed and Sat Live at The Carleton streams featuring 4-song sets by local artists. Many thanks to Mark Robins (Halifax Presents contributing editor) and Jon Cornwall (audio man extraordinaire) for their ongoing efforts to harness Facebook Live technology to deliver The Carleton’s great sound.

[06-May-20 1:00 pm] Hope you’re all staying safe, sane, and healthy. Missing our team, guests, artists and the great experiences we share at The Carleton!

[20-Apr-20 4:00 pm] Acknowledging at least another 2 weeks off the grid.

[06-Apr-20 7:00 pm] Are you keeping track? We recognize that April in person isn’t going to happen. However, keep your eye on Live At The Carleton, your FB live local musician fix every Wed and Sat at 7 pm.

[30-Mar-20 9:30 pm] The sign on the Carleton door now reads “closed until further notice” but we are still managing moment to moment. Today we’ve retreated at least til April 17.

[20-Mar-20 11:00 am] Jill Barber has just cancelled her east coast tour. New dates will be announced shortly and all previously purchased tickets will be honoured. We at The Carleton vow to remain optimistic, so looking to re-open on Thursday April 9 with local 80s superband Maximum Overdrive.

[16-Mar-20 4:30 pm] I knew there would be updates, but not so soon, nor so drastic.

In light of artist cancellations, staff availability, and the whole Halifax downtown scene slowly shutting down, we have decided that it is best and safest for all to close The Carleton for a few weeks.

If the world cooperates, we’ll be open again on Thursday April 9.

Thanks and big love (from 6 feet away!) to our team who have been thoughtful and patient and super-sanitized during these tough times.

To our many supporters: listen to those playlists, dream of Carleton frites, and we’ll see you as soon as permitted!
