The Watch That Ends The Night
The Watch That Ends the Night is a mid-century restaurant and cocktail bar, rarefied yet fun and approachable, overlooking the Halifax Harbour from downtown Dartmouth. We take our name from the eponymous 1958 Hugh MacLennan novel, with our aesthetic being inspired by can-lit paperbacks of the ’50s and ’60s.
We are focused on advancing Canadian cuisine through inventive dishes and an extensive in-house curing, fermenting, and preserves program focused on seafood, aged meats, and the best seasonal produce Nova Scotia has to offer.
Our ambitious cocktail and wine list is ever evolving with the goal of being as thought-provoking as it is delicious.
We’re a versatile space: you can enjoy an all-night feast with your loved ones or just grab a cocktail with a good book in hand.
