If what we've heard today is true, the Halifax club scene is about to change. Big time. This afternoon the wonderful world of the internet was buzzing with word that The Palace Nightclub (1721 Brunswick Street) was done for. Local promoter and maker of fun times, The New Halifax, was told that the club was closed as of today, with no firm plans of re-opening, renovations or a change of hands.

At this point, there's been no confirmation of a closure from The Palace. Cross your fingers, and stay tuned for updates.


Late Tuesday rumours were confirmed that the legendary nightclub and prime live music venue had, in fact, permanently closed. In a statement, Michel and Marcel Khoury said: "We are always keen to recognize demographic changes and industry trends and as a result have decided to renovate the current location into a new and unique concept. We are excited about the new venture and optimistic about Downtown Halifax's future." They expect the project to be completed by September. Until then raise your Jägerbombs and join me in remembering (and forgetting) over three decades of late nights, and early mornings, at the Palace.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
