Bars on ice 

Baby, it's cold outside. Here are some places to knock 'em back after you lace up.

Oh, how we love The Oval. It's officially the highest concentration of smiling people in HRM. Finally, the Common is alive, as is the spirit of winter. And while we're talking are some great places to grab a drink or two after you've skated yourself silly.

Carefully cross the icy Common and be rewarded with a steaming mug of jane's homemade hot chocolate. Even better, try their butternut hot chocolate complete with a kick of amaretto and butterscotch schnapps to satisfy your sweet tooth and your freezing fingers.

Seasons by Atlantica

With renos freshly finished, this front-row, centre view of The Oval is looking pretty swanky. Warm up here or simply sit back and watch skating enthusiasts go round and round during their happy hour from 4:30-6pm daily. And keep your eyes peeled come February: Seasons will be in full-gear for the Games with a calendar full of events and specials.
