Members-only Bars: private drinking in Halifax.

New year's resolution: join a new club. At most of Halifax's members-only bars, becoming a member is simple as can be. Here's four you can join.

Charlie's Club, aka the Cunard Street Press Club.

Resolutes Club

Membership is $10/year. Members get access to free pool, free darts, shuffleboard and the ultimate giveaway: occasional free drink tickets! Two members are needed to represent newbies, but don't cause a ruckus and you can count yourself in. You can visit three times before signing up and are always sure to find a comfortable community atmosphere with a mix of people.

5461 Inglis Street, 492-9771

Locas Bar and Billiards

Membership is $24/year ($12 students/military) and members can bring in four guests. You can play pool, cribbage, darts or relax in a booth with some friends to chat or watch a game.

5430 Doyle Street, 423-2522

Charlie's Club

For $1/year, membership is hardly going to burn a hole in your pocket. Members can bring two guests to this laidback community pub where "Everyone knows your name." Feel free to order in food and don't forget to play a few rounds of pool---at 50 cents a game, you're sure to brush up on your billiard skills.

5580 Cunard Street, 492-1401

Dooly's

Membership at this members-only Dooly's is $17 for life. You get a free hour of bowling (which costs $10.95 regularly) and 10 percent off at all other Dooly's locations. Members can bring in up to four guests. And for every 10 hours of pool, members get one free hour.

20 Farnham Gate Road, 443-6623
