Rush to nowhere: 4 places to drink in Dartmouth 

Where to go for Pre- and post-concert drinks for Summer Rush at Alderney Landing

We know you're going. Nic, Nat, Tiff and Chrys are bringing their baby doll faces to Dartmouth for Summer Rush this Saturday, and you just can't miss them. So instead of inundating Alderney Landing and leaving it lonely afterwards, why don't you skip that first ferry back and have a drink at one of the fine bars in the area? While there are plenty to choose from, here's a list of four that are within arm's reach. Be careful, though---the last ferry leaves at 11:30pm. You might just have to gather your friends and take a cab home. –Holly Gordon

Celtic Corner

69 Alderney Drive

If it's not pouring Saturday, don't waste any time heading to Celtic Corner's rooftop patio (in photo above). It boasts the best views of Halifax, Guinness on tap and delicious pub food to feed the concert-goer in you.

Nectar Social House

62 Ochterloney Street

Best Restaurant winner for Dartmouth in The Coast's Best of Food issue, this classy option is just a newbie in the restaurant world. Wish it a happy second year by whetting your hoarse whistle on its protected back deck.

Ducky's on the Waterfront

Alderney Landing

This restaurant is almost in your way when looking to get to Halifax, so show it some love and watch the late-night rain out over the harbour.

Whiskey's Lounge

27 Portland Street

Have a seat in the lounge instead, and think about the dangerous show you just watched.
