The Carleton Music Bar & Grill
(1685 Argyle Street) is temporarily closing its doors for renovations. 

According to a press release, the Carleton will shut down on December 22. It will briefly re-open for its In The Dead of Winter Festival shows from January 18-20, but the official re-opening won’t take place until February 8.

These renovations come several months after Karen Spaulding, president of Metaworks Inc., acquired ownership of the bar. “It has been a whirlwind and a joy to move from long-time patron to owner of the Carleton,” she says in the release. She goes on to describe the renos as a “substantial facelift” which will give the venue a more modern feel while still staying true to its 250-year history.

The re-opening will also mean extended hours for the Carleton in order to accommodate weekday lunches and weekend brunch, along with a year-round patio where you can enjoy it all.

For a couple weeks at this time of year, the blooming cherry trees on Park Avenue make for the ultimate photo backdrop in the city. But what’s the most photogenic location year-round in HRM?
