The Seahorse is moving to Hell

One of Nova Scotia's oldest bars is leaving Argyle to shack up with The Marquee

UPDATED: The last show at The Seahorse's Argyle Street location will be December 27.

Last month when we chatted with The Seahorse Tavern's owner Victor Syperek he made it clear that the iconic bar wasn't closing, and any rumours that it was being kicked out of its current location at 1665 Argyle Street were completely false. Maybe we couldn't hear him over the huge sigh of relief from all of you Horsepower-drinking Seahorse regulars, or maybe he forgot to mention it, but it turns out the bar is actually moving. To Gottingen Street!

Syperek announced earlier this week that the iconic downtown bar would in fact be relocating to the north end, shacking up with fellow live music fixture the Marquee Ballroom (2037 Gottingen Street) and taking over its downstairs space, known to many as Hell's Kitchen. Word is it'll be bringing much of the Seahorse decor that you know and love with it.

Our calls to Syperek for more juicy details on the move went unanswered. We'll keep you posted on any new info (opening date, concert listings and the sort) when we have it.
