It don't matter if your going to a concert, mooseheads, sports, or tattoo it always fun at the scotiabank centre. It is the perfect size place for halifax and in the perfect location. The one flaw I have is parking is not always the easiest thing to find. The best idea is take the bus or leave a few hours... More

This is a great venue for all events. Best in Atlantic Canada!! Tattoo hockey basketball skating concerts public events and they're all great seats. Connected by walkways and tunnels to Old Halifax the Downside Seats are soft and old, food is bad and they pour short draughts!! Where's the easy parking?

I've been to 200+ concerts, in a variety of cities, in variety of venues both small and large and this is by far the worst venue of them all. I've been to approximately 10 concerts here and the acoustics are atrocious with the sound hitting you from all sides. The seats are uncomfortable. The sight lines are horrible in the... More

Have attended several Tattoos and curling competitions here. Comfortable seating and excellent views. Can avoid climbing hills if staying at Cambridge (excellent packages). Lots of stairs to washrooms!

Stayed nearby and was able to walk there easily. Located near the Citadel and easily found. If walking from the waterfront it is an uphill battle for us old folks. Food available inside like any venue place - expensive. Depending upon on the venue it may be appropriate for you and your family.

The Centered is so central to the city. Easy access. It is a great size to accommodate large events. So excited about the Scotia Bank partnership and all its reno's to follow

Just attended an event at the Metro Centre for the first time. It was smaller than I expected. Prices for drinks and food were the same as any large venue in Ottawa, Montreal or Toronto - over priced.

Located in the centre of downtown Halifax, this is the home to the local junior hockey team and basketball team, pays host to International Tattoo and many concerts throughout the year. It is the same building as the World Trade & Convention Centre and is connected with Scotia Square (including the parking lot), Prince George Hotel, Delta Barrington, Purdy's Wharf,... More

This is a nice location but it is dated. I believe there is plans to build a new facility and it is much needed.
