Nice martini bar

Dropped in here on a Saturday night around 8pm, and there were only a few people, but it started to fill up as the evening went on. The average age of the people there were probably 20's to early 30's. We left at about 11:30pm and it was pretty packed by then. Great spot to go have an evening... read more

I am not a trouble maker by far. 25 year old adult. Having a great time downtown halifax until we decided to go to the bitter end. I had gone there before and the lychee martini is delicious. Bouncer on duty was on a severe power trip. Apparently he had never seen a Floridan Drivers License before and because I... More

My husband and I were on our last evening of our vacation (Wed Aug 7) and thought the small plate idea a nice thing to have. We ordered 4 things ... crab fritters, pineapple nachos, corned beef, and the brie & proscuitto on toast points. The service was good and we thought the food good as well. But, 8 or... More

A great place to have a Martini. I had a good selection of Martinis and particularly the Champagne based ones. The choice of food is great. they even have discount offers on certain days of the week. The staff was enthusiastic and interactive.

The bitter End is my favorite spot in Halifax to go for a light meal and drinks. I have never been to a bar/restaurant with such a large drink selection, and the drinks and amazing. With so many to choose from it would take forever to try them all, but I have tried many and none of been anything less... More

Great place to go with friends after work, food is great, nachos are even pretty tasty for a Martini bar. If you plan to visit on a weekend, get there early or you'll be standing and pushing through crouds all night. Martinis are a wide variety, but add up on the bill quickly.

A great cozy Martini lounge with excellent food and drinks, but the service is going down hill. Ive been a few times over the last few months and every time, is becoming more and more disappointing. The food choices are great and very tasty, I have yet to have a bad meal. The Drink and wine list works well and... More

I've been to The Bitter End many times and thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. I do appreciate the $4 appetizers on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (with a beverage purchase of course) I however just left tonight dissatisfied. Our server was quite blunt and informed us that it is only one appetizer per beverage. When I asked if this had recently... More

I only go there on Tuesdays and Wednesday nights where they have their $4 appetizer special. So far I have tried all their appetizers and they are all good! My favorite are the nachos and the goat cheese dip though. You get plenty of food for just $4. Almost 99% of the times the service was great with the exception... More

Anyone whio gives the Bitter End Martini bar a bad review, has no idea what a martini bar is supposed to be. The bitter End is a fantastic spot if you are a martini drinker like myself. The atmosphere alone is enough to make me return over and over again. They have a large menu consisting of a variety of... More
