Place as a location and interior of the place is very nice. But music and crowd just nightmare! I was very disappointed with the music, every time I go there, it is same type of music. I can not say old, because some old is gold, but songs they are playing there is just Ludacris.

Music is great we liked Friday night DJ (DXS) more than Saturday but both are really good. The Atmosphere/the club looks great, friendly bartenders, cheap drinks, cheap entrance ($3). Definitely a classier place than most other clubs DT, but I find it was way more classy a few years ago.

I'd be inclined to say that Pacifico is possibly the best night club in Halifax. Does best mean good? Not necessarily. It doesn't have much competition. Staff are super friendly in my many experiences. Drinks are very well priced (my highlights are the 3 for $11 jägerbombs & $4 singles) and cover is very acceptable at $3. Place seems new,... More

This could be a nice place to hangout. There's a dance floor, a billiards area and I think three separate bar areas but the music leaves much to be desired. The DJ played one genre (trance) and the atmosphere I didn't like too much, It seemed more like an arcade with low lighting and disco balls. The cover was $3... More

I used to love this place. It was my favourite club to go to, and always had the best music, the best layout, a really classy design, and everything you'd want from a dance club. It was usually a more mature crowd, not the typical drunk, 19 yo party scene. Now I'm not sure what's happened but every time I've... More

Upon arrival I was greeted by the Manager Mike and whisked through the back VIP entrance and taken down the elevator, we were introduced to a Bartender named Brittany who was amazing as I watched her sling drinks. The night was enjoyable, the People of Halifax are so considerate (You see I have a cane to assist me with my... More

A group of us came out to celebrate a friend's bday. First time attending a Paint Nite event. It was so much fun!! The host was very entertaining and helpful. A great night out for some food, drinks & art! Would definitely do it again and recommend friends & family as well.

I was pretty surprised to see a space of this magnitude in Halifax. Looks fairly modern and clean. If you're looking for a place to dance and drink, I'd say it's a good place to start the evening.

Nice club setup. Poor management and many underage people. Bouncers are selective with who gains entrance and allow some to skip line.
