R.I.P. – Pogue Fado


Well folks, it’s another dark day for Barrington Street and Downtown Halifax’s bar scene. Effective immediately, the Pogue Fado has closed up shop, citing the growing difficulties in the business environment.

This announcement comes via the Pogue’s Facebook page ( http://ow.ly/kxZ5p ). According to @poguefado – Monday all over again! Monster Mugs on sale tonight from 9 until close! 32 oz of your favourite beer on tap! – So it appears this decision is coming as quite the shock to staff and patrons alike. Dark days for Downtown again. Let’s hoist our beers for one last Sociable!
