Hockey night in Halifax

Where best to watch Sidney Crosby work out his groin injury for the start of the NHL season? Here are four sports bars where you can nurse a beer and watch the NHL season openers.


Bubba Ray's Sports Bar

You have to raise your beer to this place: There's a high-def TV in the men's washroom. Thirty-one other TVs adorn the bar proper, with 20 digital boxes to go around. The kitchen's open until 1am, so you can order up those wings well into overtime play.

5650 Spring Garden Road, 405-4344

Oasis Pub & Eatery

This basement sports bar is putting on 40-cent ribs Tuesdays and Wednesdays for sports watchers, as well as its regular 30-cent wings Thursdays and Saturdays. The bar's jumbo projector and seven big screen TVs will carry the NHL Centre Ice package, along with $10 pitchers of Bud all day.

Boston Pizza (Granville Market)

Wednesday nights are hockey nights at BP, with hat and jersey giveaways, plus a ballot to enter a Stanley Cup Finals ticket draw if you buy a Molson product. Add that to the 14 TVs for sports watching, and you've got a pretty sweet deal.

1858 Granville Street, 422-8600

Maxwell's Plum

"Sports and beer go well together," says Mike Hillier, Maxwell's general manager, of sports nights at the split-level pub. With four 52-inch large screen TVs and 60 beers on tap, there's no shortage of either.
