Pre-Snoop GIN & JUICE

Here are a few joints close to the Metro Centre perfect for sippin' gin and juice before---and after---the rapper's return.

Break out the Tanqueray and juice and clank those glasses together: Snoop D-O-double-G's in the house this Sunday. All of Halifax's bars are up for mixing Snoop's drink, but here are a few close to the Metro Centre that are perfect for sippin' on gin and juice before---and after---the rapper's return.

Bubbles Mansion

This Trailer Park Boys-inspired bar, owned by Mike Smith (AKA Bubbles), sells Bombay, Tanqueray and Hendricks as gin poisons-of-choice to mix with juice. And while drink specials are normally only sold Thursday and Friday nights, I'm told big concerts bring in specials on non-special days. Just sayin'.

5287 Prince Street

Cheers Bar & Grill

You can't really get closer to the Metro Centre than Cheers. This live music and dancing spot is open until 3:30am Sunday, so you can drink Snoop's poison---or any other drink of choice---well after the concert's over.

1743 Grafton Street

Halifax Alehouse

This late-night spot carries Bombay for your gin-infused drinks, with gin and juice, tonic and Singapore slings being the most popular Bombay mixes.

1717 Brunswick Street

Peddler's Pub

Peddler's house gin is Aristocrat, while Bombay is also sold. You'll have to hit this spot before the concert, though, as it's only open until 8pm Sundays (the slowest night of the week). The bartender estimates he sells 5:1 gin and tonic to gin and juice, but there might be hope for a swing in the numbers on Sunday.
