Halifax has often been considered a beer town. Maybe you can blame it on Alexander Keith, founder of the namesake brewery, one of the oldest in North America, that still sits down by the city’s waterfront churning out bottle after bottle of lagers and ales or the fact that Halifax is one of the biggest college towns in the country. Whatever the reason, the city’s long love affair with hops has become something of a calling card.


  • Founded in 1820, Alexander Keith‘s next to the Halifax Waterfront, is among the oldest commercial breweris in North America
  • You can only buy alcohol in special, government-owned liquor stores called NSLC
  • There are more pubs per capita in Halifax than any other city in Canada

What clients are saying

We visited Moore Suites as a cheaper alternative to booking two hotel rooms for a one month stay. The apartment was spacious, immaculately clean, had a lovely little balcony and was well stocked with tea, coffee and washing up items. Far nicer to come back to than any hotel room we have stayed at in Halifax, and we visit at least once a year. The staff were very polite and welcoming. Within a one minute walk to Spring Garden, the location was great! This will definitely be the preferred choice next time.

Just wanted to thank you for being so pleasant with me and for renting out the beautiful apartment. Even though my husband and I are not in Halifax for a pleasure trip, we appreciated living in such a high-end residence. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

I would like to say how much I enjoyed my stay in apartment 401 Waterfront Place. I stayed for a month while working in Halifax. The suite is amazing and the view, day and night, is spectacular. I will highly recommend staying here.

- Linda

Thank you very much for a wonderful stay! We enjoyed our stay very much and will recommend your location to anyone who asks. We very well may be back some day and will definitely look for availability here due to the accommodations, location, cleanliness of the rooms and the kindness of the staff. Thank you, it was a trip of a lifetime.

- Samantha & Joe

Our stay back home has been wonderful. I just wish it could have been longer. We really enjoyed our stay at your suite at the Paramount. So many thoughtful details put into the suite; there wasn’t anything we lacked. The view of the Public Gardens was most enjoyable, as well as the convenience of this location. I hope to come back next summer!
