Located in the centre of downtown Halifax, this is the home to the local junior hockey team and basketball team, pays host to International Tattoo and many concerts throughout the year. It is the same building as the World Trade & Convention Centre and is connected with Scotia Square (including the parking lot), Prince George Hotel, Delta Barrington, Purdy's Wharf, etc. by tunnels. There are numerous fabulous restaurants to grab a bite to eat before an event, and pubs to grab a drink after.
There food is pretty bland, except for the Subway, but there is a bit of variety. For busy events, there are long lineups at the bathrooms. The better side for busy events is the one closer to the harbor as there is more leg room to walk around during intermissions.
Seating is as cramped as most stadiums with no drink holder except for the comfy seats along the top of the lower bowl. They're definitely worth the extra cost. Most seats have a good to great view except from midway up to the top of the upper bowl.
Parking sucks. There is Scotia Square, the Prince George, Staples, etc. but I recommend grabbing a bite to eat downtown and getting there before the crowd. At the very least, give yourself some extra time to find parking.
