Kaelen’s Plugged-In Guide to Halifax
Kaelen Haworth is no one-town gal. Before attending Parsons and launching her appealingly challenging apparel line in NYC, Kaelen earned a degree in English lit from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia’s coastal capital. And while she has no intention of leaving her adopted hometown, there are a few spots she can’t help but miss. Here’s how to have a top-notch Halifax weekend with Kaelen as your tour guide.
“The Palace is the only ‘club’ open until 4 A.M. in Halifax. It doesn’t matter if you got split up from people earlier—you know if you want to find them at 3 A.M.: on the sweaty, drunken mess of a dance floor. Ahhh, youth.” (thenewpalace.com)
“Foreign Affair was my go-to store in the downtown area. They have Current/Elliott, Dannijo, Helmut Lang, Derek Lam—the list goes on. It was my happy place I went to when I was supposed to be studying. Given where I am now, I think it did further my education!” (foreignaffair.ca)
“The Lower Deck on the waterfront is a great place to get a beer (or 12) and listen to some good local music. It gets packed and pretty rowdy, but hey, it’s Halifax. Loosen up!” (thelowerdeck.ca)
