Obladee Wine Bar

Obladee is a wine bar on Barrington Street in Halifax, owned by siblings Heather and Christian Rankin. Their bar offers plenty of good wine by the glass options. The character of the place is warm and relaxing, making it an ideal spot for a drink after work or to meet friends before heading out to dinner.

There are a variety of seating options for larger groups and intimate parties alike, with fun little nooks and crannies tucked throughout the space. The bar has several unique features including two enclosed glass window seating areas, a spiral staircase and tables made from Glenora Distillery barrels.

Although Obladee focusses on wine rather than food they do have delicious cheese and charcuterie boards. There are also three good local beer choices on tap for those who prefer to sip a cold one.

Obladee is a fun spot to gather for drinks. The staff are friendly and more than willing to give suggestions. I quite enjoy the vibe here and the bar has quickly generated alot of buzz. The only downside to its popularity is that it can be challenging to find seats during peak times, so if you plan to meet a group for drinks it is best to arrive early. Another good option is to make your way there during the week when things are less busy.
