    Cheapest best place to have a wedding in Halifax!

    Mike and I would like to thank you and the Lower Deck for hosting our event. We as well as our guests were very impressed by the food and the service! We received many compliments on the taste and quality of the food served. You helped us turn a rough start into a Beautiful finish. We would like your manager to know what warm and friendly staff he has and how caring and accommodating they are. I feel like we had a $50,000 and not as economical as it was. Beautiful high ceilings, two levels, wood mixed with brick. Beautiful views of the Waterfront. Especially you Kelsey! You were with us every step of the way. You are professional, warm and sweet person and I am so happy to have met you! I hope you continue doing what your doing!
    I cannot say enough about this venue. So glad I chose it. It was so historical and so Halifax! The fact that I got married where my ancestors walked so many years ago made it that much more special! May you all be blessed in so many wonderful ways. Mike and I will never forget what a beautiful thing you did for us and you made our day!

    Thank you,

    Lisa and Mike Bride

    We had our ceremony at a museum; although the price we paid covered the whole night it was more cost effective to have our reception elsewhere for catering reasons. The Tap room is a great choice. Allison is great. Food is good and the space is old school Halifax.
