Episode 53: Mike Leigh, owner of The Bitter End Martini Bar & Restaurant and The Loose Cannon Scottish Public House

We begin this episode with Mike Leigh, owner of The Bitter End Martini Bar & Restaurant and The Loose Cannon Scottish Public House. We are going to discuss with him the challenges he has faced as a food and beverage business owner during the pandemic, and how they are moving forward now that we are into the third phase of the provincial Re-Opening Plan.

And Paul MacKinnon, CEO of Downtown Halifax Business Commission, is back with some updates on Phase 3 of the provincial Re-Opening Plan, Small Tourism Operators Restart Program, Tourism Accommodations Restart Customer Attraction Program, and extension of the Small Business Real Property Tax Rebate Program.

On Biz Buzz, we have a few business updates to share, and we’ll talk about Patio Season in Downtown Halifax, Pups on Patios and The Patio Lantern Festival. We’ll also tell you a bit more about our new Meet Me Downtown and Parking campaigns; and we’ll finish with an update on Tunes at Noon.
