I ate a Danube Burger at the Danube Cafe last night. Mmmm good. Then I found out the news: the Danube is closing at the end of the week.
I never went to see music at the Danube, but they hosted a lot of folk, jazz and country. Matt Mays and Dusty Sorbet had been known to perform there. I only mention this for the benefit of those keeping score in The Great Halifax Music Venue Death Watch.
Apparently, one of the reasons the owners are giving for the closure is that they don’t like the location. The Danube Cafe is located on Spring Garden Road in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
If the Harbour Hopper is to be believed, “Spring Garden Road is the busiest street in Canada east of Montréal.”
