The bars and clubs are very competitive on price in the early part of the evening. Club reps hand out fliers on the night for drink vouchers and free entry. Prices range from 75p a drink to more than £4 after midnight. Before 11pm/midnight club entry is usually discounted and even free with fliers.
In past years, Halifax had a bad reputation for Friday and Saturday nights, however in recent years this has improved significantly thanks to a greater Police presence and from the Halifax Street Angels.
The Halifax Street Angels aim to protect those who are drunk and vulnerable after a night out. They are often seen patrolling the streets of Halifax on Friday and Saturday nights between 9pm and 3am. With their help, violent crime has been reduced by 42% and is a model now being copied across the world. The Street Angels work from a café that is located across the road from the Acapulco nightclub, next to the YMCA. Fairtrade Cafe, 15 Crossley Street, Halifax, HX1 1UG.
