Dine at a National Historic Site of Canada

Tucked away within the heart of Confederation Centre of the Arts, the Mavor’s courtyard is a patio like no other in the City of Charlottetown. For a sun- or star-lit dining experience, don’t pass up a visit to this architecturally significant space this summer.

“With a beautiful garden, shady trees, waterfall, and all-day sun, I would say our courtyard is the best-kept secret in Charlottetown” says Mavor’s server/bartender Shelby Dixon, adding “we’re shielded from any wind and traffic noise, making it a little oasis in the middle of the downtown.”

An oasis indeed, considering the brutalist architecture of Confederation Centre that surrounds this subterranean lush space. Built in 1963-1964, the Centre’s exterior is faced with solid, continuous walls of sandstone. Once used by the Confederation Centre Art Gallery to display public sculptures, the space has been landscaped and furnished to complement the architectural marvel of this National Historic Site of Canada.

Take the stairs down from the concrete plaza off Grafton Street, and enjoy this unique atmosphere before the summer weather and patio furniture are packed away for another year.
