The restaurant and lounge and community room will open in early 2021. Plans include a sports bar atmosphere and pub menu offering and catering for weddings, reunions, and special events.

“We are pleased to partner with TALO to deliver an amazing food and beverage experience for patrons of the newly renovated Miners Forum," said Amanda McDougall, Mayor of CBRM. "This partnership also an creates an opportunity for a successful local company to expand their business."

“The Glace Bay Miners Forum is one of the most storied facilities in our community and we are honoured to partner with CBRM for the re-opening of this home for Glace Bay Minor Hockey and so many other groups. Our goal is to deliver an outstanding experience that makes the Forum the place to be for sports and other special events,” said Angela Houston, Co-Owner, TALO. “The TALO team is grateful for the opportunity to grow our business here at home,” she added.

TALO Cafebar opened downtown Glace Bay in February 2015.
