The Oxford Theatre was a beloved icon from the streets of Quinpool and people of the North end, and it would be an understatement to say that watching the space go unused would have been devastating.
The theatre opened in 1937 and is noticed as a landmark and an important part of Halifax’s history. From first dates, family outings and even a wedding venue, The Oxford Theatre holds fond memories for many Haligonians.
Garrison Brewing Co. President Brian Titus recognized the importance of honouring the history of the building and made it his mission to commemorate the icon when developing and building The Oxford Taproom. The taproom radiates a cozy and vintage feel featuring an eclectic mix of artifacts and décor. From the classic Triumph motorcycle to the church pew seating and hand painted murals, The Oxford stays true to it’s roots.
