The New Oxford Opens Saturday, December 4th, 2010
It’s our pleasure to announce the soft-opening of The New Oxford this Saturday, December 4th – “A tongue-in-cheek nod to both the world-renowned University of Oxford and British sporting culture, the New Oxford sits proudly on the edge of Yaletown, a welcome addition to Vancouver’s notoriously trendy neighborhood. Vintage touring bikes line the ceiling, leading the eye to a looming portrait of literary genius, misfit and Oxford alumni Oscar Wilde. A long view of the room – which runs the width of the entire city block – reveals rustic gray millwork, classic pub-style furniture and black & white photos of various other notable Oxford grads. A 50 foot long cantilevered bar serves as the rooms center-piece, leading visitors to a into ‘study’ motif, complete with taxidermy, original-print hardcover books, vintage sporting gear and even more comfortable seating.”
The New Oxford is located at 1144 Homer Street in Yaletown.
