"Opening its doors in 1949 as the Lord Nelson Tavern, Oasis is now the oldest tavern in Halifax. In 1963, The Lord Nelson Beverage room AKA Ladies Beverage room or LBR was opened, the first beverage room in Canada, which meant women where allowed in without an escort and had their own space*. In fact, to be a male on the LBR side they had to be escorted and invited over by the women in attendance!
