Midtown Tavern- Halifax NS

Halifax’s original Midtown Tavern was torn down recently to make way for new development. From a sign inside the building, it looks like there are plans in the works to build the “Midtown Towers” on this location. The website of the designers describes it as the “Midtown Hotel” The site is directly across the street from the former location of the Chronicle Herald Building, which was razed at approximately the same time. The Midtown Tavern moved down the street to 1744 Grafton. The midtown has been in operation since 1949. The building dated from the 1860s.
