Local beer and burger spot Oblivion Taproom is saying goodbye for the second time in two years.

While no exact reason was given, Oblivion's last day of operation will be Saturday, May 26, the restaurant's management announced last weekend in a Facebook post. "It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the closing of Oblivion Taproom," read the post. "It’s been two years and a few months since we kept Oblivion from closing. We have had some great times and some challenges, unfortunately we couldn’t overcome the challenges." 

This is the second time Oblivion, which is located at 5101 E. Colonial Drive, has closed in the last two years. The restaurant also closed and reopened back in 2016

Orlando Weekly readers picked Oblivion Taproom as the "Best Pub Grub" for two consecutive years in 2015 and 2016. They also received awards for Best Pub/Taproom and Best Wings in 2015.
