Designed in the Moderne style, the structure features a curving glass block entry and an elliptical fenestration band of glass block. H. F. Gray purchased the site in 1944; J. L. Rizer, contractor, erected this building in 1945-46 for the operation of Gray’s Cafe and Bat The structure remains a saloon today. It has suffered from the addition of a rustic “Western” wooden canopy and recent renovation which included removal of the glass block windows.
