Salar Restaurant and Lounge

The smell of smoke is still present in Hicks Barber Shop and Shave Parlor in the Oregon District, after a fire New Years’ weekend broke out in the kitchen of Salar Restaurant and Lounge.

 

While Salar was more heavily damaged, the barbershop is one of a half dozen other businesses that were forced to close because of smoke damage. The Emporium Building, which houses the businesses, also currently has no electricity, water or heat.
