Exciting changes in the Old Gas Building

Here’s the latest scoop on the Southern Counties Gas Co. Building: In the front will be a Mexican restaurant with different regions of Mexico represented in the cuisine. In the back will be an art gallery/events space available for rental. The building has been purchased by Mexican-American businessman Alfonso Cordero. [1997 Business Week article on Mr. Cordero]

FUN FACT: The Old Gas Building housed Handlebars Saloon and Restaurant from the early 1970s to late 1980.
