Historic Name: Green Lake Grill Common Name: Greenlake Bar & Grill
Style: Commercial Neighborhood: Green Lake
Built By: Year Built: 1927
This is another key structure in the Green Lake commercial district, built across from the lake in 1927. Originally owned by D. T. Young, it has historically housed several businesses, usually with a café at the prime corner spot. In 1939 the main store was Dement's Candies and Nuts, with a prominent sign advertising its soda fountain. Other stores have included printing companies and real estate agents. In the 1960s it was the Green Lake Grill and in now the Green Lake Bar & Grill.
This brick commercial vernacular structure is in largely intact condition, with notable large 15-light transom windows over the main display windows. The restaurant entry is angled to take advantage of the corner siting. The dark red brick cladding, in varied shades, is accented with cast concrete coping and rose medallions at each bay. The three storefronts on 72nd Street are largely intact with wood-framed display windows. The main corner entry has been modernized.
