So a lot of you guessed the bar at Jay’s Seafood, some thought it was the Century Bar and a few even suggested Pat’s Bar on Linden, Coco’s Bistro and Carvers. WRONG!
This lovely bar is located in the Amber Rose Restaurant in Old North Dayton. They specialize in homemade Eastern European Cuisine including German, Lithuanian, Polish, Hungarian, Russian and Italian cuisines. The bar is made of imported Turkish marble, perfect for having an appetizer and spirits with friends.
The building, in which The Amber Rose Restaurant is located, was originally built in 1910 by Sigmund Ksiezopolski. It ran as a general store and deli named Sig’s up until the 1980’s. The family ran the general store downstairs and resided upstairs as their family quarters. The National Guard stayed with the family during the Great Flood of 1913.
In 1989 Elinor Sluzas acquired the building with the intention of opening a restaurant. Before the scheduled grand opening there was a horrific fire and a portion of the building had to be rebuilt. The restaurant officially opened for business in 1990. Elinor retired in 1998 and owner Joe Castellano bought the restaurant, and still uses many of Elinor’s recipes.
