The Building

Built in the 1790s of local granite into a gigantic rock bed, the Walker-Chandler building still stands tall, despite the many devastating floods, more like an old-world structure challenging the passing of time, providing an exceptional experience of history on its own.

Designing the interior of the building, we aimed to create an eclectic environment varying across the three floors. We were keen to enhance the unique character of this gorgeous structure and complement it with traditional Syrian decor, and furnish it with elements all designed and hand-made by the owners on-site.

First Floor: The Bazaar

The original Old-World Bazaar feeling of this floor is captivating. We uncovered the gorgeous granite fireplaces, previously hidden under stucco, highlighted the original wood beams spanning the building, and furnished with unique crafts all around.

The unique window and outdoor seating areas are our customers favorites providing a soothing dining experience while enjoying the vibrant Main St. Make sure to take it if available, you will not regret it.

Second-Floor: Syrian Courtyard

The second floor is our main dinner room with a large open space mimicking courthouses of traditional Syrian homes, featuring a wall decorated with mesmerizing mother-of-pearl inlay wall.

Make sure to check our the unique Syrian handicrafts for sale including mother-of-pearl inlay woodwork , mosaic work, and metal crafts.

Third-Floor: The Board Room

The third floor is our most diverse floor. Preserving the original room divisions, we created a unique dining, shopping, and entertainment experience for small and large groups in the differently sized rooms.

The Board Room is the largest room on this floor: for board meetings, board games and bored people :) Furnished with a custom-made 12-foot communal table built on site (you will realize that it is impossible to get such a large table up there with the cute little stair cases of this historical building)

This room is perfect for your special occasions and entertainment gatherings accommodating parties up to 15 people with media presentation capability and plenty of board games including exotic handmade backgammon, chess, checkers board boxes for sale.

Third-Floor: The Damask Room

With exquisite damask table throws, runners, place-mats and more for sale, this rooms provide a warm, sophisticated gathering place for parties of 10 people

Third-Floor: The Brocade Couplet
