The Union is a triad of social spaces coalesced into a unique downtown environment.

The Restaurant

The historic Union Building is the focal point and backdrop for a classic and elegant restaurant, including an ornate historical ceiling in a large two-story volume in the original Bank space. The furniture and materials are contemporary compliments to the historic fabric and create an intimate dining experience.

The Bar

The street-side bar and lounge is a lively space energized by outdoor seating and operable storefronts that blur the distinction between the bar and the downtown street scene. The bar is the connection to the neighborhood and the community.

The Vault Lounge

A chic lounge is hidden below the streets of downtown in the Union Building’s historic safety deposit bank vault. The marble clad lobby hosts a bar servicing the lounge, which is accessed through an eight-foot diameter steel and glass vault door. The lounge provides a secluded getaway and includes a private dining room.
