Gold Dome
(Mike Allen)

I just want to take a moment to talk about how much I like the gold dome building on Northwest 23rd Street.

What was once a bank, I mostly know it from housing the defunct Prohibition Room bar and restaurant several years back. I have a distinct memory of trying my first COOP DNR there, in fact. My how time flies!

I drive past the Gold Dome often, and I can’t help but wonder what kind of uses the building could have in the future. I’m finding that there has been a lot of talk about this in recent years, and considering my fondness for the structure, I’m glad these conversations are being had at all, as we know all too well in this city that things can go the other direction in a hurry with old buildings.

My hope is that someday I will enjoy a beer in the Gold Dome again, but for now, I’m just glad I can look at its golden goodness from my car.
