In 1988, Chris and Michael Schuba purchased the building.  They supervised an extensive renovation.  The exterior of the building is similar to its original  appearance.  The interior was renovated to maintain the long mahogany bar, the intricately designed tin ceiling, and the wainscoted wall panelling
