Bar Sajor

Matt Dillon, a 2012 James Beard Award winner and the force behind Sitka & Spruce and The Corson Building, has created Bar Sajor.

Shop
E. Smith Mercantile

The concept for the space mimics one of the original establishments from the owner’s Grandfather’s small town of Atlanta, Idaho. Half of the space offered a mercantile for the town; dry goods with everything from American made denim and leather gloves to bulk teas, coffee and candy. The other half served as a meeting place, a bar where the people could come together and share stories, build relationships, and forget their cares. E. Smith Mercantile will offer the same thing to a growing neighborhood on the verge of resurgence.  201 1st Ave S, website
