We are located in the J. A. Skinner Building, a registered historical landmark. Situated on the old “Route 66,” it represents one of the few examples of art deco design in Albuquerque.

The building, built in 1931, was designed as the main store in a chain of family owned groceries, and has always been divided into two stores (now two dining rooms). The east dining room retains the original pressed metal ceiling and ceramic wall tile wainscoting with geometric motifs, and the original school-light ceiling fixtures.

The main facades of the building on the North and West are surfaced in imported terra cotta. The display windows are divided by pillars with a stylized papyrus design, framed by volutes and topped by several bands of geometric design, Just above are bronze covered transoms which are glazed with small squares of opalescent glass in a green and black pattern, reminiscent of the depression era. The name “J. A. Skinner” is etched into the North facade of the building.
