Owing to an over amount of work In
the Bi M.Miv ollice on Saturday, we
were uuable to notice the ojiening of Mr.
Gates new saloon, which took place on
Saturday night. The new resort is by
far the most elegant and spacious one In
the city. It is the room formerly occu
pied by Kobhins' Music Bazar, between
Sixth ami Seventh streets, on Commer
cial avenue. The entire department has
been rearranged, newly painted and pain-red
beautifully, the wood work having
been grained, oiled ami varnished by one I
ot our master artista. The walls are
adorned with the most elaborate and ex
pensive paper, with large and beautiful
representations of the most noted statu
ary ol the day, in gold and silver, the
back ground being of a rich lavender.
The bar Is a very handsome one, fur- I
ni-hed w ith mirrors and the most elabo
rate and costly w are of every descrip
tion, as well as the finest liquors, wines,
etc., that can be procured.
The billiard tables are the same
used In the old establishment, but have
been re-cushioned and covered, and in the
new house are perfectly level, which w ill
prove a great benefit and pleasure.to the
lovers of this scientific amusement.
The card room is a spacious, cool and
pleasant one, furnished neatly. It Is sit
uated at the rear end of the house, fifty
feet from the bar, where no interruption
from drinkers need lc had.
The opening on Saturday night was at
tended by hundreds ol people, the friends
and acquaintances of Mr. Gates, and his
genial and attentive bar-keeper, Charley
Frank. Among the visitors were many
of the most prominent politicians and
business men of the city. At ten o'clock,
an oyster lunch such as would astonish
and delight the most fastidious epicure
was spread, and w as partaken of by an
immense crowd. The establishment
promises to become even more popular
than the old one. Not because ol any
greater efforts to please customers than
has been excrled by Messrs. Gates and
Frank in the past, to please their patrous,
but because of the elegance and stylo ot
the saloon. We congratulate its pro
prietor iu the judgment and taste he has
displayed on fitting up his establishment,
aud predict for him success iu the days to
come, eveu greater than that of old.
