It's a Grand Grand Opening!

      The much-awaited grand opening of the new Galleria on Main Street is scheduled to take place on Friday, October 20, 2017 from 4 to 7 p.m., but this grand opening will be so much more! It will include the grand opening of the newly remodeled First National Bank in Trinidad main lobby, and the new Perkatory Coffee House located inside the Galleria.
      During the past fourteen months, after the last steel I beam was autographed by members of the community and placed on the precipice of the new Galleria building, a lot of work has gone into to finishing this beautiful 15,600-squre-foot, two-story building. In addition to completing the beautiful Main Street addition with brick fa├žade and grand windows at street level, The First National Bank in Trinidad main lobby received a face lift. Remodeling of the 5,400-square-foot Bank lobby has been completed, and has improved privacy for customers to conduct their banking business. The fresh, new look in the historic lobby pays tribute to the 1892 original, exposing the ornate ceiling, beautiful mahogany window frames and beveled glass transoms. The historic Bank merges with the new with a seamless transition on two floors into the new experience of the Galleria. But the Galleria is not just an extension of the Bank, it also includes retail spaces, a two-story atrium that runs the length of the building, allowing access from Main Street or First Street, and a multi-purpose community room.

The new building adds a beautiful brick facade to the 100 Block of East Main Street in Trinidad with an indoor atrium that runs the length of the building.

      The construction/remodel project was under the direction of H.W. Houston Construction, LLC of Pueblo, and was based on a design created by architect James W. Nakai & Associates, P.C. of Colorado Springs. Some familiar faces from Trinidad participated in the project as well, including all brickwork done by the legendary local mason, Jim Duran, and all concrete provided by Leone Sand and Gravel. The two buildings are merged together not only through design elements, but also by the historic images of Trinidad and the area, displayed throughout.
      The Perkatory Coffee House is the first retail business to be housed within the Galleria. Its customers can enter on Main Street, or find convenient parking in the back of the building with access through the back door. The Perkatory features homemade pastries and espresso drinks. The Caffe Americano is a favorite among their first customers, which were not surprisingly First National Bank employees. Owner Lorin Manuel has created a menu of unique offerings including Red Bull slushies and a hot tea wall featuring 25 teas from all over the world. The Perkatory Coffee House will be open 7 days a week, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
      The community is invited to stop by and be a part of this Grand Grand Opening of the Galleria, The First National Bank Lobby, and the Perkatory Coffee House on Friday, October 20, 2017 from 4 to 7 p.m. at 100 and 114 E. Main Street in Trinidad. Be a part of this historic moment, the beginning of the next generation of downtown Trinidad. Hope to see you there!
