Restaurant Description
According to the best available information, our building was built about 1909 in three separate stages. The first stage was a free standing structure two levels tall and a full basement. Shortly thereafter, the middle are of the present structure was added and still later, the third and final addition was added. With the exception of the downstairs bar area, all of the exterior walls are solid brick and 14" thick. Little is known about the early usage of the building. However, in the 1930's the east wing of the building housed Doctor Yates Drug Store and Pharmacy and the second story above the drug stored housed five one bedroom apartments, all sharing a common hall and bath. In the 1940's Yate's drug stored passed hands and the new proprietor was Rhynes Pharmacy. Jim Condor came on the scene in 1954 and for the next 31 years the east wing of the building became known as Condor Sundries. Jim was an affable man and ran one of the first real sports bars in Charlotte; albeit a fray cry from today's typical sports establishments. Condor sold cold beer and sandwiches up front and some of Charlotte's elite and not so elite quaffed cold ones side by side. There was a pool table in back and a TV for watching whatever game was in season. It was even rumored that you could get and instant bet down with ol' Jim on your favorite team. Condor also had neighbors in other areas of the building in the 1950's as it played host to a desk factory and an antique store. Unfortunately by the early 1960's, the building, with the exception of Condor Sundries had fallen vacant and into a rapid state of despair. However, the fortunes of the old building at 300 - 304 Morehead Street were about to change dramatically when a gentlemen by the name of Larry Presley discovered it. Presley fell in love with the building and took steps to obtain it immediately.
