Property Detail
16 E. Hargett Street
  The Smoking Times  

Built in 1910, this building was home to a tailor shop and Moton Jewelers. This storefront was among the many shops, restaurants and barbershops that served downtown Raleigh and its surrounding neighborhoods.

In 2007, Empire Properties updated the building with all new plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems, restored the 1940's storefront and revealed the original operable sky light and open mezzanine. A pre-existing doorway was restored between this space and The Raleigh Times Bar, and an antique 1896 bar was installed to service this extension of the popular downtown bar and restaurant.
