After 30 plus years of sitting vacant, The Barfield Hotel is now open for business.
Originally built in 1927 by Melissa Dora Oliver-Eakle, the new luxury hotel at 6th and Polk Street with a fine dining restaurant, speakeasy and a cigar room.
Along with the Grand Opening, The City of Amarillo presented the hotel with a façade Grant for $20,000 to help pay for the distinctive Art Deco-themed signs at the hotel.
Beth Duke, Executive Director of Center City of Amarillo, “The Barfield is one of downtown’s most historic skyscrapers. Now it has a new life as a luxury hotel that will welcome visitors for years to come,”.
Since 1996, Center City has invested more than $1.3 million in façade grants in downtown.
