Downtown Reno has been making big strides toward improving vacant and forgotten spaces. With new apartment complexes popping up and updates to long-standing buildings, there always seems to be something new to check out. One of the more recent renovations is found at the historic post office building located at 50 S. Virginia St. It was built in 1934 and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Not wanting to lose this Reno gem, a group known as 50 S. Virginia, LLC has been revitalizing the building with retail and meeting space. Although not all of the 14 retailers are open for business yet, shoppers are welcome to explore those that have opened their doors in the space known as The Basement Reno. Here are a few of the shops you can expect to see:
Promoted as a “gentlemen’s barber shop,” Beautiful Bearded Man specializes in traditional techniques for quality cuts and shaves. In addition to providing in-house service, owner Josh Arias also has a mobile barber shop. Book him for your wedding and give the groom the pampering he deserves.
This new, pressed juice bar encourages you to “steal back your health.” Using local, raw ingredients, RAWBRY gives you a healthy option to help fuel your day while still tasting amazingly delicious. If you are looking to do a body cleanse, these are the people you want to help you out.
