SALT has made its home on the historic corner of 11th and Pearl in Boulder Colorado, the site of Tom's Tavern for 40 years. We are proud to be able to continue the legacy of Tom Eldridge by honoring his life long dedication to people and place.
Our commitment to using local sources for our produce also extends to the re-building of Tomís. Almost everything used
in the interior is made from recycled and reclaimed materials. Many of which came from the original building. The old pane
glass from Tomís windows was used in the metal (reclaimed boiler plate) and glass dividing wall in the entrance. The 100
year old sagging floor joists became the doors, flooring, and community tables. Everything from the tiles and counter tops,
to the interior doors and glass shelves came from our neighbors at Resource 2000. The tables are the old doors from Casey
Junior High. Local artists came together to reconstruct this beautiful building. For more on the what and how of the building, download their story....
