Surprise! It's not a fantasy tavern, but a 50's American tavern. The building itself is based on one that used to exist in Portland, Oregon, but they tore it down and replaced it with a parking lot in 1955 as part of an "urban renewal" project :poly127:
It was originally a bank, built in 1881, which is why it has that semi-baroque architecture. They knocked out the bottom floor and put in the glass-fronted stuff you see in my model at a later date. Also, it is what is known as "cast-iron architecture", because the columns, arches, keystones, cornice pieces and pediments are all made out of cast iron.

Critiques are very welcome! I've avoided photo sourced textures, with the exception of the sidewalk and the 7up sign, so I'm especially interested in critiques of my texture. Also, does anybody know what the deal is with using logos of real companies in portfolio pieces? Will I need to create a faux coca-cola logo for this thing, or can I leave it as is?
