This was a fantastic experience. The staff was friendly, and their work was terrific. I had a picture of what I wanted, and they followed it perfectly. Highly recommend coming here!!! One of the best places I have ever gone to! SB

We had a wonderful experience at this salon! The salon is so clean and has a great atmosphere; it’s clear that the owners care about their business and customer experience. If I lived closer, I’d be a monthly regular, but we will definitely visit every time we vacation in Seaside. AN

Beautiful salon with super nice and friendly staff. I went with my sisters and my niece; they did a fantastic job! KB

My sister and I went in this morning and had gel pedicures done we did the luxury package and it was just delightful! The people in there are very very sweet and engaging. We were greeted the moment we walked in and felt very welcome! This was an awesome experience and we will definitely be back!”  CK

Hotelier buys historic Gilbert Block Building | News – Seaside …

 Hotelier Masudur Khan has purchased the Gilbert Block Building and plans to renovate its top floor into a hotel.

 
 

The historic Gilbert Block Building in Seaside pays homage to its past while offering an updated home to a variety of trendy businesses…and, soon a second floor posh hotel and possiblity a chic roof top dining spot.

Seaside’s carefully restored commercial area east of the Necanicum River houses one of the city’s oldest building and is home to an array of interesting coastal shops, galleries and eateries.
 
The Gilbert Block building (1914) at the intersection of Broadway and Holladay are set to have a new beginning of a new lease on life for the area.  Strolling along this artful section of downtown Seaside, you will discover boutiques filled with fine art, jewelry and fashion, shops offering great collections of home décor and accessories, and eateries serving up a variety of tastes from sushi to sweets and sauvignons.
 
A visit to Seaside’s downtown shopping district isn’t complete without a stroll into this historic section of present-day Seaside, where you’re sure to catch a sense of the Seaside from days of old.
 

While many visit Seaside to stroll the Prom, ride the carousel and load up on saltwater taffy, walk east on Broadway over the Necanicum River and you’re in a very different world — the oldest part of Seaside, to be exact. Seaside’s mayor from 1912 to 1916, Alexandre Gilbert, rebuilt the four-block Gilbert District at the intersection of Broadway and Holladay Drive after the city’s big fire of 1912. Today the Gilbert District is thriving with vibrant restaurantsart galleriesboutiques and antique stores. More than 30 local businesses call this historic district home. Here’s how to spend a few hours poking around. 

Stroll across the arched Broadway Bridge and you’ll see the Gilbert Block Building, est. 1914.  SunRose Gallery is full of colorful mosaic tables and whimsical local art. Next door, Pacific Heirloom is the place to pick up vintage glass floats, and the upscale Fairweather House & Gallery is a must-visit for anyone who’s serious about Northwest artists.

Continue toward Holladay and you’ll see Beach Books on the corner. Pick up that hardcover you’ve been dying to read and then walk through the adjacent French doors straight into Dough Dough Bakery for a chocolate tahini roll and a warm mug of Sleepy Monk Coffee Roasters drip.

Still thirsty? Walk north on Holladay and pick up a gorgeous cowl-neck scarf or other beautiful handmade gift at Seaside Yarn and Fiber, before making another stop at The Whet Spot, which offers a rotating selection of local brews and ciders on tap. Warm up with standout pumpkin curry or a spicy bowl of tom kha at YellowCurry Cozy Thai, a locals’ favorite, with traditional and regional dishes from all over Thailand.  

Update: The exterior facade of the Gilbert Block Building has been accented with rooftop lighting in January 2022, thanks to its newest owner, Masud Khan!

P.S.S.T. Perhaps, too, a rooftop viewing deck…is in the plans…

How to Explore the Historic Gilbert District

While many visit Seaside to stroll the Prom, ride the carousel and load up on saltwater taffy, walk east on Broadway over the Necanicum River and you’re in a very different world — the oldest part of Seaside, to be exact.

Seaside’s mayor from 1912 to 1916, Alexandre Gilbert, rebuilt the four-block Gilbert District at the intersection of Broadway and Holladay Drive after the city’s big fire of 1912. Today the Gilbert District is thriving with vibrant restaurants, art galleries, boutiques and antique stores. More than 30 local businesses call this historic district home. Here’s how to spend a few hours poking around.

Stroll across the arched Broadway Bridge and you’ll see the Gilbert Block Building, est. 1914, and Kirwen Building, est. 1913. SunRose Gallery is full of colorful mosaic tables and whimsical local art. Next door, Pacific Heirloom and Collectables is the place to pick up vintage glass floats, and the upscale Fairweather House & Gallery is a must-visit for anyone who’s serious about Northwest artists.

Continue toward Holladay and you’ll see Beach Books on the corner. Pick up that book you’ve been dying to read. Then walk straight into Dough Dough Bakery for a chocolate tahini roll and a warm mug of Sleepy Monk Coffee Roasters drip.

Still thirsty? Walk north on Holladay and pick up a gorgeous cowl-neck scarf or other beautiful handmade gifts at Seaside Yarn and Fiber, before making another stop at The Whet Spot, which offers a rotating selection of local brews and ciders on tap. Warm-up with a standout bowl of tom kha at YellowCurry Cozy Thai, a locals’ favorite, with traditional and regional dishes from all over Thailand.

Next, cross Holladay and grab a stiff espresso at Seaside Coffee House in the Wheatley-Desler Building, est. 1914. You’ll need the boost, because right around the corner on Broadway is the Seaside Antique Mall, where you can spend hours perusing everything from vintage birdcages to old postcards. Nearby Rust and Dust offers even more repurposed and antique collectibles. And the End of the Trail Public House is a fun newish sports bar in town with darts, pool, shuffleboard, and a patio — not to mention a cozy space to watch the game.

All this exploring calls for immediate sustenance, and the family-friendly Seaside Brewing Company, housed in the old Seaside city jail, est. 1914, is the perfect place to end your Gilbert District tour. Sit down to a plate of fresh fish tacos and a pint of craft brew poured steps from where the “drunk tank” was once located. Come back for breakfast or lunch at Firehouse Grill.
