End of the Trail Pub softly opens in the Historic Gilbert District of downtown Seaside.

 

Soft opening July 22 with a grand opening planned after the summer, 2019.

 

Sean McKeown, a member of a longtime restaurant family in Seaside, received a full on-premise sales license at the End of the Trail Public House at 735 Broadway located in the historic Beacon Hotel Building.

McKeown was the owner/operator of the Irish Pub which used to be across from this location from 2012-17 as back bar to McKeown’s Restaurant.

The idea behind the place is to have a pool table, darts, shuffleboard, cornhole,” McKeown said. “Really a place for people to have something to do other than sit at a bar and drink.”

 

 

Serving pub-style food. The restaurant’s name is derived from “End of the Trail” statue at the turnaround, erected in 1940 to salute the two-year, 4,000-mile expedition of Lewis and Clark.

While the restaurant won’t theme “too much” with the explorers, some history will be displayed along the walls.

The words, “Brazilian Blow Out” and “Moroccan Oil” may not have a lot of meaning to you, that is unless you’ve been exposed to the higher realms of hair care a person might take for granted at a sophisticated city hair salon. But now you can experience these products, and other luxurious hair treatments at a new salon in Seaside — and at a fraction of city costs.

“Customer satisfaction is guaranteed,” said Kegan French, who along with his partner, Will Witt, just opened Salon on Broadway, located at 810 Broadway in Seaside. “If you don’t like it, we’ll switch it out for you at no cost. We stand by our work and our products 100 percent.”

 

 

Kegan French and Will Witt.

French was born in Germany. He grew up in Utah on an Air Force base. He comes from a family doctors and other medical professionals and was expected to follow that path. Instead, while still a college student, he became a stagehand and wardrobe technician in Salt Lake City.

“I worked with Rascal Flatts, Gwen Stefani, Cirque de Soleil,” French said. “I worked with Faith Hill and Tim McGrath. I worked with Ozzy Osborne. I worked with Korn. My life was all glitz and glamour and gradually I began to realize I wanted to make everyone feel like a star.”

It wasn’t long before he ditched the career path his family envisioned for him to enroll in Paul Mitchell, The School, in Salt Lake City. He seriously began to study hair care, graduating as a cosmetologist in 2011.

Eight years ago, French followed his mother, Mary French-Peterson, to the Oregon Coast. For a time he ran the hair salon at Necanicum Village. He had a salon in Astoria. Then he found out about space available in the newly renovated Westport Winery building and a bell went off.

“I knew right away this was where I wanted to be,” French said.

Salon on Broadway focuses on specialized, premium services.

“Conditioning, hair color, precision hair cuts, broken hair bonding and cuticle services are the foundation of industry leading hair care,” French said. “Our advanced skin care uses state-of-the-art micro current, microdermabrasion, photon therapy, ultrasonic cavitation, radio and high frequency rejuvenation, and chemical peels,” he said. “Our truly exceptional nail care includes detailed manicures, pedicures, and shellac nails. If you don’t know what treatment you need, we’re here to guide you.”

Salon on Broadway is a unique space. While it has a modern, industrial feel, at the same time it feels more like a spa than a hair salon. There is a relaxing private room for the specialized facials. Expect world-class service and cutting edge treatment. And then there’s the energy work. French is a resource for his clients in chakra care, quantum healing and hypnotherapy.

 

“I take the healing and beautifying arts very seriously,” he said. “Hair color correction is one of my specialties. Come in and visit us at Salon on Broadway. I’m dedicated and committed to the happiness, health, and well being of my clients. Your satisfaction is 100 percent guaranteed.”

Salon on Broadway is located at 810 Broadway, Suite 203. The salon is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. – article by Eve Marx/ Seaside Signal

 

Salon on Broadway is located in the historic Gilbert District of downtown Seaside in the Wheatley/ Desler Block.

 

 

Seaside Kites

The layout of Seaside Kites located inside Westport Winery Seaside.

Family fun.

Open daily 11-6.

 

The Roberts family, owners of Westport Winery in Seaside, operates Seaside Kites at 810 Broadway located in the historic Gilbert District of downtown Seaside.

Winery co-owner Kim Roberts, who partners with her husband Blain, daughter Carrie and son Dana, said she hopes kids can enjoy the shop while parents spend time in the nearby tasting room.

The kite shop’s tag line is “the sky’s the limit,” reflective of their purchase of the building in January. Since then the family has made significant investments in the property, including deferred maintenance, painting and repairing.

 

The store was aided by Doll Camp, who has owned Cachalot Kites in Westport, Washington for more than 40 years. She focused merchandise on affordable, colorful, and easy-to-fly kites for all ages.

 

Seaside Kites is located in the Wheatley/ Desler Building Block of the Gilbert District.
