Green Derby New Restaurant Being Built
A handsome new dining place is under construction in West Jackson to be operated by the Green Derby Restaurant for the Drake Motel.
Wise Construction Company of Jackson is building the 4,000 square foot building on U.S. Highway 80 West, on a high knoll overlooking the city’s picturesque skyline.
The building will contain a large dining room, two club dining rooms and a coffee shop with a total seating capacity of 170.
The restaurant is so designed that during the peak hours all dining areas may be served with a minimum of cross traffic by the help.
One wall of the main dining room is set at an angle and is glass to permit diners to view the skyline. The front of the building faces directly west, with a minimum of glass in the front to avoid the hot afternoon sun rays, and to permit the maximum efficiency of air conditioning.
Godfrey and Bassett of Jackson are the architects.
