Upper floors of Hot Springs historic building open

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - The upper floors of an historic building in Hot Springs main tourist area are about to reopen.

Rolando's Nuevo Latino Restaurante has opened a speakeasy-style expansion of its restaurant and bar on the second floor of the building at 210 Central Ave., across from Bathhouse Row.

The space could be used only after a sprinkler system was installed to meet fire codes.

The Sentinel-Record reports that the building dates to the 1800s. Sherri Cuzco, who owns the restaurant with her husband, Ronaldo Cuzco, said it took a lot of work with the city to win approval but she said the city helped them through the process.

Hot Springs officials agreed to install a new 10-inch water line to help fight any fires in the area.
