Soda Bar Exhibit

Vintage soda bar and chocolate malt bar. When you visit our Car Museum in Canfield, Ohio, be sure to take a good look at our 50’s Soda Bar and Vintage Chocolate Malt Back Bar from the early 1940s. The Chocolate Malt Bar was the original back bar from Strouss’ Department Store in downtown Youngstown, Ohio. Shoppers often stopped in to have the best Chocolate Malts anywhere. These were served in a small glass with silver spoon! This back bar is the “original” and still has the original marble top and mirrors, as well as fancy wood columns. An old NCR Cash Register completes the decor, along with a pair of antique slot machines that were restored and on display for added interest, although were not a part of the malt bar at Strouss-Hirshberg Department Store. Back Bar a courtesy of Michael Simon.
