The Stokes Adobe in Monterey is a national heritage site that is rich with historical elements from Monterey's historical background. The building was established in 1833 and housed a former apothecary, was home to California's first newspaper press, contained the first kiln in California, was formerly the famous Gallatin's restaurant and more recently, restaurant 1833.
The two-story building is designed in the Monterey Colonial style with turn-of-the-century elements that pay homage to the building’s rich history. The approx 7,000 square feet building is sited on a half-acre property that includes ample outdoor space that provides an intimate setting for outdoor dining & entertaining. Four fire pits and a patio sit beneath towering redwoods and an oak tree said to be planted by Father Serra. This prime downtown Monterey location blocks from the Alvarado street city center, art museums, shopping and restaurants and City Hall. Zoned as a multi-use area, there are many potential uses with ample on-site parking in a charming downtown setting.
Formally restaurant 1833, the building currently has a commercial kitchen, full bar with separate wine room/cellar, dining and lounge spaces and could be re-imagined as a retail space or overnight accommodations or a place of residence, just to name a few.
