Help Light the Sign!


Help us save the old Commodore Inn neon sign by contributing to the Light the Sign campaign! We need to raise $2000 to finish the restoration of the old Commodore Inn Sign, rescued from its original location on Patterson Avenue at 12th street.

“I thought it was the coolest neon sign in Roanoke. A true landmark that was rusting and falling apart,” says Matt Ames. “My grandfather used to hang out at the Commodore Inn in the 1940s and I had had my eye on it for years before I finally asked the owner of the building if I could try to save it.”

The sign will live in the City Market Building for all to see once its restoration is complete. Be apart of saving Roanoke restaurant history - donate here today!
