    Casino
    The Irvingly casino is four stories tall and towers over the other buildings of the town. It is painted a cheery plum with gold gilded accents that are meant to look wealthy and inviting. The building is furnished in order to make the upper class comfortable. The first floor holds all sorts of games for gambling as well as a separate room where the fireplace that is connected to the floo network is located. Alongside the room is the closet dedicated for apparation. There is a bar off to one side that serves muggle and magical drinks and a long counter on the other side that serves as a money exchange point. The other three floors are dedicated to billiards, bowling, concerts, dancing, dining, tea parties and theatricals. On the roof of the building (which is decorated much like a park), several tennis courts have been set up. A charm has been placed on it so that if anything (or anyone) falls off of the roof, they simply bounce back up again - unharmed.

    It is most often frequented by members of the middle and upper classes.

    Chance L'Amour
    A small brick two-story cafe that has wide windows lining the front walls. There is a small wooden porch that one must cross in order to reach the front door. It is decorated with thick amber-colored fabric, sage green walls, several large ornate mirrors and dozens of golden candlesticks. There are several round tables scattered throughout, with amber place settings and perpetually living floral arrangements in the center. Near the back of the cafe is a bar - though generally reserved for tea and wine, customers can also order hard liquor. A fireplace that is connected to the floo network sits in the back room. Stairs that lead to the upstairs apartment are also located here.

    The Irvingly Arms
    Founded in the spring of 1884. A small inn and pub located in Salem Square near the train station. The stone house boasts ten guest rooms, a dining room, and a small parlour. A modest three-bedroom suite is located towards the rear of the building in which the innkeeper resides. There is a gazebo in the back garden in case patrons wish to take in some air. Rooms are available by the night or by the week, though they prefer not to have a given guest longer than a month.

    It is most often frequented by members of the lower and middle classes.

    Irvingly School
    Funded by the Etherium family, Irvingly School offers a basic muggle education to the lower class (and middle class, if their family cannot afford a governess) children of Irvingly and Hogsmeade between the ages of five and fourteen. The small, one-room schoolhouse is located on the edge of Salem Square, and has a locked room with a fireplace for Hogsmeade children to floo to school.

    Magical Liaison Office
    A modest two story red brick home is set across the street from the casino. The first floor serves as the liaison's office, with a small counter for the postman, while the second floor serves as his apartment. Any complaints or concerns from either magic of muggle folk alike are welcome. In May of 1883, a small addition was added to the back, with two desks for muggle police constables and a single jail cell.
