heavily-tinted steel and glass door

It was the kind of place people sometimes referred to as a hole in the wall. Depending on the time of day you pushed your way through the heavily-tinted steel and glass door, you might see a wrinkled old drunk slumping over a shot glass or a middle-aged couple meeting for an extramarital highball or a cluster of restaurant workers drinking beer and complaining about how busy or how slow their shifts had been.

the door glass panes are tinted, not the steel, right?

Thank you.

    Right. And it's quite likely it could just be one large pane of glass.

    This is a door that might fit that scenario. A "hole in the wall" wouldn't necessarily have double doors like many businesses would.
