Cooperstown Distillery


We fit up Cooperstown Distillery into the former Bruegger’s Bagels location on Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs to transform it from a bagel shop into a retail storefront and tasting bar. The 2,360 SF space now includes the main bar, retail space, and a seating area with a fireplace. We installed a new tin ceiling with copper paint, new light fixtures, new floors, an Anderson bifold door that opens to the sidewalk, a new Mahogany front door, and a new awning. We also painted the exterior, the interior walls, and the back stairs and redesigned the two bathrooms. The new space features plenty of custom work from the Bonacio Woodshop, including the main bar with corbels, a wrapping station, and the retail casework.
