Cantina’s second floor has turned into The 408, a sophisticated private event venue in the heart of downtown Saratoga Springs. We fit up the space to include a bar and dining area large enough to fit 150 people, a kitchen and prep/storage area, bathrooms, and a stairwell to the roof. While the event space is above a casual Mexican restaurant, the look and feel of The 408 are unique, with a contemporary and luxurious design by Sensory Six. Floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors that overlook Broadway are eye-catching. Exposed brick lies opposite the custom maple-fronted bar with a leathered stone top and matching cabinetry. A mix of wood accents appear throughout the space, including black wainscot paneling around the center columns, warm brown custom beams on the ceiling, and wood patterned luxury vinyl flooring. The Bonacio Metal Shop did the steel reinforcement of the roof and second-story ceiling using red iron for a future rooftop bar.
