Saratoga Springs, NY
Following a tragic fire in 2016, Phinney Design Group was tasked with the design of a new bar and restaurant at the existing location on the shores of Saratoga Lake. Taking the opportunity to rebuild the new space to correct service and capacity issues experienced by the previous building, the project team was able to provide a modern, comfortable, and efficient kitchen space to maximize service and increase revenue for the popular lakeside destination.
Passive temperature control had a large influence on the overall design, with the incorporation of large operable doors and controlled ventillation allowing for comfortable air circulation.
In addition to the restaurant and bar, the new layout also incorporates an outdoor concert venue, outdoor bar service, and a direct connection with the beach.
