Business Overview:


Check out this just finished build-out--a full service cafe/bistro/restaurant/taproom/bar in a 103 year old completely renovated brick building, a former bank, in the historical canal side village in upstate NY. Building in immaculate condition. Just completed 400k renovation top to bottom. Both vaults are still there--the perfect place for beer, wine and liquor. This restaurant overlooks the Oswego Canal, where many boats, from barges to kayaks to yachts, travel between May and October. You can dock your own boat up right here and walk 60 feet to your new restaurant. What will you call it?

On the ground floor is a 48 seat dining room/bar/cafe, fully licensed commercial kitchen, 2 ADA baths. 50 seat fenced patio, and an attached 2 story 500sf deck with additional seating for 24. There is a new 22 vehicle blacktop parking lot, with plenty of free off street parking. The property sits in-between the canal, a small hospital, an antique seller, a full spa, sports bar, distillery, marine sales, and numerous other businesses. Directly across the street from LOCK 1 of the Oswego Canal, which is home to one of the few remaining vehicle drawbridges, and Island Park which can be reached by crossing the canals foot bridge, or driving 30 seconds around the corner over the drawbridge. All summer you will hear the bell ring, which notifies the lock staff to open the canal, lower the water, and raise the bridge. Traffic patiently waits and the bridge is lowered. Watch it all from the deck as the sun sets in the background. At the other end of the block is Henley park, where live music plays a few time a week, all season long. Numerous festivals are held in the village during the year that draw huge crowds.
