Our latest project was Druther’s Brewery in Schenectady, NY. Druthers Brewing Co. is a brewery and restaurant with growing popularity in the Capital Region, thanks to their previously established locations in Saratoga Springs and Albany. After first opening in downtown Saratoga Springs in 2012, Druther’s expanded to a second location in Albany’s warehouse district in 2015. The restaurant is very well known for their beer, and their food which is beyond good – It’s PHENOMENAL! We were so fortunate to be able to work with this company that we love.
As soon as space became available in the new development known as The Riverhouse at the Mohawk Harbor in Schenectady, Druther’s Brewing Co. saw an opportunity to open in a third location, becoming the first tenant to sign a lease at the establishment which is host to 206 apartments and more than 65,000 square feet of office and retail space. The restaurant overlooks the Mohawk River, and is just a short walk to the $330 million Rivers Casino and Resort.
Let the Project Begin..
We had the luxury of working with Sensory Six, an Interior Design company based out of Saratoga Springs, NY to complete the project. Sensory Six brought an unusual blend of creative, technology and project management talents to bring the vision of Druther’s to life.
Druther’s was a complete build out for us. We started out with a completely empty building and started from scratch. Just like Druther’s beer is made, they wanted everything in the building to be custom and creative. Our company goes hand in hand with Druther’s – it’s all about that handmade product! Based on the interior design specs from Sensory Six, we handled all of the custom wood work that was required to be built onsite and prefab in the shop for assembly.
Some key pieces that we designed are the entryway doors from exterior grade cedar and powder coated metal work for the wheels and hardware. We completely tailored the outside of the building to give an open and modern feeling.
Since the restaurant overlooks the harbor, Sensory Six went with a nautical feel using marine style ropes.
Sensory Six designed the bar soffit with rope hanging in different directions with 6×6 beams fit to the finished opening roughly 16’ x 36’.
Thanks to Sensory Six interior design skills, we created the entire hostess and retail area with shelving and industrial pipes for easy display of their merchandise and beer.
The bathroom doors were made to display “Ladies” and “Gentleman” in the Druther’s famous logo!
