Bike Bar, Ithaca
The retail space was previously occupied by Homespun, the yarn, fabric and arts and crafts store. The interior fit out, design by John Snyder Architects, includes a handcrafted bar and eclectic finishes. The Carey Building in which both the Old Goat and the future bar are located has seen much construction over the past few years. While it once was just a two-story building, five stories were added to the building about two years ago. In addition to Old Goat and the soon-to-be Bike Bar Ithaca, it houses Rev: Ithaca Startup Works above the ground-level shops, and apartments on upper levels.
The new bar will focus on beers. Customers will be able to purchase craft beers on tap and in cans, from local and non-local breweries.
