Downtown Saratoga Springs has a new cozy space that is dedicated to serving champagne and sparkling wines. It's called Bocage and is located at 10 Phila Street. It is only 500 square feet and is designed to feel like you are in someone's home.
What Does Bocage Serve?
Bocage serves champagnes and sparkling wines. You will be able to order by the glass because of the Coravin wine preserver which allows sparkling bottles to be opened and preserved. So customers don't have to purchase an entire bottle. If you don't really like champagne or sparkling wines, Bocage also has New York wines and limited liquor. There are small plates and other light fares that pair well with champagne, like oysters and caviar. They also have charcuterie and tea sandwiches available at brunch.
Bocage is a Cozy Quaint Space
The Bocage Bar is able to seat 20 people and then some additional standing room. Saratoga Springs has allowed Bocage to expand into Phila Street. They can have an outdoor seating structure which would allow doubling their dining capacity according to the Albany Business Review. Bocage is already busy and is anticipating a lively track season. The owners say they want to keep the intimate experience.
