We aren’t talking about the famous novel by Leo Tolstoy…War and Peace is a new vodka bar that will open this spring on the corner of State and Pearl Street in Albany.
Joe Schaefer and Pete Cusato own the successful bar and grill, Savannah’s at 1 South Pearl St. in Albany and decided to open up a second business. The duo purchased the vacant space next door to Savannah’s which was previously a copying store. The new bar will have ornate paintings, murals, stone and water flowing over tile. Sounds classy!
There will be no copying machines, but the good news is that War and Peace will offer at least 16 house infused vodkas! What exactly is a house infused vodka? The basic concept is to combine a variety of choice flavors into a base liquor to create a custom flavored spirit. I can’t wait to try one of War and Peace’s unique cocktails!
I am so excited for War and Peace’s grand opening this spring.There is no set date yet for a grand opening, but Schaefer and Cusato are pushing to open in April. Don’t worry, we will keep our eyes and ears open so you know when to check out the new Albany hot spot. I know I’ll be there!
