The Backstage Pub Opens its Doors in The City of Schenectady

The long awaited reopening of a pillar pub in the City of Schenectady took place on Thursday, August 9th. Terry Aldrich, a former employee of the previous pub, purchased the business in the beginning of the year. With help from his family, he completely renovated the inside of the building to make it his own. Everything from the bar to the floor to the ceiling was re-done in some way, shape, or form. Terry a, graduate of SUNY Buffalo, saw this opportunity to take a well know establishment and make it new and exciting. Terry strategically picked a 10 item menu, with the thought that he would rather have a small menu that is great rather then a large menu that is just OK. The pub offers daily specials for drink and food and the cocktail list is made up of the original prohibition cocktails. His thought there is “if its not broke then why fix it.”  Terry promises to strive for great service, food and drinks!
