The space at 1 Caroline Street downtown Saratoga is now home of The Misfit, opened June 18 by first-time restauranteur Michael Mills.
“The Misfit is intended to be just a bar with a small selection of bar food,” he said. “The location had a full kitchen, but one of the reasons I jumped on it was because I always loved this space.”
Mills runs a touring theater production company whose events, like so many others, were shuttered during 18 months of the COVID pandemic. His office is above Max London’s on Broadway in Saratoga Springs, so he knew that the landlord of his building, Mark Straus, co-owned 1 Caroline and signed the lease.
While Mills Entertainment “gets back in full swing,” Mills is enjoying gearing up The Misfit for track season, he said.
“We are taking the time to smooth out the kinks,” he said. “There are always surprises getting a business going, especially in an old building.”
