For those of you who don't know yet, there is a new "Speakeasy" in uptown Kingston. Appropriately named The Stockade, the City's newest little hot spot holds about 60-70 people comfortably.

Last weekend was the soft opening which was well attended, bringing people up from Gardiner, down from Saugerties and as far as weekend tourists from the Netherlands. It was quite the mix of patrons which is typical of the Gin Joints throughout the city.

The owner, Paul (pictured left) says the air conditioners will be functioning by next weekend to provide even more incentive to drop in and sample the mescal. The space is set up to allow performances in the back. I expect to see an eclectic range of acts to match the clientele.

Located at 313 Fair Street, only fifty feet from North Front, I'd say check it out and make it your new watering hole this summer.

I'm looking forward to a time when there are enough people out and about in Kingston to fill all of the restaurants, pubs and galleries throughout the city.
Stockade adds to the uptown selection and downtown has it's flourishing nightlife but until Midtown is safer and cleaner, the Basement will remain the only holdout on Broadway.
Thank you Paul and staff for investing in our city at all.
