Saugatuck Grain and Grape in Westport has been approved for the construction of a wine bar, c2h6o, at their existing 40 Railroad Place address by the town’s Planning & Zoning Board of Appeals. Their plans include transforming half of their existing retail space into a separate stand-alone wine bar in the burgeoning Saugatuck neighborhood.
With the plans a year in the making, owners Mimi McLaughin and Jeff Marron are ecstatic their project has the green light to move forward. "I feel like I just gave birth to a teenager, this thing's been incubating for so long!" said McLaughlin this morning less than 12 hours after plans were approved, "We're really excited that it's actually becoming a reality now. Jeff has done quite a bit of research to develop a cocktail program that is both sophisticated and educational. He plans to really focus on vintage cocktails and the cocktail culture trends of the late 19th century."
