SARATOGA SPRINGS — Palette Café, a new collaborative workspace and café in Saratoga Springs, is slated to open on Wednesday, June 5. Owner and creator of the new space, Catherine Hover, hopes the Palette Café will create social destination dedicated to successful women in career and in life.
Hover, decided to create Palette Café after attending a Girl Boss rally in New York City last year. “It just lit me up,” she said.
“You need a palette to create everything, and that’s what we hope to provide for any woman or man who wants to do better for themselves... Just have an inspiring place, a new innovative place to hang out and to be, that isn’t a bar,” says Hover and adds that the name is also a play off another business she owns, Saratoga Paint and Sip Studio.
Palette Café, located at 493 Broadway, will serve up a variety of coffee drinks, wines, cocktails and even boozy coffee drinks along with grab-and-go snacks and desserts on its first floor. Also on the first floor is a semi-private workspace complete with a private phone booth. Here, guests will be able to connect to Wi-Fi and grab a drink.
In the space, is also a gallery wall dedicated to an artist in residence. The art is for sale and the artist will receive 70% of all sales while staff receives 10% commission. Hover also plans to host painting in the patio events once a month.
“My thought was, I needed decor and why not put bad ass art on the walls,” said Hover.
Hover plans to expand in the coming months for a phase two of the new business, which will be located upstairs and will be a co-working community space. Phase two will include elevated amenities like high-speed Internet, a full-time concierge, a conference room and desks, as well as a community space for programming, events and speakers.
“I always meet people out at coffee shops and I’m not being met with what I personally need and I felt like I couldn’t be the only one,” says Hover about her inspiration behind Palette Café.
The Palette Café will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and celebrate a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, June 5.
