Downtown Schenectady’s bar scene is poised to become more wine-friendly this summer.

A local developer and architect hope to transform vacant office and warehouse space downtown into the city’s first wine bar. C2 Design Architecture owner Michael Roman says the space at 10-12 Yates St. would be unique in the Capital Region, with a bottling business in back and retail space next door that sells the wine customers drink at the bar.
