Art of Business: Dancing Cat Saloon 

Spirit(s) of Woodstock

Bethel's Catskill Distilling Company and Dancing Cat Saloon owners Stacy Cohen and Monte Sachs keep showing the world why they make the perfect host and hostess in a spot renowned for peace, love, and music. Catskill Straight Rye Whiskey garnered a national industry gold medal in April, the latest of a couple of dozen other best-ofs. While Dr. Monte's Peace Vodka, Curious Gin, and Defiant Rye win fans out in the world—Manhattan, six other states, Japan—Stacy's cuisine, live music, art, sculpture and jazz brunches are pulling the world right back to Bethel. "Just got accepted to the National Geographic Travel Guide," Stacy says. "It's been wild. Village Voice Readers' Choice for a place in the Sullivan County hills? But of course, we have the coolest clientele on the planet. Second-home people, locals, international folks—everyone who comes here from everywhere is comfortable, and I'm really proud of that."

Product names hearken back to 1969, and patrons are encouraged not to miss the Woodstock museum across the street; other aspects of the site evoke still older history. The buildings are lovingly renovated Victorians, and the bar at the distillery is an art deco piece from the 1939 World's Fair.
