Watertown First is proud to announce our newest Business Spotlight is Downtown Local Lounge, “The best place in town to wine down!”

Downtown Local Lounge was established in March 2017 by owners April Walley and Kevin Hoover Jr. Kevin’s passion for making wine led him down a successful path, winning several medals for his wines. This enabled him, together with April to share their appreciation for great New York State wines with others. Downtown Local Lounge is best known for selling their NYS wines by the glass or flight in a relaxed lounge setting.

At the Downtown Local Lounge, Kevin and April have hosted several Wine Gatherings, including Sip & Paint events. Future Wine Gatherings are planned for the following Sundays at 6PM: August 6th, September 3rd, October 1st, with the next Sip & Paint Friday, August 4th at 6PM.

Kevin is originally from Watertown, while April moved to Watertown 15 years ago to join Kevin. They both state, “We are very happy to be considered in the re-birth of Public Square and with everyone’s help and cooperation, we can make Watertown Public Square a great place for people to visit again.” Together they exemplify the Local, Independent business spirit that makes Watertown a great place to live and work!
