COHOES, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Tugboat Tavern, located at 159 Bridge Avenue in Cohoes, is up for sale. Owners Ian and Katherine Caristi said they decided to sell the business for health reasons.

The Caristi’s have owned Tugboat Tavern for 16 years. They are selling the entire business including the recipes and staff, as well as the building which includes a back parking lot. Katherine said they have had some interest in it already.
