May 25th, 2021 – Northport, NY – Skippers located at 34 Main Street, Northport will reopen its doors on May 26th, 2021, at 5 p.m. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate its recent renovation and grand reopening after being closed since November 1st of last year.
Skippers dropped the word Pub in their name to go along with the new chic environment. "Our new restaurant is more contemporary & an accurate reflection of who we have become and the success we have achieved over the last 43 years", stated Paul Gallowitsch Sr.
As part of the entire interior and exterior facelift, the rooms were completely transformed with a new folding glass wall system, new hardwood floors, paint, lighting fixtures, electronics, and a new bar. The dining room was outfitted with everything from new tables and chairs to flatware and plates. The kitchen was redone and included new ranges, equipment, and prep space.
"We wanted to make the most of our spectacular Northport views and open our interiors to the great outdoors by incorporating a new glass wall system," Paulie Gallowitsch V stated. "Without a doubt, this is one of our favorite new features. We also like that we have kept some of the nostalgia pieces like the Navy port holes and the copper bar.”
Skippers is launching a brand-new menu that Executive Chef Joab Masse spearheads along with Chef de Cuisine, Donaldo Pavon. Skippers has a brand-new craft cocktail menu to accompany the food, and a robust new wine covers all of the bases, from red to white to bubbles. Beer drinkers will also find something tasty to sip on with the expansion of their 10 beers now pouring on tap.
The unpretentious vibe of the new space and format of the new menu is meant to be casual and welcoming, a feeling that will extend to Skippers daily happy hour.
All guests that attend the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, will enjoy a complimentary champagne toast and hors d’ oeuvres. The dining room will open at 6:30 for dinner following the ceremony. All are welcome.
