Troy venture an eclectic tap room and curiosity shop

The doctor will see you now. Well, not right now. And not the actual doctor. But, there will be a number of things to remind you that a new business in the Victorian rowhouse at 45 2nd Street in downtown Troy once functioned as a doctor's office.

The premises are being converted into a venture  called Elixir 16, what creator Megan Reavey and boyfriend David Linen of Collar City Renovations describe as a "bottled beer emporium, tap room and curiosity shop." They're hoping to have a soft opening in June, serving drinks and specialty foods as well as home-entertaining items.

“It was the building’s history as a doctor’s office that inspired the name, Elixir 16, as a nod to the elixirs that doctors prescribed around the turn of the last century, the magical potions often promising to induce love, eternal life and to turn metals into gold,” Reavey said in an interview with The Record.

She said the renovation process on the building they bought last year has uncovered a variety of medical paraphernalia accumulated over a century of use, some of which will be incorporated into the business's decor.
