Bar with troubled history reopens in Saratoga Springs

Gaffney’s in Saratoga Springs has officially reopened its doors.

The bar made the announcement over the weekend on Instagram, simply saying “We’re back!”

The business had to shut down back in May after being linked to several violent incidents.

In order to reopen, Gaffney’s had to pay a $70,000 fine to the State Liquor Authority, and must follow new rules, including closing at 2 a.m. and having no live music.
