Located in Historic Medina, New York

Located just off the Four Corners of Medina, NY, the Shirt Factory has been operating as a successful cafe since opening in 2006. In 2018, four Medina natives purchased the business with plans of highlighting the area’s rich history while helping to excite people about the future.

Prior to being purchased in 2005, the building had created quite the reputation around the world. From Los Angeles, to Washington, DC, to Great Britain, the name Robert H. Newell & Co. was one that leaders and celebrities knew. From 1918-2004, Newell ran his acclaimed shirt factory out of this downtown building. After the business was moved, it opened the door for the next chapter.

In mid-September, the cafe will launch the next chapter of its book - an evening cocktail program that will highlight local wine, beer, and specialty craft cocktails all curated by owner and mixologist, Scott Robinson.

If one likes his work, it will become his recreation.
