Economic Development Q&A series – Member Projects: Cavalryman Steakhouse
Cavalryman Steakhouse has had past projects including a new package liquor area and a new kitchen floor. In April, they are focusing on remodeling the lounge area. Brien Sonzogni chatted with us about the project.
Q: What have you done recently to remodel the restaurant?
A: Cavalryman Steakhouse has been working hard to solidify plans for the growth and remodel of the restaurant. Recently we have finished our new kitchen floors and Whistle Stop packaged liquor area.
Q: What else do you have on the list to remodel at Cavalryman Steakhouse?
A: Our next immediate change is the bar and lounge remodel. Cavalryman Steakhouse has been around for 50 years, the building 100 years, and the property of Ft. Sanders for 150+. We have been working to incorporate the rich history of Laramie into this next remodel. Elements of the historical Keystone Dance hall will be represented in our new bar remodel. Also, old town outside Laramie will be incorporated into the lounge which includes a night sky, local vegetation, and a touch of the real Wyoming.
Q: What spurred you to do the remodeling?
A: The plans to remodel have been a focus for a few years now. Cavalryman Steakhouse has been around for decades and we have a commitment to the community to preserve the history and memories that have been a part of Laramie for so long. This first phase is only a small taste of what is to come.
Q: How do you think this well impact the restaurant? How will it potentially impact local Laramie Economy?
A: This will impact the Laramie economy in many positive ways. The new ambiance and amenities will bring back the excitement of the property and a great talking point to bring people out. We have set the groundwork with curated cocktails that are out of this world. Not to mention our award winning 150+ bottle sommelier curated wine list. There will be opportunities for new memories and stories to be made. Laramie will finally have a place to getaway and have a little fun while still staying close to home.
