Waterworks Food + Drink

“Nestled in the Champlain Mill, we are pleased to offer a unique dining experience that encompasses the history of the mill and the people of Winooski.

Our menu features creative american cuisine and there is hardly a seat in the house that does not offer a spectacular view of the Winooski River.” – directly from the Waterworks.

The Champlain Mill in Winooski, Mill No. 4, was completed in 1912 as part of American Woolen Company’s expansion.

In December of 2014, Waterworks Food + Drink opened to occupy the space of its predecessor with an updated interior, a creative New American menu and the same spectacular views of the Winooski River.

The afternoon sun can blind the guests and waitstaff. Something had to be done to reduce the BRIGHT sun, yet maintain the gorgeous view of the river.

As you can see at the end of the sun room, the bright light is filtered just right through our EcoSmart Roller shades.

Our Solution

Vacant for several years, the building became derelict filled with broken glass and pigeons until renovations in 1980 transformed the interior to office space, boutique shops and dining establishments. One notable restaurant was Waterworks, located in this space. The Mill Museum opened in 1998.

By early 2000, many tenants left; retailers became a part of Champlain Mill history. In 2011, My Web Grocer purchased and renovated the building, adding new windows, a new roof and their company office spaces. The Mill Museum and Winooski Historical Society Museum welcome visitors on the second level.

Our team knew our EcoSmart Roller shades would be the ideal solution for this space.

We used a combination of 3-5 % opacity.

One of the biggest things that differentiates our EcoSmart Roller Solar shade is the hardware system we use. We build with one of the most well-regarded hardware systems in the industry: the Rollease System. What this means to our clients, is that the clutches won’t fail, and the shades will raise and lower almost effortlessly.
