A History Of Clinton’s Ditch:
Started in 1817 and completed in 1825- The Erie Canal was considered a marvel of engineering. The 524-mile NYS canal system connects hundreds of lakes and rivers throughout the state. The canal was dubbed “Clinton’s Ditch” by those opposed to Governor Dewitt Clinton’s idea to connect the far corners of the state. When completed, The Erie Canal opened the only trade route west and helped make New York the predominant commercial city in the United States. Today, the canal is used mainly for pleasure and sections have been replaced by alternate waterways. For those interested in the Erie Canal, its 57 locks have been meticulously maintained and service thousands of boaters every year.

The History Of Clinton’s Ditch Bar And Grill:
Through a collaboration of friends, family, and the city of Schenectady, Clinton’s Ditch Bar and Grill opened in 2005. We transformed a run down, abandoned tavern into a place where people from near and far come to enjoy great food, close friends, and an atmosphere (both inside and out) that is like no other in Schenectady.

At Clinton’s Ditch, we offer something for every taste with a wide selection of food and drinks along with an atmosphere that revolves to suit your mood. From happy hours, intimate dinners, private parties, drinks on our outside patio, or an exciting nightlife - Clinton’s Ditch strives to cater to your every need.
