Students in SUNY Broome’s Hospitality programs will be touring the college’s new Culinary & Event Center at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 8.

The $20 million center, which will open for the Spring 2020 semester, features state-of-the-art amenities such as garde manger, production kitchens, a fully equipped beverage lab for mixology classes, a full-dining room, a state-of-the-art lecture hall for cooking demonstrations, high-tech classroom space, and more.

The Culinary and Event Center also represents the complete renovation of the historic Carnegie Library in downtown Binghamton, preserving many of the aesthetic elements, from the plaster to the painstakingly restored woodwork, a striking skylight, ornate railings, a terrazzo floor with a Grecian key pattern, and two faux fireplaces in the main-floor student lounge.

The tour will meet at the front entrance, located at 78 Exchange St.
