Carbondale’s newest hotspot, the Marble Distilling Company, is now open for business. Confluence Architecture was there to participate in the First Friday festivities last week. The tasting room was transformed into a club like atmosphere for the grand opening as craft spirits were enjoyed by many of Carbondale’s population adding to the vibrancy of the space and helping to define what makes Carbondale such an attractive place to live and work.
