2 of The 13 Best Bars Outside NYC Are In The Capital Region
Albany and the Capital Region alike have so many amazing bars! Which two in the area landed on this list?
One of these I know for a fact is a huge favorite among many of my close friends. I personally have never been. This I get scolded for numerous times. City Beer Hall in Albany. One of the things I know many people love about it is the free pizza! Thrillist (who made this list) says you get a personal pan on the house with an order of a local craft brew. Is that true? From reading their description I must go. Mechanical bull!! Four 5oz beers for $8!! I personally love samples. It sounds like they deserve the distinction of being one of the best bars outside of NYC.
The other bar is 9 Maple Ave in Saratoga Springs. Thrillist says that this place of libation has the most single malt whiskeys between NYC and Montreal. They also have a variety of over 250 different martinis. They describe it as a jazz bar as well which while I may not be an avid listener, I know it is so easy to unwind to some good jazz.
What do you think? Are there better bars than those in Cap City? I personally believe there is no way Thrillist can send out reviewers to each and ever bar outside of NYC in the state. If so I would like to apply for a job. Where is better?
