Oh, and did we mention that one of them is right here in the Capital Region?!?!

When it comes to lists like this calling out the '10 Best Bars in New York' I generally don't anticipate seeing much of anything from Upstate New York on the list let alone in the Capital Region. I mean, based on the sheer number of bars in New York City alone Upstate New York tends to get over looked.

So I was surprised when I looked at this list and found not just one Upstate New York bar on the list but 3 and one of them is basically right here in the Capital Region!

Now, I have yet to personally check out this spot but it is now on my list. It's a bar called Liquids and Solids in Lake Placid and comes in at #6 on the list with the article saying:

This Adirondack watering hole has everything you need to end a day of hiking or skiing. The bar has an extensive beer and cocktail list, a farm-to-table menu, and rustic accents like a wood-burning stove.

The two other Upstate Bars to make the list are Buffalo New York with the Allen Street Hardware Cafe at #3 and Syracuse's Al's Wine and Whiskey Lounge at #9 (which I can personally attest is top notch).

While I'm glad that Upstate New York is getting a little love on this list I know there are some absolutely stellar bars right here in the Capital Region. What are some of your favorite spots and why should we check 'em out?
