Drinks at The Adelphi

Romantics, enter here.

OK Romantics, here's the best place for you to have a drink in the whole entire Capital Region. If you haven't been to The Adelphi yet, seriously, you gotta go.

Alright, maybe the drink prices are a little steep (from $8 to $10) but they make their signature daiquiris ($9) with fresh cream, so it's tough to drink more than one anyway. And you can practically get drunk on the atmosphere of the place.

Built in 1877, The Adelphi is one of the few hotels left from Saratoga's Victorian Age. And it still has that old Victorian feel. Don't get us wrong, it's not stuffy and uncomfortable. Quite the opposite. It's cozy and romantic. Think Victorians on vacation.

Where you sit is important--and it depends on your mood. Between the lobby, the bar, the cafe and the selection of comfy little indoor/outdoor porches, patios and nooks we counted about 8 different "venues". Our favorites are the porches. They're intimate little spaces where you can admire the courtyard, your date, and the hotel all at the same time.

The drink menu offers daiquiris, champagne cocktails, juleps and some of their own creations. And the mixed drinks from the bar come in heavy Irish crystal tumblers you'll have to resist taking home with you.

Even the music was handpicked from the owners collection of records from the 30's through the 50's.

Is it for everyone? Well, maybe not. Is it for romantics? Absolutely!

The Bottom Line

A great place to take a date, good friends, or a trip back in time. But don't wait too long. Their season goes from late-May through mid-October.

The last time we were there (a Saturday before 11 p.m.), they wouldn't let us hang out at on the back patio/bar. "Hotel guests, only," they told us ...

Haven't been there in a while, but drinks used to come in beautiful lead crystal, with edible flowers on top. Made me feel elite!

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
