Who doesn’t love Saratoga? More importantly who doesn’t love a good happy hour? Saratoga, New York offers up endless options to choose from when it comes time for that 5 o’clock drink!

Voted best happy hour in Saratoga several times, Wheatfield’s Restaurant offers great deals between the hours of 4-7 P.M. Mon-Fri. Happy hour is served in the bar area only, which consists of a full size bar as well as 4 small booths available on a first come first serve basis. All drinks are buy one get one (BOGO), including their seasonal cocktail list and extensive wine selection. Did I mention there’s a cheese board? Free bar cheese and crackers, which happens to be a delicious snack are available to all happy hour guests. You can also choose to eat off of their bar menu including small pizzas, appetizers, and salads at happy hour prices! Their personal pizza’s are a great snack for one, or a great sharing plate for a small group… at only $5!!! Their white sangria, a cocktail offered all year round is hands down one of the best in the area (I don’t even really enjoy white wine and it’s still my go to every time I’m there). I would also recommend any of their martini’s or mules. If I’ve persuaded you to head over to Wheatfield’s for happy hour make sure you ask for my favorite bartender Jen!

Step off Broadway into a Manhattan-esque style taqueria! The beloved Cantina offers 2-for-1 margaritas, and sangrias, $4 draft beers, and $5 glasses of wine Mon-Fri to celebrate happy hour in their beautiful new space. Cantina also offers up $5 Queso, and $5 nachos to snack on while you enjoy a drink or two. On Tuesday’s you can enjoy happy hour along with $2 select tacos starting at 4 P.M. We’re counting down the days until their roof top bar opens next year!!!

Looking for a casual spot? Gaffney’s situated on the famous Caroline St. is a great pick. Gaffney’s happy hour begins at 4 P.M. and runs until 7 P.M. Mon-Fri. All drinks are half priced! Choose to hangout on the outdoor patio (season permitting) or at one of the two inside bars. Their food menu features a selection of pub food, from appetizers to sandwiches and burgers as well as salads and entrees.

Stop in from 4-6 P.M. daily to indulge in their happy hour specials. $5 glasses of prosecco, $20 bottles of prosecco, $5 well drinks, $8 draft cocktails, $7 frose, and $1 off draft beers!!! Enjoy the unique atmosphere at Sinclair while enjoying your happy hour drinks of choice. Weather permitting hit the out door patio, maybe dabble in a game of corn hole, you could hangout in the arcade and play vintage games, or lounge in a booth in the main bar. Whatever you may choose I am more than willing to be you’ll have a great time. Their one of a kind draft cocktails are rotated seasonally but are guaranteed to satisfy any cocktail lovers taste! I highly recommend a Royal Mule, a current cocktail that puts an amazing twist on the traditional Moscow mule. No worries, not a cocktail lover? Sinclair is also a beer garden solely focusing on craft beers brewed in New York. They regularly keep 24 beers on tap, most of which contain quite a high alcohol percentage.
