The Best Saratoga Bar for Cocktails!

A newer bar in Saratoga Springs, Lucy's Bar is gaining attention as one of the best places to go to for a festive time and amazing cocktails (not to mention Insta-worthy decor)! Their tag line is "Come As You Are" creating a welcoming atmosphere as you wander in off of the craziness of Caroline Street. The motto on their website is "Good Vibes, Better Drinks and a Little Thing We Like to Call A Lucy" which tells you everything you need to know about this unique place! On your next visit to Saratoga Springs be sure to pop into to Lucy's to experience it for yourself!

Good Vibes

Lucy's Bar is cozy and quaint and is the perfect place for a celebration, girl's night out or date night. I previously posted about the amazing Christmas decor they had making it one of the most festive bars in Saratoga.

I was at Lucy's recently and they said they were finally taking down the Christmas decor and getting ready to decorate for Valentine's Day. I can't wait to go in and experience that! I heard a rumor that they also intend to decorate for Saint Patrick's Day and Halloween along with other festive events throughout the year. Make sure to keep Lucy's in mind during any of these holidays to go in and check out the decor. If it's anything like the Christmas vibe it will be something to behold!

Great Drinks

One of the cool things about Lucy's Bar is their signature cocktails created exclusively for Lucy's by their talented bartenders. The cocktail menu changes frequently with new concoctions designed specifically for each season. The most recent menu had delicious holiday/winter themed drinks with fun names like Sweater Weather, Holiday Who-Be What-EE, Mazel Tov (so those celebrating Hannukah don't feel left out), Santa Drinks Fernet, and Miracle on Caroline. I tried Sweater Weather and the Holiday Who-Be What-EE and both were amazing!

They also offer wine and drinks on tap as well as Spirit-Free drinks for designated drivers or those who don't wish to indulge. So no worries! Everyone in your party can enjoy Lucy's even if they aren't in the mood to drink alcohol.

The Lucy

As their motto states, Lucy's has a signature special called "The Lucy" which is One Shot and One Beer. As you can see from the menu above, you have a choice of the shot you want and the beer you want to chase it. They also offer merchandise that reflects the Lucy. One of the ladies I was with purchased a Lucy's beanie with an adorable patch of a beer and a shot on the front. It was so cute!

Happy Hour, Veteran's Night and Special Events

Lucy's has a Happy Hour Sunday-Thursday from 5-7. During Happy Hour drinks are Buy One, Get One for House Cocktails, Draft Beers and Seltzers and House Wine. Additionally, Lucy's has partnered with Operation At Ease and every Tuesday contributes 100% of the profits to support local veterans. Operation At Ease adopts shelter dogs, trains them as service dogs and provides them to veteran's in need. What a great cause!

Lucy's also hosts special events. Their next is a Galentine's Day event on February 13 from 6-7:30 where you can make a heart-shaped charcuterie board while you drink two included cocktails. Cost is $80.00 for the evening. Unfortunately it appears this event has sold out, but keep your eye out for future events like this!

Lucy's is fast becoming my favorite place to meet up with friends and grab a drink. I love the cozy vibe, the fun drinks and the inviting atmosphere. I think you will love it too so check it out the next time you are in Saratoga!
