Saratoga Nightlife For The Over 30 Crowd (Soul Age Counts, Too)

Feeling a little over the crowded late-night bars but still too young to stay at home? You're in luck because nightlife in Saratoga is so much more than just hitting the bars or the club!

From evenings listening to classical music under the stars at SPAC to laid back pubs and restaurants where you can sit all night, drinking and chatting with friends, to third-Friday swing at the Saratoga Music Hall, there's always something to do when you don't want to mix with the college crowd, but you're tired of sitting at home watching Netflix.

When You're Looking for an Awesome Cocktail

The Bourbon Room

Though the Bourbon Room is located on Caroline Street with some of the busier bars, this intimate bar is perfect for anyone who loves bourbon and bourbon cocktails. The knowledgable staff are never too busy to help you choose the perfect drink to savor.

Hamlet & Ghost

A hand-crafted cocktail bar, Hamlet & Ghost uses fresh, seasonal ingredients in their drinks, offers small plates, and doesn't allow standing! If there's no room at the bar or one of the tables, you have to wait or come back later. Honestly, this is our kind of place.

15 Church

Want to party outside? The Porch at 15 Church is an awesome little hideaway with handcrafted cocktails, a relaxed vibe, and tends to a 30+ clientele.

When You're Looking for Some Good Music

9 Maple

An intimate Jazz bar, where the cocktail menu includes a choice of over 250 kinds of martinis and single-malt scotches, 9 Maple is the perfect choice if you want to spend a quiet evening together, sit and while away an hour with an excellent glass of Scotch, or catch up with friends.

Saratoga Performing Arts Center

(SPAC) provides fabulous evening music every summer. You can catch a variety of concerts from Dave Matthews Band to the Philadelphia Orchestra. There is nothing like the rush of seeing your favorite performer live on stage. We recommend getting lawn seats for one of the classical concerts and enjoying the sounds of the symphony washing over you as you gaze up at the stars and sip wine.

The Saratoga Casino Hotel

Looking for something a little more upbeat? Test your luck at the slots! The Saratoga Casino Hotel has over 1700 slot machines with 1¢ to $25 games. After gambling visit Vapor Nightclub for a drink or dancing, it tends to have an over 30 crowd.
