Six Of The Hottest Spots For Post-Race After Parties In Saratoga

One of the best parts of a day at the races is the after parties! Whether you're looking for live music, a place to relax with a cocktail, or some great bites, you'll find it at these spots around the Saratoga Race Course. Check out some of our favorite spots for post race after parties:

Prime at Saratoga National

It's pretty tough to beat the patio at Prime for post-race celebrations. The canopy of blue umbrellas screams summer, as does the Prime Lemonade. Surrounded by the golf course water feature and firepits, you'll be living the high life no matter how betting went at the track.


Dating back to the 1930s, Siro's is one of the oldest establishments in the post-track party scene. Live bands playing hits from Elvis, Bruce Springstein, and Billy Joel draw quite a crowd. If you're looking for the post track party to see and be seen, this is the right place.


Celebrations on the patio at Gaffneys

Get your chance to celebrate in The Winner's Circle. Gaffney's outdoor patio, known as The Winner's Circle, is another post-race hotspot you need to experience. This cornerstone of Caroline Street books local and national live music acts guaranteed to get you on your feet.

Kings Tavern

Kings Tavern has been a part of the race track party scene for nearly 50 years. After sitting vacant for 8 years, Kings Tavern was revived in 2014. The team behind Saratoga City Tavern returned Kings Tavern to its former glory with an impressive craft beer lineup and inventive food specials.

Brook Tavern

Inside of a former horse carriage factory on Union Ave sits the Brook Tavern. Here you'll find historic Saratoga meets contemporary decor creating a unique atmosphere. Their cocktail menu is sophisticated yet perfect for sipping on a summer evening.

Horseshoe Inn Bar & Grill

Just across from the track on Nelson Ave you'll find this long-time post-track tradition. Affectionately known as "The Shoe", this party spot is known for great live music and food. Like the track, the Horseshoe Inn goes dark on Tuesdays.
