Make it lively

The Great Indoors

Come for the outdoor activities, stay for the indoor action. Whether you're into spending a rainy afternoon trying a flight of craft brews, a lively Friday night dancing to live music, or pairing a fine ale with artisan food, the Saranac Lake region has a number of great destinations.

Downtown, The Waterhole is a local legend, known for hosting live music, from local to nationally-known touring bands. The diversity of the lineup means there is always something for everyone. For a quieter scene, check out the Great Hall Bar down the street at Hotel Saranac, where the 1920s origins of the hotel are celebrated with inspired craft cocktails. Try a Mary Pickford and the charcuterie, a selection of local artisan cheeses.

Intriguing new spots are popping up, too, including Hex & Hop in Bloomingdale and the Ray Brook Brewhouse. Both serve their own handcrafted brews, which they put a lot of thought and care into. Saranac Lake might not be the craft beer capital of New York yet, but it's well on its way.

Whatever your speed or interest, we've got the flavors and scene for you.
