Are there any good cocktail bars in the Albany area?

Well are there? I've just about given up all hope.

  1. Dunno if Saratoga Springs is close enough for you, but 9 Maple is a classic (no food), and Max London's bar offers terrific cocktails, like a Manhattan with Sazarac rye and Vya vermouth. Can't speak with any authority about Albany proper, although I've enjoyed the cocktails at the bar at Angelo's 677 Prime quite a lot.
