Lionheart Blues Cafe
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Over 20 fresh beers on tap from pales & wheats to fine hoppy west coast selection and many powerful top shelf big beers. This is THE place to explore good beer in Albany. No food served except free popcorn. Packed & loud Fri Sat nights. At other times, bring in excellent jerk chicken from Dutch Pot, a few doors down the street. Yes, darts in back room, but hang at nice, long front bar for good scene. Low prices for great beers during happy hour. They moved from Lark Street to Madison Av many years ago. We also like City Bar, Rucs, etc., but best is Lionheart.

Wonderful beer selection and a full bar makes this the go to place for happy hour. Attentive bar staff, relaxing atmosphere, unlimited pop corn, nice patio and very large beer selection are just some of the many lovely features of this great downtown gem.

This place fills up with locals during league nights due to the large backroom filled to the brim with dart boards. They have a huge beer selection; my favorite part. Some tvs, average music, and tons of Albany law students.
