Lake Placid Nightlife

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey,
Does anyone know what to expect for nightlife in Lake Placid on a mid-January Sunday and Monday night. I wouldn't imagine things would be too happening (or would they?), but what would be the best options for some guys in the late twenties and early thirties?

Funny you ask....

Well, since it is Sunday night, I fit your demographic, and happen to be in LP at this moment I can help you out a bit.

There will be slightly more going on a month from now. Currently the best thing in town is Va Tech vs. Duke on ESPN.

Options:

1) The Lake Placid Brewpub for Apre ski. If you are there on a Tuesday they have 2 for 1 beer specials. It is hot or miss for talent, but a mandatory stop for an UBU ale and a quick glance at the crowd. Laid back atmosphere. The Brepub used to have a great food and a great looking wait staff, unfortunately the standards have dropped in the past year for both food and hostesses.

2) The Cottage is a bit more attractive to the ladies. Can have a good crowd but is hit or miss on Monday and Tuesday. Not a real drinking bar. But does have a cool location on the lake and decent food.

3) Zigzags is a drinking bar on mainstreet. You can't miss the bobsled out front. This is a just a bunch of good ol boys and their women drinking, playing pool and darts, and smoking out front. If you are bent on getting polluted this is a good spot to do so.

4) Lisa G's has good casual food and a good local crowd.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the quick reply. Sounds like a bit of a pub crawl might be in order. Are all these spots withing walking distance?

Within walking and stumbling distance of each other.

Lots of lodging in LP. You can get great deals at the Crowne Plaza and Hilton that give you lift tix. Also a lot of good mom and pop motels. The Townhouse Lodge has "family rooms" which are really 2 room suites with a King in one room and 2 twins in the other room. These rooms are great for 3 guys if you are looking for clean, simple cheap rooms. The Best Western Golden Arrow has the best indoor pool, Jacuzzi, steam room.

Enjoy.

What's the scene like in Saranac? I can't imagine why it would be more happening there than in Lake Placid.
