Margarita Day Around Albany - CB Prime Properties

There's a reason why so many musicians have written songs about margaritas: They're fun and delicious! If their popularity in music and pop culture isn't enough reason to enjoy a margarita, then a holiday certainly is. February 22, 2022, is National Margarita Day. Whether you prefer yours on the rocks, frozen, or with a generous portion of strawberry syrup, there are plenty of places to order a margarita in the Albany area. Here are a few bars and restaurants our real estate agents recommend.

  • Margarita City: 1118 Central Ave., Albany, NY 12205
    Margarita City has the word "margarita" in its name, so you can bet their drinks are tasty. This locally owned restaurant has a lively vibe. The bar is always bustling, and the big game is usually playing on TV. Margarita City has a whole menu of so-called Famous Margaritas. The House Lime Margarita can be ordered frozen or on the rocks. Another good choice is the Jalapeno Margarita, which is made with jalapeno nectar. Pair your drink with an order of tacos or a dip to share, and you're in for a fun evening.
