First look at the nicest new bar in Albany: Pōst on Lark

Pōst, Lark Street’s newest wine bar, is set to open this weekend with a much-anticipated ‘soft open’ on Friday evening. The prime location at 200 Lark Street has sat idle after two former wine bars had short-lived stints. According to co-owner August Rosa, a focus of the new bar is to have a welcoming atmosphere for everyone, not just wine connoisseurs. While still staying true to it’s cozy date-spot history with intimate fine dining, the new front bar has also been remodeled to welcome the more casual crowd and includes a rotating selection of craft beers and spirits, paying homage to Rosa’s other Lark Street bar, Pint Sized. Browse below for some more photos from inside:
