A neighborhood bar + kitchen in the heart of Albany’s historic Center Square

About Us

Nestled on the corner of Dove and State Street (formerly Deer Street), Dove + Deer is a newly restored bar in one of Albany’s oldest neighborhoods. Originally built in 1854, this historic brownstone has just been restored and refreshed. Our cozy atmosphere and affordable plates make this the perfect spot to gather with friends, enjoy a date night, or stop in for a drink from our craft beer, specialty wine, and cocktail selection.

Our Food

Dove + Deer offers traditional pub fare with a more crafted approach. Expect fresh ingredients and vegetable forward options alongside your favorite bar classics.
