New World Bistro Bar is an 80 seat gastro pub in the heart of Albany’s newly revitalized Delaware Avenue Neighborhood.

The building is cozy, the food is fresh and creative, and the staff is friendly and nurturing. We have designed the next generation of neighborhood cafes, feeling more like Park Slope than midtown Manhattan. Come as you are.

Original aspects of our 1910 building, such as exposed brick, black pipe and plaster have been incorporated into the Bistro’s design. The Art Deco mahogany bar is originally from the 1939 World’s Fair.
