We happened upon this place walking back to our hotel after diner. We were instantly drawn in by the rockin music. There was no cover charge, drinks were reasonably priced and the band ("Shaky Stage) was awesome. Super nice people and vibe.

A less than no frills bar with cheap drinks, good music, and friendly staff. We don't end up here too often, but it's usually a pretty good time when we do!

We had a great time on a Saturday night. This night included a Celtic group that brought back memories of being in Dublin. The pub has a variety of music each evening. The bartenders are great. They are willing to talk about the pub and...More

Good selection of beers, good prices and excellent live music. We went on a Sunday and enjoyed Dr.Jazz and the Jazz Bugs and the surprise performance of Megan, the bartender. A gem. Ecclectic atmosphere, you feel welcome. We recommended to everybody in Buffalo!
