Buffalo has always had a reputation for being a city that knows how to party. With a number of distinct nightlife districts spread across town, you'll never be far from a wealth of watering holes and a whole night to find them, with last call at 4 a.m. There are plenty of nightspots found on Allen Street, along Elmwood Avenue, in University Heights and on Hertel Avenue in North Buffalo, but the region's nightlife mecca is the Chippewa Entertainment District in the heart of downtown. This multi-block strip of bars, clubs, restaurants and coffee shops serves up an eclectic menu of entertainment options.
You’ll find plenty of people any night at the trendy SoHo Burger Bar and caffeinated cool at Spot Coffee. It's country in the city at Buckin' Buffalo Saloon where the daring can ride the only mechanical buffalo in the U.S.
In the summer months, check out Skybar, a rooftop patio and nightclub that sits high above the city, offering unbeatable views. Or check out a concert at the Town Ballroom or the Tralf in the Theatre District. These hip venues feature musical performers of all genres - both underground and mainstream.
