An oasis within the industrial landscape that once defined the city, Buffalo RiverWorks might best be known as the place with the massive grain elevators painted to resemble a six-pack of beer visible from cruising altitude. But RiverWorks, in a relatively short period of time, has become much, much more . One of Buffalo’s remarkable examples of adaptive reuse, RiverWorks is constructed in the footprint and ruins of the former GLF grain silos, a reminder of Buffalo’s strong industrial heritage. This brewery, restaurant, sports, leisure, adventure and entertainment complex has become a one-of-a-kind destination along Buffalo’s waterfront.
The question isn’t what can you do at Buffalo RiverWorks, it’s what CAN’T you do. If you’re scoping out a breezy place to relax along the Buffalo River, the RiverWorks brewery and beer garden are calling your name. Looking to get on the water? Rent a kayak, stand up paddleboard and hop on the Buffalo CycleBoat or Buffalo Tiki Tour. Seeking heart-pumping adventure? Put your rock climbing skills to the test as you scale the sheer walls of the grain silos. Catch a action-packed roller derby bout, jam out to a concert or enjoy one of the events happening nearly every weekend at RiverWorks.
