Out of all the clubs, bars, lounges, and music venues in a city, 10Best narrows the options to those places with the most appeal and the best reputations. We offer a carefully vetted selection to let you explore Buffalo nightlife on your own. If time is really tight, though, and you don't have the leisure to look through all our offerings, we present our Buffalo Best Nightlife list. Here, we distill the best businesses down to a special selection of ten. These places promise a stellar experience and a taste of the city that you just can't miss.
From gorgeous restored buildings like Shea's Theater that host Broadway productions, to neighborhood pubs like Alternative Brews and Bar-Bill Tavern, we've tracked down Buffalo's favorites. Those seeking an upscale "date night" can visit Left Bank for excellent cuisine and a swanky cocktail bar. A number of live music venues also made our list, including the Town Ballroom, and Allen Street Hardware, a hip bar in the Elmwood Village that showcases local acts.
Beer lovers will appreciate the variety of craft brews at a number of bars, and the Pearl Street Brewery even offers tastings and tours of the facility. No matter what nightlife experience you are seeking, you'll find it in Buffalo.
