To the pub

The bar has been around since 1986. Located on the west side of Buffalo, we have been a little secret of the city for over 30 years.

Informal stop for nachos, BBQ & beer in an unpretentious space sporting a jukebox & pool table.

The Neighborhood

This section of Buffalo goes way back. Rhode Island Street has history and so does Connecticuit.


Feel the vibe

Friendly faces are always coming and going. Bills on sunday, Sabres games are always on, pool table, dart board, juke box. You know the deal. The pub has always been a great place to pop in no matter the time or weather. Warm up in the winter or cool off on the patio. It's just like, well, you know, whatever man.
