Nice place to have a beer and a cigar. A few of the bartenders are very knowledgable. When a band is playing forget about talking to anyone cause it's way to loud in there. If they had more acoustic band in there I think I would go there more. Usually if a band starts playing we leave cause you can't enjoy your self. To small for a loud band. But I still love it there. Esp their cigar party's every last Monday of the month
Overall the score of 62 could be better but this place just has too much of a suburban vibe going on.
The selection is fairly large with almost all bottles but I have a feeling the best beers here sit around for a long time.
Iíve had both the best bartenders Iíve ever met and the very worst here...they are either very friendly, quick, and knowledgable or bitchy and ignore you all night. The good bartenders are good enough that by the middle to end of the night after they get a feel for what Iíve been ordering I can just let them select a beer I havenít tried yet. Not much of a tap selection but there is usually something from Custom Brewcrafters, Flying Bison or Ellicotville to order. There is a fun atmosphere, wednesday nights are a good night where it isnít too busy, too smokey, and there is live music. Mixed to older crowd that gets along pretty well - no townies drinking mass quantities of cheap stuff
what is it with these sissys and their distaste for smokers....its a cigar bar with great beer. true, the place could use a little remolding and functioning ventilation but, i guess thats the price we have to pay for such a great atmosphere.
Great beers and you can actually act like an adult and smoke!!!! Live bands on saturday make it a tight fit, but during the week there isníta better bar to be found for sitting and chatting with a good brew a good cigar and a good friend. They cold stand to mix it up a little more often, but still a decent selection. The house brew Hazel Nut brown made by Custom brew crafters is great.
Ask me how smokey this place is, and you can buy a cigar. I saw about 10 taps, and a cask, though the majority was the usual macro suspects. A pretty good bottle collection, though you can get it all down the road at Premiere. Prices were decent, and this is close to a lot of shopping and not too far from Pizza Plant, so itís a worthwhile Buffalo stop. Middle aged people, a bit on the dark and dingy side bar, but not motorbike scare-away. Had a couple of Custom Brewcraft pints, and it was fresh and inexpensive.
Very smokey bar, but being from Pgh, I didnít mind. Very crowded when we arrived. The bartender was funny, and friendly. I liked the way the place was decorated. Nice selection of things that I canít get back home, and they even had Jah-va Stout on tap, which made me excited. We had a few friendly conversations wtih other patrons in the bar, and overall it not bad. Being close to the hotel we are at, it was a good choice and I will seek out again whenever I am here.
