Really good for bar hopping. The crowd varies but I would say mostly a younger crowd. Seems a little sketchy at night but it is generally safe and fun!

What a great little area loaded with shops, restaurants, and bars. Parking can be sticky, but well worth the trouble. Unique little shops, good restaurants serving a variety of cuisine, great architecture, adorable little homes. People are friendly and helpful. Small business is back in Allentown!

I held a One Crazy Summer book club for my daughter and her friends from dance and one of our moms treated the girls to a Paint Party at Paint the Town on Allen St. We had so much fun! Our group consisted of 7-11 year old girls (and one teenage boy) who felt like they "didn't know how to... More

Allentown is an interesting neighbourhood in Buffalo with some great Victorian buildings. Lots of dining options in the area as well.

This is a night time area. Bars more than restaurants...nothing open for lunch on a Sunday other than burgers which we were not interested in. So we left to go have lunch elsewhere. Looks like a fun area but fun at night I think.

Allentown is another charming area to walk and shop. Especially enjoy the antique shops along Elmwood.

Great area to stroll around and stop in an interesting variety of shops and delicious foods to try. Pleasant shop keepers that love to discuss their wares and talk about the area. Nice area to visit for an afternoon stroll. Close to Delaware park.

Great area to hang out in. Lots of great bars, live music. My bartenders were free-pouring whiskey & made me very happy!! Lots of good late night food options too. It's a happening spot.

We walked the neighborhood on a free self guided walking tour found on the visitors page for Buffalo detailing many of the sites along our route. The free download is called Allentown tour. Think its always fun to see some of the old homes restored to some of their original splendor. Its nice to have some points of interest as... More
