Bars with live music?

Annual girls trip, looking for a bar with a band on the weekend of Nov 15 and 16th. Rock music, not country, where we can dance. Prefer dive bars and since we're staying out by the airport, we'll be cabbing it-not looking to spend a ton on the fare. Any advice?

It seems that the Black Rock Kitchen and bar seems to be quite popular, but about a fifteen minute drive from the airport, so a bit of a distance...

Hi Kelly,

Here is a website if you'd like to search Buffalo bars: http://www.buffalobarfly.com/bars/

I recommend Nietzsche's [we pronounce it Nee-cheese :-) ] for live music every night: http://www.nietzsches.com/ Although it is a dive and apparently hasn't seen a cleaning crew since the 1930s, it's a great place.

Another place for live music is the Anchor Bar, home of the chicken wing. On Saturdays they have a Latin jazz band, so probably not what you're looking for: http://www.anchorbar.com/news.php

Remember the bars are open until 4am so things don't get really hopping until around 11pm. Have fun!

Macaroons which is not even 5 minutes from the airport has rock cover bands on fri and sat.

Nothing fancy about the place, so it may fit your definition of a dive.


Edit....sorry I just realized your weekend came and went already. :)

Just wanted to let everyone know that we did indeed venture to Macaroons, although against the advice of both the front desk at the hotel and the cab driver. The band was great, Stealin' I think it was. Quick 3 minute walk from Duff's. The service was good, the place was busy, and not what you expect from a bar in a strip mall! Dive bar, redneck bar-whatever-we were 2 mid to late 40's women who had a blast drinking and dancing.
