Brewery | Buffalo, Western New York

At Lafayette Brewing Company, we are dedicated to great beer, great food and lots of fun! With our recently re-vamped pub menu, we know everyone will find something to love. A must see is our newly installed “bar-cade” complete with pinball machines, billiards, darts, foosball and shuffleboard. We brew our beers on site in a 15 barrel brewhouse located directly below the main bar in the basement. Starting from the grain silo in our back parking lot, our brewers are creating beer right here from water, barley, hops and yeast, sometimes spices and always passion. Stop in soon for a pint of the freshest beer you’ll find… Cheers!More

PAUSA Art HousePAUSA Art House

Tapas / Small Plates | Buffalo, Western New York

PAUSA art house is a live music venue, art space, wine and tapas bar located in Buffalo, New York's Historic District of Allentown.
PAUSA presents music concerts and artistic exhibitions focusing on artists indigenous to Buffalo and its surrounding area as well as national and international touring acts. As a complement to the already vibrant nightlife on Allen Street, PAUSA adds a "boutique" entertainment element to the neighborhood with pre-concert and post-concert like receptions that encourage intermingling among performers and audience members.
PAUSA is a gathering place for creative musicians, artists and writers, where a free exchange of ideas can take place. We believe PAUSA will support and enhance the cultural revival of both the Allentown district and Buffalo in general.

The relaxed atmosphere of the venue attracts patrons who wish to attend an intimate concert or an art exhibit while enjoying a glass of wine. More
