11pm-2am: Dance at Rec Room

If you get here early enough, The Reign of Kindo will be performing at Rec Room.  Otherwise, stop on in to this new hot spot for a drink and dance to a song or two before hitting the next Buffalo hot spot.  Arcade games are on the upstairs level for a friendly night of competition.  


2am-4am: Head over to Allen for a drink at Mulligan’s Brick Bar or Falley Allen

Still interested in some late night drinks or dancing? Allen Street has everything you will need and want with its low-key vibes.  Take a pit stop at longtime fixture on Allen St, Brick Bar play a throwback on the jukebox, or try a refreshing Melon Mule at Falley Allen. 


4am-5am: Jim’s SteakOut

Who can say no to late night food? Plus you’ve been hanging out since 5 pm and are probably starving!  Grab a famous Chicken Finger Sub or Steak Hoagie to share with your friends at Jim’s SteakOut on Allen St before your night comes to a close. 


5am-6am: End your night by Ubering home.

Unfortunately the night has to end at some point. Uber to get home safe and sound after a wild and fun night out!
