Map: Downtown

by / Jul. 6, 2016 3am EST

Some of our old and new downtown favorites just a short metro ride away… 

 1   Babeville / 341 Delaware Ave.

Three cheers for the invaluable three performance spaces in this complex: Asbury Hall, the Ninth Ward, and the Hallwalls screening room.

 2  Mohawk Place / 47 E. Mohawk St.

Venerable live music dive committed to booking indie and emerging talents from Buffalo and beyond. Dueling urinals in men’s room a bonus. 

 3  Chennai Express / 452 Pearl St.

Southern Indian cuisine with bright and friendly service. Wonderful dosas and flavors needed in downtown’s gustatory landscape.

 4  Furnishings / 500 Main St.

Traffic’s back on Main Street and so is small retail. Creative homewares, gift ideas, and more. 

 5  Deep South Taco / 291 Ellicott St.

Yummy tacos and tasty margaritas along downtown’s newest restaurant corridor on Ellicott Street. And the rooftop patio sublime.

 6  EXPO / 617 Main St. #200

A food and beverage market with multiple vendors connected to both Washington and Main streets. There should be one of these in every city neighborhood.

 7  Rust Belt Love / 617 Main St

Getting married downtown? RBL offers wedding stationery and a lot more to give your nuptials a unique Buffalo flavor.
